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. ...Read more

I am experiencing lower abdominal pain (side: left). Dull pain, sharp if I prod left side a couple of inches below belly button. Like this for 3 days?

Many body parts...: The left abdomen has muscles of the abdominal wall (and the nerves coming out of the spinal cord, going to the muscles), the stomach, spleen, parts of the large intestine (colon) and small intestine, the ureter from the left kidney to the bladder, etc... Pain can come from a variety of problems (such as diverticulitis, etc.), so anything other than mild brief pain should be checked by a doctor. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
