The various possibilities which present with such pain in the lower left abdomen are diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, bowel obstruction, ovarian cysts and pelvic inflammatory disease,irritable bowel syndrome , kidney obstruction or pyelonephritis, psoas abscess and volvolus (twisting of the sigmoid part of the large bowel on itself).
Investigations like ultrasound abdomen, CT abdomen and colonoscopy are required to confirm a diagnosis. My advise is to consult a gastroenterologist and discuss these possibilities with him.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Thank you. I am still very tired and the pain in my lower left side is coming and going now. I have had acupuncture sessions which is helping. A rash appeared on my lower back along my spine and has travelled slightly upward. The acupuncture nurse said it could be shingles. The doctor said it was a skin infection and prescribed Germentin. However it does not explain my pain or how poorly ive been feeling. I have a blood test tomorrow.
Hopefully it will be sorted soon
