Detailed Answer:
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).
I appreciate your concern regarding pain of your mother. Lowest left side pain which come suddenly seems to be intestinal colic or uretric colic. For this She is advised to get an Ultrasound abdomen and urine examination. Among the medication She should take antispasmodic agent like drotaverine. I hope there is no problem in bowel movements as you haven't mentioned

I hope I have answered your query and this will help your mother. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch.
