Posted on Sat, 6 Jun 2015 in General Health
Question: I have a slight pain on my right side, lower stomach. It goes away and then comes back again. It isn't a sharp pain. Comes and goes. Feels like it night be in an intestine if there is one in that area.

Need to have more information...

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

I am sorry for the situation you are in. With regards to the slight pain you feel on your right side, lower stomach, intermittent (goes away and comes back again), I need to have further information:
- is it after eating?
- do you feel to pass the motion when you got the pain?
- are you feeling bloated also?
- what about heartburn?
- any medication used on regular basis?
- any personal history of chronic illness?
- burning? pain? during urination?

I need to have these information to rule out bowel or urinary tract problems.

Looking forward to have the requested information in!

I do not have any of the symptoms that you asked me about. Just this pain. Some days I have it most of the day, sometimes just a little bit. I haven't been able to figure anything out consistent as to when or why it happens.

Brief Answer:
Most probably colitis as per your description....

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Thank you for providing the requested info.

Then, most probably your pain is related to your bowels (colitis). A further abdominal ultrasound and endoscopic examinations are advised.

I also advise to :
- avoid foods that would cause gas
- avoid fatty/oily/processed/sugary foods
- observe what foods? drinks? or other activity might trigger/relieve the pain
- do not lay down immediately after eating
- take probiotics to normalize intestinal flora

Hope it was of help!
