Why am I having pain and bloating in my abdomen with back pain ?

I m a 26 year old, 5 4, 138lbs female. I am pretty healthy, exercise regularly, and don t have any health issues. I ve been having abdominal pains on my left side, bloating , and back pains for about 5 days now. I ve been eaten a lot of fiber lately, so I was thinking this could be the cause. What might be the case? Should I see a doctor?

Hi Sonya,
Yes it would be best to meet a doctor , who can examine you and determine the cause of the pain. Have a light diet of curd or dal and rice. Take it slow on the fiber diet and concentrate on a more balanced diet complete with fruits and vegetables. Have minimum 10-12 glasses of water.
