Welcome and thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX
Since when is the pain?
Does the pain come on bending, any back movements or physical activity?
Is there any tenderness, nausea, diarrhea / constipation?
Any past history of stone or significant past history / previous surgery?
Are your periods regular?
I just finished my period..pain feels better when I lay down, no nausea, no tenderness just a gnawing pain that comes and goes for about 3 days now..similar to menstral pain...only history is hernia repair
Hello,Your symptoms can be due to following possibilities;1) Ureteric stone (ureter is the tube which joins kidney and bladder); an ultrasound, an MRI or CT scan with a urine exam and a urine culture would diagnose it. This is one of the most likely cause for these symptoms. A urine test may show blood in it.2) Recurrent torsion ovarian cyst; an ultrasound and a CT scan would diagnose it.3) Irritable bowel syndrome; if constipation or diarrhea is associated.4) Pelvic inflammatory disease; there is a tenderness when pelvic (per vaginal) exam is done. A course of antibiotic may be needed for the treatment.5) Diverticulosis / Diverticulitis. A CT scan will diagnose it.
6) A muscle pain (myofascial pain syndrome) may also be a possibility.Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Would PID have other symptoms? Also I feel some relief from bowel movements and passing gas. I also notice a localized pain in the left abdominal area when I urinate, but no burning urination or straining
