Hello everyone,
I am a 30 year old guy that has been having really strange symptoms.
At first I had a left lower abdomen pain.  My doc thought it was constipation and told me to do lots of fiber, water, and exercise.  However, it was not getty any better.
Then throughout the next couple weeks the pain was getting more intense - sort of like a stabbing pain.  I was very gassy all day - specially in the morning and evening.  I can feel my stomach growl all night.
My stomach has been pretty sore, I get pains below my left rib - sort of like a stretching pain - not always - but sometimes.
I went to the ER because I was getting very concerned about the pressure that I was feeling and they did a CT scan and everything was negative.
I am now being referred for a sigmoidoscopy.  I've been using Metamucil to increase my fiber and have noticed some improvement - but the worse part is the sore stomach and lower back pain.  Aaaargghhhh...just want to get rid of this. 
I do not get diarrhea but seem to have constant constipation.
Anybody else have similar symptoms?
