Stomach growl: Often gastro esophageal reflux cause feelings of hunger. It will help important to rule out h. Pylori, or ulcer disease . Blood test , breath test and sometime esophagogastroduodenoscopg (EGD) will be evaluated.

And pain : Non specific Pain is difficult to evaluate. The appendix does not normally reside in the left lower quadrant so issues with uro-gynecological diseases will be ruled out.. In addition bowel problems like chron's ,Ibd, diverticulitis,constipation will be ruled out. Do not be surprised if tests like ultrasound, ct scan barium enemas, or colonoscopy are recommended.

Abd pain: With basic blood tests completed, often an ultrasound will be recommended to look for ovarian abnormalities. If nothing is identified , differential diagnosis includes endometriosis. This often will require laparoscopy. See your pcp or gynecologist for additional suggestions
