Hi there, does anyone suffer from pale swolen itchy gums? :(

I woke up with excrutiating pain in upper abdomen last week (felt like kidney Stones, had them a few years ago) just feel a bit beaten up now. Don't know if this has anything to do with itchy gums :) I would be most gratefull for any response, tried calling my gp he's fully booked for weeks, don't feel it's serious enough to push for appointment.

If you think its kidney stones, or even suspect it, I think I'd go the the Emergency Room. Are you urinating any blood? Seems this is something that needs immediate attention. Let us know what happens. Good luck to you.

I would say you need to go to the doctor, quickly, as you could be anaemic. Hope you get it sorted soon

Re. the gums, yes, and after weeks of prescribed mouthwashes to no avail it turned out to be thrush. Canesten Oral Capsule (a single dose tab) sorted it immediately.
