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?

hello,of course it would be better if you consult DOC,any problem like back pain along associated withpain abdomen,bloating is almost always due to infection only.you should take course of antibiotics after consultation with your physician or else good practitioner,after that,the fiber you are taking will help you lot more in alivating your symptoms&also donot take self medication. take care,bye.

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.
