Lower Left Abdominal Pain Unresolved

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been having lower left abdominal pain on/off for a couple months now. Ob/gyn did ultrasound, came up normal. I've been to urgent care, doc couldn't come up with anything. Has anyone else experienced this? It's near my left hip, it isn't debilitating it's just there.

Hi Salaw, and welcome to the forum!  Do you have Celiac disease?  As for your lower left abdominal pain, since you have ruled out female issues, the likely cause is gas or constipation.  There are two bends in the colon in that area (see this pic:http://img.webmd.com/dtmcms/live/webmd/consumer_assets/site_images/articles/image_article_collections/anatomy_pages/colon.jpg) and if you are prone to constipation, things can get hung up around there.  You can rule out gas by taking some gas-x and seeing if it helps.  If it doesn't, it may help you to do things to improve the flow of things, there is a ton of information on the internet about help with constipation, but make improvements in your diet before you try medicine or any natural remedies.

Thank you for the reply! I do have celiac disease. I'm not constipated. I haven't tried gas-x I'll have to give that ago.
