Feeling discomfort and pain in the lower abdomen, back pain. Not appendicitis. What else?

Good day. I have been feeling some sort of discomfort or pain at my lower abdomen , around the belt line for a while now. The pain is on my left which is your right. About 5 years ago, the pain was severe and I went to see a doctor thinking it was appendicitis but it was not. The pain subsided for a while but sometimes comes and goes. The pain is not sharp like appendicitis but just gives me serious discomfort that sitting down sometimes in one place is a little difficult and uncomfortable. My palms would be sweaty sometimes at that point Also I have been having this nagging back pain for a couple of months now. I dont notice in particular how i walk whether i bend a lot or not. I crack my back a lot like am cracking my fingers. Its quite disturbing. Would appreciate your feedback.

There are several reason for abdominal pain. It is also possible that sometimes this pain can spread to the back. However it is also possible that your pain could also be originating from the back.

It is important that a doctor can take a detailed history and examine you to find out. Also investigations such as an abdominal ultrasound and spine x ray may be able to provide more information about the cause.

It is advisable that you stop cracking your back as this may put unnecessary strain on the spine and if there is pain may effect it.
