I honestly dont' know. you sound really nervous about it though, you should deep breath if both tests came back negative. sometimes our anxiety can unfortunately take over and exaccerbate our symptoms at times. Do you work out at all, is there a possibility you pulled a muscle? sounds silly yet that sort of stuff can give you great pain. I'd probably just do warm baths for now, if your tolerating food and there are no issues there i wouldn't worry about diet. I know without medical insurance it's hard. why would they want to do a colonoscopy? are your periods normal? are you possibly menopausal or pre menopausal?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
There are various causes for left lower abdominal pain. Pain and discomfort on the lower left side of abdomen just below and to the left of navel can be due to several causes such as Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, adhesions, polycystic ovary in females, IBS, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle. Since you do not have a lump or a tender hot spot, in all probability it is not a muscle. It could also be a periumbilical hernia that has got trapped resulting in small bowel obstruction or mesenteric ischemia. There is a possibility that there is a stone in the urinary system. This also causes pain that can be felt in groin and hip area.
Pain in the upper left abdomen and chest area can be due to stomach issues (GERD or hiatal hernia), spleen issues, due to an abscess below the left diaphragm, a hematoma (localized collection of blood), an abscess, or a muscle pull (as it happened while playing). Ultrasound would have ruled out spleen problems and an abscess below the left diaphragm. A CT scan would be more diagnostic.
Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. At least CT should be done. Hope this helps. Take care!
Thanks for your response! I definitely think anxiety could be worsening things. The doctor wanted to do a colonoscopy to check for diverticulitis and endoscopy for crohns. Periods are normal, and not pre or post menopausal (atleast I better not be at 21! ha).
It almost feels like my rib is poking into something when I am laying on my stomach or in certain positions.
Thank you very much for responding so thoroughly. I do believe I'll be going in for a CT or MRI soon.
Doctor did do a CBC and urine analysis and both came back clear.
I'll post back if I find answers!
