For the past three days I have been experiencing pain on my lower left side. Below the navel. If sitting still it is just a dull ache. With movement it feels sharper, almost like a tearing feeling. I had been very constipated for 2 days, took a few laxatives which did relieve the constipation, but has resulted in frequent loose stools (approx. 5-6 times during 24 hours). The pain in my lower left abdomen began after the constipation.
