Question
Good afternoon, i am having a pain directly to the left and about 2 inches down from my belly button. No fever but it is like some one pinches me fir a few seconds really hard then it goes away and cones back again every few seconds/minutes. I am a female, not pregnant, 37 years old. I have had a kidney stone before but i only had pain in my lower back. Is this a kidney stone? I almost have a sick feeling when the pinching feeling comes on but it goes away when pain goes away. Do u have any suggestions? No fever, this is 3 day, getting worse and closer intervals.

Brief Answer:
It can be ureteric stone

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Left side pain can be due to Ureteric stone.
Some times,one stone from the kidney falls into the ureter and gets blocked.when this stone tries to pass down causes severe pain. When it is halted,there will be no pain.
This On and Off pain is called spasmodic pain.
Get an ultrasound abdomen and confirm the diagnosis.
Till then, i prescribe anti inflammatory and antispasmodic Tablets to my patients with similar complaints.
If there are no stones,the pain could be due to infection of gut or musculoskeletal pain.
If you come back with ultrasound abdomen report, i will clarify further.
Wish you good health
