Left lower abd: H pylori infests the upper gi tract ( stomach)and not the lower. Sharp,stabbing pains there may be gas buildup in the colon or simple colonic spasms. Pathology involving the left ovarian or pelvic organs are other possibilities. If frequent symptoms persist, see your physician for examination and appropriate tests and/ or referral to a gastroenterologist or gynecologist may be ordered.
