Brief Answer:
You should be investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Severe pain in lower abdomen cannot be due to herniated discs.
It can be due to Uterine problem, Ovarian issue,Appendicitis, Urinary bladder problem. Ultrasound abdomen will give a clue.
Till investigation, I prescribe Antispasmodic tablet containing Dicyclomine to my patients with similar complaints.
Please consult your doctor and proceed further.

a year ago I developed urinary retention which turned into a uti , I took doxycycline for 6- 8 months which seemed to alleviate the uti, but constipated me a lot. I now suffer from periodic constipation which affects my urinary stream. I have tried staying gluten free as a possible measure to avoid inflammation. I am still really unsure if that will help however. To describe the stool, its sandy and grainy looking, comes out in parts and is never large always small and pencil like. The doctor ruled out my kidney from scans, and also checked my prostate, both tests came up with nothing. I had a cystoscopy as well but no luck with that either. I am perfectly healthy, but still I have constant constipation -no blood is in the stool -undigested food is seen in the stool To add I feel as if I never completely empty my bladder, it feels like something, like urine is stuck in the shaft of penis
