Main Article on Abdominal Pain (Adults) Question: Please describe the cause and treatment of your abdominal pain. Submit Your Comment Comment from: Alexis31 , 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: June 04 I have abdominal pain in the lower left side of my stomach. It is not painful, more like a tight squeeze. This happens every time I bend over. It has not been much of a bother but lately it has been bothering me constantly. Even when I breathe in too deeply I can feel that tight squeeze. I had my appendix removed about 7 years ago. I don’t know if that has anything to do with the pain I feel now in my left lower side. Comment from: Lisa, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: April 14 I have been on and off the toilet since Friday night. My abdominal pain got worse Saturday night and I felt dizzy and lightheaded. On Saturday night, when I went to bed I was up and down to the toilet and have had severe pains in my stomach on the right side, round the bottom of my stomach and the top of my thigh on the right side. Comment from: Margaret m, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: November 10 I have been telling my doctors for the past 6 months about this abdominal pain, but today I got nausea really fast. On my right side, upper to lower back to middle of my shoulder, it is like a really bad burning, like a fireball. The side where it starts, feels like a really sharp stabbing pain that takes me to my knees. I told her this pain is bad and I can’t even sleep with it. I rock myself to sleep, and even when I sit up, I feel it. It’s not normal. Comment from: Mike, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: November 03 I have what feels like pressure or bloating in my lower abdomen. It is a dull abdominal pain however, when I bend over to pick something up. I feel lots of pressure. Unbuttoning my pants or taking my belt off will give a bit of relief. Im 6' 2” and weigh 185 lb. This has been happening for a couple weeks now. I am looking for some advice on things to do with my diet or any home remedies. I am getting in to see a doctor during these times are near impossible. Comment from: Fran, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: October 27 I went to the emergency room (ER) yesterday for abdominal pain and lower back pain. I was feeling dizzy and haven’t had an appetite and when I do eat my stomach hurts again. But they did CAT scan, X-ray and blood work, and it was all clear. But I’m still having that problem, also with congestion. The doctor couldn’t figure out what the problem was so sent me home. I don’t know what to do, I’m no doctor but wonder if it’s an ulcer. I have lost work days also because of this. Comment from: Brenda, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: October 27 I am having lower abdominal pain and swelling. The pain has now become pretty severe. I have a feeling of something dripping at times in there. Also, I am scheduled for a hysterectomy and lymph node sampling on November 15th for possible uterine cancer. I have a 30 percent chance of this. I don’t know what the increased pain and difficulty having bowel movements mean, and I’m also having urinary issues now. I’m so overwhelmed, anxious, sick and over all this. One last thing is severe nausea. Comment from: Jessica W, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: July 09 I have very bad stabbing pains in my lower abdominal region, all the way across the bottom of my stomach. I can barely walk and it feels like I'm being gutted. Comment from: I need help , 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: July 09 I have extreme abdomen distension, especially upper abdomen. For the last 3/6 months approximately 3 times a week I have vomiting at 10 pm or later for hours. My belly button is unchanged and no pain there, the pain radiates to my back, and I have right flank pain sometimes with it at times. It gets worse when I eat or get hungry. I’ve eliminated foods and medicines, but no help. My bowels are moving, yesterday I had a lot of little movements. Comment from: Mystery solved, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: October 20 I have abdominal pain under my right rib cage. It can come from gluten, even if you test negative for celiac. If you have Hashimoto’s disease, do not eat gluten. It looks like the antibodies. My pain and other gastric symptoms are cured. Comment from: AR, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: October 19 For about 1 year I’ve had intermittent, mild, sometimes dull but sometimes sharp pain in my lower right abdomen (above my rip hip bone). It comes and goes randomly but is worse if I’m full. It only hurts when I suck in or put pressure on it or stretch in a way that puts pressure on it. CT scans revealed a small stone in the kidney, 2 mm only, and tight renal cysts compressing the right pelvis. No treatment was done. I am 20 weeks pregnant. Pain still comes and goes but no other symptoms.

I went from being 196 to 144 within three months. I was losing 10 pounds within 2 weeks. The left side of my body goes completely numb, my abdominal pain and stomach cramps are so severe it keeps me bent over in pain. I've had every test imaginable and nothing has been found. I still can't eat and it's October 10, 2020. Comment from: Obfstacy , 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: September 24 I have a burning rubbing sensation under my left ribs. The abdominal pain feels like something is pushing from the inside. I have had endoscopy and colonoscopy with only one small polyp (benign). I am 52, female and have some gastrointestinal issues occasionally. I have occasional diarrhea but sometimes urgency with bowel movements. I have a history of anxiety and depression, although it seems controlled in recent years. I have high blood pressure that started 2 years ago. Had abdominal CT today and results pending. Nervous. Comment from: Reader, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: August 04 In 2013 I was diagnosed with Clostridium difficile colitis. I was treated for 6 months with vancomycin, Flagyl (allergy). No matter what, it didn’t go away. I had a fecal transplant in May of 2019 that seems to have finally helped the C. difficile. It took my diarrhea down from 18 a day down to between 9-12. Through it all, I had a pain that would be fairly constant on my left side from under the rib to the top of my pubis. I would feel swollen and in pain and it would hurt to move. No one can explain it. Comment from: Anisia, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: March 18 They say I have chronic constipation, however I go to the bathroom every day at least once, and it is normal, not hard. About every 8 or 12 weeks I get an abdominal pain that starts under my right breast and travels downward. It takes three days or more for the pain to complete the journey, and during this time I am in so much pain I can’t walk, don’t eat, have broken out in cold sweats and vomited. I miss work. The doctor has run all kinds of test including a liver biopsy. Comment from: Wendy, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: January 28 I have abdominal pain around the ribs and just below my breasts.

Comment from: Essy, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: January 24 I have had right lower abdominal pain since February 2014. When it started I thought I had an ectopic pregnancy because of the pain intensity. I went to my general physician (GP) and had an ultrasound scan, abdominal and transvaginal, and nothing abnormal was detected. I have since had a CT scan, MRI and colonoscopy, and all good. I am however still in pain, it's not always intense but it is always there. It now radiates to my heel, and I am scared to go to the GP now as they say it's all in my head. Comment from: Morue, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: January 15 I’m 49 years of age. I had a stroke 5 years ago where I had no paralysis afterwards other than losing my speech. But since then my entire stomach hurts. I’ve went to my doctor they did CT, ultrasound, scopes and said everything is normal. It continues to hurt. My abdominal pain usually comes on only when I sleep, lying down. The doctor said it’s IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and to watch what I’m eating. Comment from: Bettyboo, 65-74 Female (Caregiver) Published: December 10 My abdominal pain began two and a half years again as a niggle in my mid upper abdomen. Now it is a raging, nauseating, dizzying chronic pain that has dragged me down. Laparoscopy, bowel resection and countless tests including gastroscopy found nothing.

In another week my doctor is getting me to do yet another urine test, but also another to grow a culture on.

Comment from: Destiny, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: October 15 After sex I was ok until maybe 5 minutes later I hurt so badly in the lower part of my belly above my crotch area on the left side, then all the way across. I sat on the toilet and I could barely move couldn’t push the urine out or the other. It hurt so bad I urinated a little, but was still not able to move.
