Stones vs 'ticulitis: Left lower quadrant pain makes me think of diverticulitis (inflammation of pain-free diverticulosis), kidney stones & ovarian cyst/torsion. The list could include constipation, obstruction, endometriosis & adhesions depending upon your surgical & obstetric history. Go see your family doctor for complete evaluation, diagnosis & treatment.
