Update: I've been for a BM and hunger pains STILL persist =/
I'm feeling very nauseous yet I still cant actually vomit.
From the web:
Common causes of a left sided abdominal pain include diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, kidney infections, kidney stone, bowel problems, like diverticulitis, and constipation, to pain arising from muscles and skin over the left side of the abdomen.
Left side abdominal pain is defined as pain occurring in the abdomen, to the left of an imaginary straight line drawn from the center of just under chest through the umbilicus or belly button, down to the top of the genitalia.
Any disease process affecting organs or structures on the left side of the abdomen can cause pain there. Left side abdominal pain can also result from organs or structures far removed from the abdomen or near it, or even from pain spreading from other part of the abdomen.
It is worth remembering that causes of central abdominal pain or even right side abdominal pain can over lap and cause pain on the left side of the abdomen.
As in other parts of the body, pain on the left abdomen can occur from disease affecting the following organs found there. Organs and structures found in the left side of the abdomen are:
Left edge of the Liver
Body and Tail of the Pancreas
Left half of the Transverse Colon or large intestine
The Descending Colon
Left Adrenal gland
Left Ovary in women
Left Fallopian tube in women
Blood vessels on the left side of the abdomen including the aorta
Muscles of the wall of the left side of the abdomen
Nerves on the left side of the abdomen
Skin covering the left side of the abdomen.
Structures not found on the abdomen that could still cause pain on the left side of the abdomen include:
Lower part of the Left Lung
Left half of the diaphragm
In a few individuals, their appendix, and all other structures found normally on the right side of the body could be on the left, in a medical condition called Situs Invertus. In those individuals, causes of left sided abdominal pain are actually those causing right side abdominal pain in normal individuals. Here, we will concentrate on causes of left sided abdominal pain in normal setting.
As states above, common causes of left side abdominal pain includes:
Irritable bowel syndrome
Polycystic ovarian syndrome - PCOS
Twisted or Ruptured ovarian cyst
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - PID
Pulmoanry embolism - blood clots in the lungs
Sickle Cell Disease
Rupture of the spleen and spleen pain syndrome
... the list goes on and on like that of causes of abdominal pain.
Would be a great answer if I hadn't of already trawled the net, googling at 5am ....
I was hoping a real doctor could offer advice and I found this place. Apparently all the help I can get is a copy/paste of some random useless crap.
Day 4 - Woke up at 5am in pain, this time the pain is constricting and not constant. Almost like contractions but it's now in the middle of my upper abdomen.
Took 3 laxatives yesterday and today had several bowel movements, I'm sipping water constantly and the pain is still there.
If anyone can help please, please post.
So your complaint is that the 'free' advice is something you already found....but appear to be unwilling to see a doctor for?
If it's really that serious or difficult an issue, then you already know what the next step is - and it's not trolling for advice on forums like this. I suspect any doctor would tell you to seek medical advice in person from a highly trained professional, especially in the case of ongoing chronic pain with no resolution.
I often post information that's freely available as many folks either don't take the time to look at the available information out there from more reputable sites like the Mayo Clinic or US federal information clearinghouses or they often don't have the ability to really search the 'net effectively.
I apologize if the information provided was not helpful, and I hope you see a doctor soon as this is obviously a difficult time for you.
