I have been having slight discomfort in my lower & lower left

This answer was rated:

I have been having slight discomfort in my lower & lower left abdominal region. It hasn't been sharp or very painful but suddenly did become sharp and painful. When I lightly push in the area it feels as if there is a knot but it's not there all the time. Other symptoms I have been having are some nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, and headaches. It is possible that I could be pregnant because my husband and I have been trying. Is it necessary for me to seek immediate medical help or can I wait to see if the pain persists?

Hello

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

Viral infection can cause these symptoms.

mysticdoc :

Inflammation of the intestines can cause these symptoms.

mysticdoc :

Early pregnancy should not cause diarrhea.

mysticdoc :

So that is unlikely.

mysticdoc :

If the pain persists, you should seek medical evaluation.

mysticdoc :

adequate fluids, and tylenol should help with the pain.

mysticdoc :

Best wishes

Customer:
