Left lower abd pain: The two most common causes of left, lower abdominal pain are constipation (pain would likely be "crampy") and diverticulitis (an infection of a little sack on your colon), which might have low grade fever and would have a sharper pain when you pressed on it. Women are susceptible to other causes of pain in this area such as pelvic infection or ovary problems.
