Bad stomach cramps & back pains - December 29th 2010, 11:27 PM

For the last couple of days I've been getting really bad back pains and stomach cramps.
I almost feel delirious with the pain. My head has started hurting aswell like I'm getting a migraine almost.
I work in a bar so it is impossible for me to call in sick over the next 3 or 4 days, how do I make going to work slightly more bearable and any ideas on what you think could be wrong with me, I know none of you are medical experts, I just want some idea as to what could be up.

I would suggest taking some pain relief, take with hot drinks it works alotquicker, also hot waterbottles on your stomach and back may help with pain, keep hydrated and rested where possible.

Maybe you have flu? or stomach bug.

I had that once, my nurse grandmother suggested it was gas pains. Not too sure in your case, though :P Definitely don't be shy to take pain relievers!

Hi, Paige!
It sounds alot like how UTI/bladder/kidney infections feel. Is the pain sharp? and lower back/stomach? And/or off to one side?

What Are the Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infections?
Symptoms of UTI or bladder infection are not easy to miss and include a strong urge to urinate that cannot be delayed, which is followed by a sharp pain or burning sensation in the urethra when the urine is released. Most often very little urine is released and the urine that is released may be tinged with blood. The urge to urinate recurs quickly and soreness may occur in the lower abdomen, back, or sides. When bacteria enter the ureters and spread to the kidneys, symptoms such as back pain, chills, fever, nausea, and vomiting may occur, as well as the previous symptoms of lower urinary tract infection.
^^ From http://womenshealth.about.com/cs/bla...alth/a/UTI.htm

Drink alot of fluids, and maybe try AZO (it's otc). Also, try to get to your doctor ASAP, because the infections can get superbad super fast if they go untreated. I've spent a couple weeks in hospitals because of kidney infections, and it sucks majorly.
Hope you get better!!!

There will come a time, you'll see
With no more tears
And love will not break your heart
But dismiss your fears
Get over your hill and see
What you find there
With grace in your heart
And flowers in your hair

I know I'm like... really late here, but I figure it's worth a shot.
I agree with TryingToLoveMyself on this. I actually just went to the emergency room last night because the pain was so bad, so if you think those symptoms apply to you (and you're already having back pain), I would suggest getting to a doctor as soon as you can, if you haven't already.
