Pain in the lower left abdomen. I have been alternating between constipation and more diarrhea symptoms
Hello, I am 30 years old male. For the past week, I have had pain in my lower left abdomen. it feels like it’s stretched or bruised. It feels like my stomach is pulsating or twitching. I had typical symptoms such as a runny nose, high temperature, and a cough. Then all of a sudden I had diarrhea and have been alternating between constipation and more diarrhea symptoms. What might be causing it? I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow.
@dalyn Hello, the symptoms that you mentioned are related to IBS. IBS is a chronic, often debilitating, functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder with symptoms that include abdominal pain, bloating, and altered bowel behaviors, between constipation and diarrhea. Also, the reason for your pain in the lower left abdomen is IBS. If lower abdominal pain becomes severe or prolonged enough, a doctor can use a variety of techniques to explore the possible causes and identify a course of treatment like CT scan. Please contact your doctor. Thanks!
