Doctor :   From this far, without a physical examination, it is difficult to predict what the cause might be

Doctor :   3. Urinary tract infection
Doctor :   4. Intestinal problems such as colititis or diverticulitis.
Doctor :   Since all the conditions can only be differentiated by a physical examination and ultrasound scans,
Doctor :   I suggest you to consult a doctor/gynecologist who can guide you through the evaluation.
Doctor :   In the mean time, while you try getting a doctor,
Doctor :   1. Use analgesic/antispasmodic drugs such as Tablet Meftal twice a day to relieve the spasms.
