Thank you for the additional information.

There are many different possible causes of lower abdominal pain that has occurred intermittently for several months. It can be related to several disease of the bowel, including inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome. Most people develop diverticula in the large intestine and in some people the diverticula can cause increased irritability of the colon. Diverticula can also become infected, but that usually will cause more acute symptoms. Pain can also be due to intermittent partial obstruction of the gut; complete obstruction will cause more severe symptoms. Lower abdominal pain can also be due to diseases of the urinary system, such as infection or kidney stones. Infections of the male reproductive system, such as prostatitis, can also cause lower abdominal pain. Ultimately, it would require an appropriate medical evaluation to determine the exact cause. Several of these problems may improve with an increased intake of fiber, either in food or a fiber supplement, so this would be a reasonable intervention until you can be seen.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
