Cause of Lower Left Abdominal Pain?
Q: I had a really bad pain that was on my lower left side of my abdomine and it got worse and worse over time and it got to the point where i couldn’t take the pain anymore. I went to the emergency room and they said i was constipated well, i knew i wasnt that. I went home on pain medication’s and it still got no better. I felt like i was in labor. I then returned to the er and a obgyn came in and done a ultrasound and found out that i had a cist that had gotten so big it caused my ovary to fall and twist and it couldn’t get blood flow to it because of it twisting. The cist was so big the ovary couldnt support it anymore. they took the ovary out and the pain thank god was gone.
for an ectopic pregnancy do you have to already have a baby to be able to have that. Lower left abdominal pain may be caused by many factors.
The pain may be due to a simple thing such as constipation or trapped gas in the large bowel, or it may occur due to conditions such as bowel obstruction, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, kidney stone or kidney infection. In a woman, we also need to think of causes such as ectopic pregnancy, ruptured ovarian cyst, fallopian tube infection, endometriosis and mittelschmerz (mid-cycle pain). Occasionally, appendicitis may give rise to pain on the left side of abdomen, although in most cases it presents as lower right abdominal pain.
There are many other causes of lower left abdominal pain. If the pain is severe or persisting, it is advisable to consult with your doctor who will be able to do a thorough physical examination and form a correct diagnosis based on your other signs and symptoms, as well as relevant tests such as ultrasound.
