Lower Left Abdominal Pain?

Lower Left Abdominal Pain?

Hi All,

Ok, so I tried searching this first and after going through hundreds of questions about my search, none of them were actually about lower left stomach pain. This started a few weeks ago and it was intense at first, but it's subsiding. However, it's not gone. It comes and goes. It also can be felt sometimes in the area where pants sit and a bit lower, like hip area. Almost the same feeling there as sciatic issues. The stomach pain even made it to the pelvic area sometimes. I don't think… read more

Oh, sweetie....I'm so sorry.....sounds like you have been trying to figure it out really good.....however......I'm thinking you are going to have to bite the bullet on this one, and get in touch with your doctor to make an appointment.
I would start writing down things to tell the doctor to assist him in solving this mystery. (when it started, what you have done, what makes it better/worse, etc.) I hope they can find out what it is, dear.....I will be thinking only the best thoughts for you, and will keep you in my prayers. Please, keep us posted on how you are doing and what happens with this. Many hugs being sent your way!

Sounds like diverticulitis.....seeds can irritate it. I do ok with popcorn but not seeds, even in jams. 💕

I have had the same exact pain on and off since I was 16 but mine is on the right side. I went to every doctor you can think of to get help with this pain. GI, Nephrology, Gyn.....tests tests and more tests with no answers. I also have endometreosis and my specialist finally found that I had scar tissue wrapped around the nerve in my right hip. He did a procedure and scrapped it out and the pain was gone for the first time in many many years. I just had this same procedure done two years ago but the dr didn’t scrape in that area this time. The pain came back a few months ago. It is exactly the way you describe it and in the same location but the opposite side. I also have a history of ovarian cysts and about 3 years ago I had a cyst in my uterus. I noticed when I have these cysts that pain gets alot worse. I also have developed sciatica two years ago. I feel so bad you’re going through this. I hope this helps and I hope you get some answers & relief soon 💜🌻 Gentle Hugs and Positive Vibes 🌻💜. Shan

@A MyFibroTeam Member I have my ovaries and did get diagnosed with a cyst a little over a year ago, but then had a CT scan last summer and they didn't see it. I also don't remember what side it was on. I thought about that too because this started with abnormal bleeding that was a period that was a week early. That stopped and the pain didn't. I have my period now and it's on time and normal. I was constantly checking my temperature and never a fever. I stopped all supplements in case that was causing an issue, but doubting it was a supplement. I can get side effects and intolerances from supplements. I am sure a lot of us can lol. I thought gas at first too, so I was taking gas x for a bit. A friend also told me to check my skin and what it would do if there was poison from a cyst going through me. That's been fine too. I can eat no problem. No nausea. I did add ginger and that seems to have helped somewhat, but not take it completely away. That could be a coincidence too lol.
