Brief Answer: Possible muscle pull after shoveling snow.. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for sharing your concern with XXXXXXX I have read your medical history and understood your concerns. The pain you are feeling in the left lower stomach/pelvic region might be related to muscle pull after shoveling snow. I advise to apply warm clothing to the pain area and to take oral pain-killers. If the pain will persist for another week, I suggest to get checked by a physician to rule out: - hernia - bowel problems (especially if you are having problems with constipation) - urinary tract issues (stones, infection) - enlarged prostate and to run further tests: - abdominal ultrasound - urine analysis Hope it was of help! Dr.Klerida Feel free to ask me other questions you might have!
