I was wondering if anyone has a clue what or why this may be. I am booking a doctors apt for my day off next week, but was hoping for some insight before hand!
 
I had a bad week ibs wise 2 weeks ago and since i have found myself needing to pee a lot. I mean like every 20 mins if i am relaxing in bed or on the sofa. But now i find i have a really bad pain in the very low abdomen, in the centre at the front on the same level as my hips. The weirtd part is that it really hurts when i need to go to the toilet (poo) or pass wind. When i get that pressure in my bottom that says i have a bit of gas or need to go i get the pain in front like something is being twisted. Its really very painful.
 
I had a docs apt to find out about why i need to pee so much and they took a urine sample which came back clear with no sign of bladder infection.
Any ideas????
 
Thanks!

Do you still have your appendix?  The appendix is in the lower right quadrant.  If the pain gets worse, get it checked out sooner rather than later.  It could be a urinary tract, cervical, or uterine issue, however.  Have you had a pap recently?

Hi Sarita, I still have my appendix, and i have constant pain in the lower right side, have done for years, but they tell me its my IBS. A pap is a smear test isnt it? I had one a few months ago and all was normal. I have registered with a new doctors today and they are seeing if i can get an apt this afternoon, so heres hoping! A new doctor should hopefully mean new ideas!

Thanks

Indigo

Pubic discomfort associated with difficult evacuation is most likely the bend of the sigmoid colon being trapped before the rectum.

I have this too.Ask him if removing the sigmoid would help.They do this for diverticulis already.

In that area it could be many things. I would suggest a pelvic and abdominal CT scan. You may have an ovarian cyst, an enlarged appendix or something else. at this point we are all just guessing about the pain. My appendix was elongated and wrapped around my ureter causing me pain and having to go a lot. Unfortunately that was before CT scans so they found if on exploratory surgery which was the only way then. Nothing ever showed that my appendix was bad till they got in there and found I was getting gangrene from intestine being strangled. I had my symptoms for about 3 years. It probably isn't that but with CT scans now they can rule out strange things or find strange things.

Thankyou for the replies. I have been put on anti biotics for 3 days as there was bllod in my urine, but i have to go back if they don't help. There is a little improvement, but i don't hold out much hope. I do get a lot of pain in the lower right by my hip and was told that it could be my appendix grumbling, but that a grumbling appendix didn't really exist. That said by the same doc in the same sentence! So it was left at that, but now i think i shall get this new doctor, who asked so many questions and i felt he was really listening to me, to look into it as the pain is becoming more frequent.

Thankyou again

Good idea, Indigo. Don't let your pain go unchecked. What is up with the doc that contradicted himself in the same sentence??? Definitely get yourself a second opinion.
Also, while you're on antibiotics, make sure to try and replenish your good bacteria a couple hours after taking the antibiotic. Yogurt works well, but probiotic supplements are the best.
Good luck! Hope you feel better soon.
