What could be causing this feeling of discomfort in my left abdomen? I have regular, normal bowel movements and eat a healthy diet. I feel like my guts don't have enough room and I can feel something rubbing in there. It is especially painful driving when I can't stretch and make room for whatever it is. I have had this for several months. Possibly related is very painful periods and ovulation in the extreme lower left abdomen only. These symptoms seem to have appeared within weeks of each other. Help please!
Pain in the lower left abdomen often suggests a problem in the lower colon, where food waste is expelled. Possible causes include inflammatory bowel disease or an infection in the colon known as diverticulitis.
