Abdominal pain, blood work normal. Hurts to push. Any ideas?

I ve been experiencing pain in my lower left abdomen for about 5 days now. I got my blood work done, nothing wrong there. Urine sample was taken, nothing wrong there. I haven t been nauseous, vomiting , or had any problems urinating. I got an x-ray and sonogram, the results that came back from my doctor were might have hernia in lower left quadrant. My doctor referred me to a surgeon to go get my hernia checked out. There is no bulge, but it really hurts when I push on it or just simply moving my body. Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks for your query
Its good that your diagnosis has already been established but you didnt mention what type of hernia is it. I should advise you to consult a general surgeon and get yourself locally examined. If it is painful to push then there may be strangulation in progress which may present as an emergency and need emergency operation. So dont waste your time. Immediately consult a surgeon, take his opinion and go for surgery straightway if needed.
Thank you.

Thank you for the query.

Lower left abdominal pain may be caused by: diverticulitis (most common cause in people over 50), left ovarian infection, left ovarian cyst, left urinary tract infection or stones. Hernia pain would be more in the groin than in the lower abdomen however you never know. But if the ultrasound were performed and the hernia is possible, surgeon visit is a good idea.
If it will occur that this is not a hernia, you should visit gynecologist. Colonoscopy might be necessary as well especially if you suffer from constipations or there is any blood or mucus in stools.

Hope this will help.
