Brief Answer:
You should be investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Pain in the left side of the abdomen could be due to Left Ureteric stone,Colonic lesion etc.Ultrasound abdomen will give a clue.
If it is normal,then the pain could be due to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).Till investigation, I prescribe Pre and Probiotic capsule twice daily to my patients with similar complaints.
Hope I answered your query.If you have any questions, I will clarify further.

Hi i had a stomach infection with IBS symptoms in May for a couple of weeks, then i went on Probiotics for 4 wks and the symptoms got better. I was fine for the next 4 months back on usual diet , until when i travelled to Egypt , got another mild IBS like symptom. This time i was cautious and immediately after being on conscious diet for a couple of weeks and with Probiotics things are back on track. I consulted a GI specialist last time and he gave me Ciprofloxacin along with Flagyl and advised me to take them only if get extreme diarrhea . I am fine now, soon will be out of Probiotics in a couple of days and continue with normal diet, do you think i need to do the course in case i get any other mild attacks in the next 2 months ? I have also become a little sensitive to certain foods like cheese, mushrooms, very high fiber ?

Hi, I am in morocco and suffering from really bad diarrhea , I don t know if it was from the water maybe used to cook with or some bad food. It lasted for 2 full days and was really uncomfortable. I am all about health and don t like taking antibiotics I m more of a probiotic taker but I succumbed and the pharmacy gave me intetrix and flagyl and said I must take both. I started taking them last night and haven t done a diarrhea since which is good but I m wondering for how many days I should be taking them for. Flagyl are 250mg tablets and she said to take 3 a day after meals and intetrix I am meant to take 2 in the morning and 1 before lunch and dinner. Thank you, Lauren

Hello I have been having ammoniated loose stools with bouts of nausea, and intestinal discomfort. I had been dx with mild erosive esophagitis approx 2 years ago. I have been non compliant in taking my antacids. Howver approximately 3 week ago I had a strong acid refux burn in upper gi, accompanied with intestinal discomfort and loose foul ammoniated smelling stools. I have not been on atbs for greater than 2 months. I had been on antibiotics in the past for tx of lyme disease interchanging between amoxicillin, azithromycin, and doxycycline. I have had this in the past and has been successfully treated with ciproflaxin...however this time I have not been on antibiotics, only resveratrol and tumeric. So I am wondering what could be causing these ammoniated loose stools. I have discontinued resveratrol and tumeric for now and am only taking a probiotic and prilosec 20mg for the past week. Reflux has since subsided, intestinal discomfort has subsided somewhat, but I am still have loose ammoniated stools. My blood wbc count is 12,000 and is the only abnormal blood count at this time... liver function, kidney function, wnl
