So far these are a few possible causes from your history it seems..

A kidney stone in lower left ureter could cause left Sharp left qudrant pain...

It could be connected to your diarrhea ....

I am 31 & weigh 288. I have been having severe diarrhea for about 8 months. No blood in stool. But since i got my tubes tied i bleed a lot in between my periods & i am also anemic. I take iron 3 times a day so a total of 6 pills. Anytime i eat i have diarrhea. I have been drinking tons of water as well.

No i have not had stool sent. Doc seems to be stumped. But i know my pain is being caused from something & taking pain killers on masks the pain the pills wear off.

Hello again,

Severe diarrhea for 8 months is way too long...

I think that you need to see a gastroenterologist and have a colonoscopy done to help evaluate ...

Stool studies should be done I think as well ...

It sounds that you may have some form of colitis as a possible cause ...( inflammatory condition of colon and there are different causes and types ..)

I hope that this is helpful for you

Let me know If I may be of further help

Best regards ***** *****
