Make sure: It is not pregnancy by doing a pregnancy test if you were even close to a guy. Otherwise see your health provider to check for cystitis or ovarian cyst or colitis or other etiology.

Blood in urine soreness in kidneys 4 month suden dull pain in left &went 2 both &hips &L side abdomen &lower area stopped some perid wk go now agin?

Hard to figure out: What your question is. If you don't have kidney stones, which is most common reason for flank/ back pain and blood in urine, then infection and tumor must be ruled out. Please proceed to see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Dull pain in left and right lower abdominal quadrant. What can I take to relieve the pain. It is not serious with no other side effects.

Depends: I am glad this seems not to be serious to you. One suggestion can be using over the counter meds like acetaminophen, or ibuprofen: however, both of these meds may cause problems or may not be a good choice depending on your medical history. Such pain can be from benign things like constipation, but more serious problems can also start this way. Especially at age 81, if the pain continues, be seen.

I 52yrs old I have a 3cm cyst on my left ovary I was bleeding last week but the bleeding stopped I have a dull pain on my lower abdominal left side i?

Pelvic pain: Pelvic pain is complex as there are several organs in the pelvis. The ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, bladder, appendix, intestines, colon and rectum can all be the source. Pelvic pain requires and examination to help organize the evaluation. Most ovarian cysts resolve on their own. Your Obgyn will need to assess it. If you are postmenopausal and bleeding then this need evaluation

Lower left abdominal dull pain when I walk. Lymph also swollen that side. & I'm gassy. Doc said possible infection or hernia, most likely infection?

Lower left abdominal dull pain when I walk. Lymph also swollen that side. & I'm gassy. Doc said possible infection or hernia, most likely infection?

Difficult to say: I think you need some vital signs and a good physical exam. If the doc doesn't know if you have a hernia or lymph node, see another doctor. If the pain gets worse I would be concerned for diverticulitis and that means you need to see a doc ASAP as you can have an infection in your colon which can potentially rupture. This is speculation as there is limited information. Either way, get a good doc.

My partner has a very sharp/dull pain in the lower left side of her belly and she feels sick. What could this be, painkillers haven't helped.

Abdominal pain: Get an evaluation. It could be an ovarian cyst or an ectopic pregnancy. Less likely for your age would be diverticulitis, an outpouching of the intestine which can trap food or debris, resulting in inflammation or infection.

Non specific: Hard to tell. Take note if your symptoms are related to eating, fatty foods or how hydrated. Increase your oral liquids. Go in for evaluation if you develop fever or vomiting. Constipation, a bad gallbladder, hernia and adhesion are all possible. Be well

I always get slight pains in my stomach. On both sides by my ribs, lower left side. Under my left armpit and shoulder. Same dull pain to. Thyroid?

I always get slight pains in my stomach. On both sides by my ribs, lower left side. Under my left armpit and shoulder. Same dull pain to. Thyroid?

Stomach pains: Don't know exactly why you think this is directly associated with thyroid, which can always be an underlying issue overall but it seems to me like gas pains or bloating issues which can give you referred sharp like pains under your ribs and shoulders. Try eliminating as much processed breads and pastas and see if that gives you some relief.

I'm having dull pain lower left abdomen for a week, now I feel it only when I am at rest, sitting and not while walking or doing something, any clue?

I'm having dull pain lower left abdomen for a week, now I feel it only when I am at rest, sitting and not while walking or doing something, any clue?

Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment.

My lower abdomen left side is aching, why?

My lower abdomen left side is aching, why?

LLQ pain: Not sure why - one classic cause of left lower quadrant abdominal pain is diverticulitis, an infection of part of the colon. This can often be treated with antibiotics. For females, we would need to consider gyn issues like ovarian cysts. Talk with your pcp about these symptoms and you can go from there.

Dull pain at left side of abdomen for about three years. Was told have gallstones. True.?

Dull pain at left side of abdomen for about three years. Was told have gallstones. True.?

Gall bladder on R: Usually gallbladder on the right, so unless you have situs inversus, , not likely to be gallbladder pain. Make have stones (many do) and no symptoms. Problem with abdominal pain is that there are MANY causes. Unable to diagnose remotely. Keep symptom and diet diary to see if connection. Regular follow up with health care provider to monitor symptoms, up date exam findings and begin testing.
