Prue, it’s difficult to say what the problem is without being able to examine you, but it sounds like you have some sort of infection in your lower abdomen (salpingitis, appendicitis, cystitis, etc.). It might also be that you’re anaemic due to blood loss, or that you have a chronic disease of sorts. The best would be to get a second opinion from a different doctor. Good luck.
