Yes, starting about 4 years ago. Before I knew I had fibro. Ended up with a hysterectomy when they found endometriosis and adenomyosis in 2006. Just over a year ago I had really bad pelvic pain and drove myself to ER - had diverticulitis! Five days on IV antibiotics and no food and it cleared up, thankfully.
about 3 months ago I thought I had diverticulitis again, but after a CT scan and seeing a surgeon, no one could figure out what it was. One doc thought appendicitis and another though diverticulitus but it was neither. Resolved itself, mostly, but I still get stabs now and then.
Are you talking about lower abdominal, like pelvic or higher near your belly button?
I think mine pains are possibly mild IBS. Already tested negative for the bladder one...interstitial cystitus? The other possiblility is scar tissue and/or adhesions from the endometriosis and/or the hysterectomy.
The most recent bout threw me into such a depression because I spent over a year the first time, before I finally convinced the 3rd OBGYN I saw to do an endoscopy and he found the endometriosis and chronic PID (cause by the endometriosis). Finally, I had a diagnosis. Unfortunately, it was not the final word, but that was such a frustrating and depressing time making the rounds of specialists and getting no answers. I did not want to go through that again. I was so glad the pain mellowed out this time.
Anyway, there are so many possible causes, and sometimes no cause can be found, so I would say sometimes fibro pain manifests as abdominal pain.
Just my 2 cents!

Yep. All the time. Been dx'd with endometriosis, IBS, gallstones, colon polyps, and recently gastroparesis. Scar tissue from multiple laprascopic surgeries doesn't help. Sometimes it can be hard to know whether there is a new problem or just more of the same. It's, well... a PAIN!

Yes, I had a hysterectomy in 2003 and had adenomyosid, then in 2005 my appendix ruptured and I was in the hospital for 10 days. Since then, I still have abdominal pain, but if it doesn't go away in 2 days I always call the doc to be safe.

Absolutely! I get pains in my stomach, on my left side under my ribs. I've been told it's primarily an IBS thing and that there's not much that can be done (other than following all the IBS rules)

A couple of years ago I had it so bad that I ended up in the E.R. They basically just ran a few tests that showed nothing and sent me home. Right after my GP put me on Nexium and I felt much better. I still get some pain, but not as badly as I did before I took Nexium. I don't know if this means I had an ulcer and they missed it or what, but now I do just have IBS kind of pains that are relieved by going to the bathroom, instead of the excruciating, doubled over-can't walk kind of pains that I used to have.

I have abdominal pain most of the time, I have IBS as well, and petechiae fibroid tumors, and chronic PID, as well as a c-section scar that runs from hip bone to hip bone, which sometimes hurts especially during menstrual cramps. I keep Advil in my system and Tylenol, and I have gone through 3 heating pads in as many yrs, and I grow so... dependant and emotionally attatched to them that I've named them all, currently I'm on Heaven, which is 22 inches long, 18 inches wide, 4 different heat settings and FLEXABLE!! So I can wrap it around a knee or elbow or wrist. Aside from that, I watch my diet (dairy hates me) and pray that every day is a good day.

It's always good to check with  your doctor when you get things like this.  It could be from scar tissue, too.  But it's better to be safe than sorry.  Hope it goes away  as quickly as it came.

Yes. I was dx with IBS about 20 years ago then endometriosis a few months before I was dx with fibro (they came about the same time). Birth control pills help my abdominal pain from the endo.
The IBS, I try to watch my stress and diet. Not alot you can do.
But the same aches that we get in our muscles/ joints, I get sometimes inside my belly as if the tissue around/in an organ is inflamed (?) Weird huh?
