pain in the lower left side of abdomen with bloating

For a last 3 weeks I have pain in the lower left side of abdomen with bloating and it is getting worse day by day
the pain comes especially before bowel movement or when I have gases
my lower left abdomen feels bloated
It feels like there is an obstruction somewhere inside
the interesting thing is that when I press on my left abdomen it does not hurt at all just feels bloated all the time
I'm full when I eat a small dish, lost appetite for food also noises coming out of my stomag all the time

I had a barium colon xray and that didn't show any obstruction in my main colon so I'm thinking it could be an obstruction somewhere in the small intestine

I saw two doctors and they can't figure it out what is wrong
I'm waiting for a blood test result

I'm not sure what is the appropriate way to diagnose my problem MRI or CT scan?
Any suggestions or clues welcome

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I don't believe it is an obstruction.  The way to diagnose an obstruction though is through a CT scan.  You might still want to consider a CT scan because this can show many other things.
