Has anybody ever had a stabbing pain in their lower left abdomen which comes and goes? I've been having this since Saturday and it won't seem to go away. I've had pains in my left side from my colitis but never something that went on for this long. I do have a groin injury but that tends to hurt lower down in my actual 'groin' area and pubic bone area where I get muscle spasms (very annoying!).
I also have been having pain in my left side and back which seems less frequent. I do feel popping in my abdomen but can't imagine this much pain could be from gas, could it???
I'm not having any blood in my stool, not really formed BM's yet but not loose either - sort of very small, thin in-between. Some mucous at times. I am going to my primary care doc this afternoon for some blood tests, and back to Mayo tomorrow to see the GI (the 'real' GI this time who's been in this field a LONG time - not the resident they stuck me with the past year who told me to stop my meds and put me into a flare!)
Has anybody had this and have it just be from IBS, gas or even UC when you aren't bleeding? What else could it be? All I can think of is kidney stones or pancreas issues. I'm a bit nauseas as well.
UC - diagnosed 1994, in remission for 10 years, currently getting over a flare
