    Lower left quadrant (LLQ) abdominal pain is non-specific and can be due to a host of causes. The presence of other signs and symptoms, your medical history, findings after a physical examination and relevant tests are therefore necessary to make a diagnosis. You need to see a doctor who can properly assess your case and decided on the relevant measures to take to identify the cause.

    It could be due to a gastrointestinal problem, urinary tract, gynecological (women), spinal column, back and abdominal wall. See your doctor as soon as possible and try to take note of other symptoms that may have started up with this pain, even if it seems unrelated, events that preceded it, and factors that exacerbate or relieve the pain. All of this information will be helpful in the assessment.
