What Causes Frequent Abdominal Pain?

In the past couple months I have been having an extreme sharp pain in my left abdomen. The pain causes me to be unable to breath and I fall to the floor unable to move because of how severe the pain is. I went to the doctor for it and gave them all my symptoms, period for 6 weeks, fatigued, headaches, heartburn. All of my tests came back normal, but I have still having this pain and when it hits it is very scary.Do you have any idea of what it could be or what my next step should be?

Hi ! Good morning. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.

If I were your doctor, I would go for an ultrasound abdomen to rule out any pelvic adnexal disease or a urinary stone disease on the left side. Apart from it, any kind of pelvic infection or an UTI could also give rise to such pain. To rule this out, you have to get yourself examined clinically by a gynaecologist, followed by a urine routine/microscopic/culture and sensitivity test and also an ultrasound of the abdomen. Therefore, I would advise you to take appointment with a gynaecologist if not done already. Till then, you could go for an antispasmodic drug for a temporary relief.

I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.

Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. I wish you an early recovery. Dr Shareef
