Hi back,

I understand your concern.

1. As per our last conversation, I advised you to run a ct-scan. Any reports so far?

2. You are saying that you feel a sharp pain right after eating. Are you also experiencing changes in your bowel movements also?

I did not have a CT scan because of the exams period.
Yes but i think because lack of vegetables in the diet.
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Constipation might be your main problem...

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

Ok, then, from what you are describing, as you are not consuming vegetables in your diet, and having changes in your bowel movements, I believe you are suffering of constipation.

Constipation is causing distention and gas in your bowel, and consequently pain in left side of stomach.

I advise to:
- increase water intake
- try to consume more vegetables
- try to be more physically active
- if constipated, try to use prune juice or kiwi; gentle laxatives can also help like: lactulose, senna
- take anti-spasmodic medications to ease the pain

Hope it was of help!
