Maybe not: The key to your answer is in the definition of "constant discomfort." if you are awakening from sleep due to pain, your symptoms don't come and go but are unchanging and ever present (or are actually worsening) then it is unlikely you have irritable bowel syndrome. In such a case, further evaluation is warranted rather than you just taking symptom-based medicine. ...Read more

Nonspecific: There is no specific diagnosis to left upper quadrant abdominal pain. Sometimes I have seen muscle spasms here, associated with intermittent pain and a "bulge". This can be confused for a hernia, but the bulge is the firm muscle that's in spasm. You'll have to see your doctor for a more complete evaluation if you need more info. Hope this helps! ...Read more
