I’ve had stomach pain for 2 weeks or so. All lower abdominal, sometimes coming up higher. It is sometimes left side, sometimes right. It’s not severe or crazy. It is just dull ache.

I also have pelvic soreness, above the penis. I have had micro blood found in urine and they are running more tests soon. Unsure if related to stomach ache.

Thank you for the information and I am glad to assure you that there is nothing suggestive of appendicitis here.
But from your system analysis I feel that we need to consider -
1. Interstitial cystitis
2. Urethritis
3. ProstatitisMay I suggest you discuss these possibilities with your physician and get yourself appropriately evaluated and managed please.I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you today!Is there anything else where I can be of assistance to you in this regard please.

Can you still get Cystitis if you have a urine culture test in urine and is negative ?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 15 days ago.

Yes, it need not be bacterial infection.

It can just be inflammation.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Okay. Thank you dr. Is your reason for negative appendicitis due to not crazy strong pain in 1 location?
Expert:  Dr.Sumanth replied 15 days ago.

Not only that. There is no fever or vomiting or diarrhea.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
