If you are older than 40 years, the left lower quadrant abdominal pain
accompanied by passage of soft stool (Diarrhea
) with blood means
that you might be experiencing an attack of diverticulitis
. These are
small pouches or pockets in the large intestine that get inflamed
and cause these symptoms. Usually, there is also fever and chills
is part of this as well. If you have had upper abdominal
problems with acidity etc, I would be concerned about a bleeding ulcer.
I f these syptoms progress, I would recommend that you get in touch with
your doctor immediately and seek appropriate care.
Wish you well.
