Hi,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic. This left sided pain if is present close to the pelvis then it can be due to kidney stones, pelvic infections, urine infections, twisted ovarian cyst or rupture of ovarian cyst ( if you are a female) or irritable bowel syndrome. An ultrasound and CT abdomen can be done. For the flatulence, upper GI endoscopy is helpful in confirming the diagnosis of acid reflux disease or peptic ulcer disease. A gastroenterologist should be consulted.

Hope it helps you. Regards.

Hi, I am a 22 year old male. Height 186 cms, Weight 87kgs. I have had no major illnesses in the past. My query is that since the last two months I have been experiencing a lot of flatulence with a very foul odor. There is a feeling of bloating also. My bowel movements are very irregular and the stools exhibit a very foul odor. I also experience occasional pain in the left side of the abdomen and just below the stomach. I moved to new city two months ago and my meals mainly consist of restaurant food and rarely do I consume home cooked food. I was diagnosed with colitis about a year ago and with a course of antibiotics I was fine. Requesting your help.

I have little red bumps all over my stomach and chest that don t itch . I am a bit overweight and a teen. I play many sports which might be just a sweat rash , but I don t know why I also have them on my stomach in that case. They seem to be appearing in only the places I don t tan. Could you give me some insight on what they may, or may not be?

I have a peptic ulcer , or so I think, hunger burning pain relieved with food or antaciids. Can t afford to go to a dr at the present. Am a regular user of ibuprophen, 800 mg, on a daily basis, sometimes 4 times a day, have been know to take them when drinking alcohol, using them also to help with heavy menstruation , I am 52, so I do go some time without periods. I take Prilosec every morning, started with zantac , changed today, been doing this for a week. Drastically changed my diet , no soda , no Caffeine, no pork, no red meat. Drinking water, fat free milk, some chicken and veggies. Now my question. My stools are great as far as texture and times I go, but they have gone from a med - dark brown, to a golden yellow brown color. When I wipe, and excuse me for the graphic nature, it is more yellow. The color could be described as a golden rod color. Is it normal for your stool to change color with a huge diet change. I must mention that I am also a hypochondriac, and this is driving me crazy. Have looked online everywhere, can t find any range of normal colored stool. Well too bad, at the moment, I can t afford to pay what is required to see the answer. Thanks, Karla
