Slow transit disordr: Many kids or adults have natural or acquired slow intestinal movement.This leads to irregular stool habits & to an over sized & weakened final colon segment with less power to fully empty. Most can rehab the system by pairing scheduled emptying at least 2x daily & using a wetting agent like MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) to keep things soft for at least 6m. The goal is to keep as empty as possible & let the gut heal. ...Read more

Depends on how often: Perhaps bowel. Recurrent cramping pain, especially if accompanied by hardening of the uterus, might be early labor. Only evaluation by OB provider and monitoring can determine what. In many cases, preterm labor occurs in women with no known risk factors or history of premature birth. So any woman with pain that 'comes and goes' should notify her OB provider or go to labor & delivery for evaluation. ...Read more

PID or UTI: I would be concerned about pelvic inflammatory disease (pid) or a urinary tract infection (uti). Both are infections caused by bacteria and need to be treated.

Pid can lead to infertility if untreated and untreated UTI can damage your kidneys. ...Read more

Family practice : If you had an epidural then possibly you are taking a pain medication as well. This can cause constipation which will cause this type of pain. Diverticulitis is fairly common and can cause left lower quadrant pain. I don't think the epidural shot is causing the pain however. Check with your dr if it persists. ...Read more

I'm having pain in my lower left side of my abdomen and also I have had a lot of diarrhea lately and my period is over and I have a brown discharge?

Lower left: Discomfort in the left lower abdomen combined with diarrhea suggests a colon disorder which may be irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis or other types of infection in the intest or inflammatory bowel disease. However pathology in the left pelvic region cannot be excluded as a cause. Avoid harsh roughage in your diet and start with an evaluation by a gastroenterologist if bowel symptoms persist ...Read more

I have bad pain in my lower left side. Occasional nausea and bad headaches. Pain in side worsens when I cough. Been told have a 3cm cyst on left ovary?

Ovarian pain: Pain from the ovary or left abdominal pain is always a concern. A MD usually acts on the information, but a small 3 cm ovarian cyst is the unlikely cause because it is only one inch+ in size. Call your MD and explain your continuing symptoms. ...Read more
