Thanks for your query.

History of left salpingo-oopphorectomy noted. IN view of the normal abdominal can the pain on the left side could be due to the following:
Intestinal obstruction.
PID- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease.

I would advise you the following.
Take a course of an antibiotic, antispasmodic,.
X=ray of the abdomen in standing position to see for intestinal obstruction as it can be missed in a scan which is done in the lying down position.
Repeat scan to see for any missing diagnosis.
Per-vaginal examination by a Gynecologist to find a probable cause on physical examination.

See the response for medical management. Diagnostic Laparaoscopy may help in many cases.

Hi, I ve been feeling pains (they feel like menstrual cramps but their not) in my upper abdominal area. I feel it the most when I m standing, or walking around. Sometimes it comes on really strong for a minute or two and I feel nauseus and a little dizzy if I turn too fast. My mom s been saying that it s probably just the stomach flu but I m just not sure....could you help me?

My fiance is an ultramarathon runner. Extremely fit. He runs 15 miles like it s nothing. Yesterday he went on a standard 17-mile training run. He made it five miles and pretty much crashed. He tried to tough it out, but actually ended up getting severe diarrhea and passing out on the side of the trail for a while. He almost had to crawl the last 7 miles to his car. He says he was well hydrated. He was careful about his salt levels. He ate a good breakfast, and he eats plenty of meat (chicken, fish, beef etc). When I got home from work, he was curled up on the couch, shaking and taking frequent, sharp, shallow breaths. I asked to take him to the ER and he refused. He fell asleep for 2 hours, breathing that way, and when he woke up, he started crying(He does not cry)! He seemed to get his energy back, but this morning, the effort of getting ready for work left him short of breath, and he was complaining of abdominal pain. He went to work anyway. Help!
