Worst pain possible...146 doctor's online and none willing to give any help without the almighty dollar interfering. Nevermind, this was as useless as Pullman Regional hospital

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* As per my clinical experience, there are various reasons for the painful muscle spasms in lower abdomen as
- intestine colic
- calculus related pathology in urinary tract
- ligament or muscle spasm
- other pelvic pathologies ( as ovary in woman ).

* In our clinic, I recommend primary relief with painkiller injection as Diclofenac or else if no history of drug sensitivity and later prescribe to get a CT scan of the abdomen & pelvis for further guidelines.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
