Hi doctor,

I have some health concerns. I am 47 years old. I take hypertensive medications. Lately, I experienced abdominal pain accompanied by lower back pain and every morning I have experienced difficulty in urinating that started four days from now. I have no edema. Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It seems you are a hypertensive patient as you are taking Losartan but the side effect of Losartan is abdominal pain and diarrhea but in your case situation is different. You have difficulty in urination and if you have lower abdominal pain then my straight diagnosis is renal and ureteric calculi. It means there may be some stones in your excretory pathway.

So, for that, get an ultrasound of abdomen done and drink plenty of water. To prevent infection, take tablet Oflox OZ (Ofloxacin and Ornidazole) 650 mg one tablet three times per day plus tablet Pan 40 (Pantoprazole) one tablet three times per day for seven days but be sure to get an ultrasound of your abdomen done.
