Pain in lower abdomen. Cannot bend, twist body. Having stomach pain which relieves after using the bathroom. Reason?

I woke up this morning and got out of bed, while getti out of bed I felt a sharp pain in my lower abdominal side. Ignored it. But when I tried I get back in bed and lay down, or lean to my right or left, I had a excruciating sharp stabbing pain on my left abdominal side. I can sit on a couch but I have to sit up staight and not twist or bend to avoid the pain. I lay on my right side majority if the time when I sleep. I have been noticing some pain in my belly a few nights and mornings. It usually goes away after I use the bathroom. It feels like an Iran is twisted maybe. My stomach is also bloated.

Psychiatrist Dr. Srikanth Reddy's  Response
The type of pain that you are describing especially the one which changes in severity by movement suggests a musculo-skeletal origin. You might have hurt your spinal bones while having an awkward posture. You will need to undergo an MRI to identify what actually went wrong. As of now, you need to take some bed rest and cold water massage over your back. If the symptoms persist over 3-4 hours, you should visit emergency department.
Hope I am able to solve your concerns.
Thanks !
