Hello Jade, did u ever think of ventral hernia. It coud be incarcerated and cause such a pain. You should check your abdominal wall with ultrasound. For more detailed infos CT scan shoud be done. You shouldnt feel such a pain without any reason. If you have increased inflammatory parameters than an intraabdominal infection must be evaluated. Pain can be also caused by peptic ulcers so do gastroscopy. If you by "Swollen tummy2 mean that ots distended than an intestinal obstruction or IBD should be the reason, but also intraabdominal collection can cause this. So as you see there is variety of diagnosis related to it so the best way te clear this out is to do some of imaging tests, colonoscopy isnt enough.

Wish you good health, Dr. Ivan Romic (Rominho)
