No back aches. No blood. Had urine test. Nothing there. Female...64
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Maybe a bit more of a desire to urinate but it flows normally. Sometimes discomfort can be felt around pubic bone.ct scan showed no abnexal masses, no osseous lesions, bladder partially distended,
Doctor: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Thanks for the information.

It looks like you were examined and tested properly.

Is this pain in left lower abdomen or in your back? Any blood in stool, belching, bloating, fever?

Lower left pelvic area...no blood, no fever, some gas
Doctor: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Thanks for the information.

It does not sound like anything serious. Moreover, you were examined and evaluated and things were ruled out. At your age, pain in that location could be due to diverticulitis, localized inflammation in GI or pelvic organ. It could be also a just trapped gas. IBS can also present like this, but less common at your age. Overall, I don't see it as anything major. You can take rest, urine OTC pain meds, increase your water intake, exercise daily and increase your mobility.

Emergency dr. Said maybe ibs. It is just so frustrating to have this reoccurring pain and not know what it is or how to treat it. Ovaries, uterus were all clear on the ct scan
Doctor: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 3 months ago

I can understand your frustration. Since your CT was normal, ovaries and uterus related causes are ruled out. IBS possible and it can present like this, it's a functional disorder and all tests would come out as normal. Your can take OTC pepto-bismol and see if you feel better with pain and discomfort. Exercise and high fiber diet is helpful. Also, try to reduce stress as it's linked with IBS.

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.
