Thank you for the quick reply.
The symptoms you have described about your husband of having severe pain in the lower left quadrant since last 2 hours can be due to various causes like:diverticulitis, colonic infection or inflammation of the colon,mal absorption syndrome,(MAS),irritable bowel syndrome(IBS).Certain medications can also cause this.
He need following tests:
-Ultrasound of lower abdomen,
-Endoscopy/Gastroscopy or EGD,
-Stool examination & culture,
Exact underlying cause can be determined by these tests.
For pain relief,give him tab. Ibuprofen 400 mg from the counter. It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.
If still after this,the symptoms of pain persists,then you need to take him to ER/hospital as prescription oral medications/shots will then be required accordingly.
Hope this helped.
