I have had lower belly discomfort for about a week. Feels like I should have diarriha but I don't. I was awakened from sleep with the same feeling and now I have lower right back discomfort. Not sharp pains, but enough to be uncomfortable. I haven't been nausious, no fever, no loss of appetite. Any thoughts?
