Done colonoscopy, have pain when sneezing. Normal?

Hi, I had a colonoscopy last Tuesday (15) and I have a sharp pain that only arises when I sneeze , burp or laugh. It is in the lower left side and it is also very uncomfortable and painful to find a position to sleep in. It feels like the pain one gets while running, but more intense. It is not painful to the touch. Is it normal? What could I do to make it lessen? My bowel movements are normal and everything else is. Thank you for your insight.

Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described information and past history of colonoscopy, there appears to be least possibility of abdominal pain and colonoscopy.
Normal bowel movements suggests normal colon activity.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ general surgeon and should go for thorough check up.
There could be possibilities of muscular ache, peptic ulcer disease, renal stone pain.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for ultrasound imaging, endoscopy and chest x ray for better clarification.
You should also take proton pump inhibitors, muscle relaxants and antispasmodics.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
