What would cause a mild to moderate pain in the upper left abdomen that comes in waves?

Stomach: Kidney, intestinal, muscular problems. It appears you have had your heart checked, but even if you have fluctuations in your blood pressure, the stress on your heart from that may cause it. I think you will find out the cause between a GI and heart doctor. Good luck to you. I would drink cold milk, take my blood pressure and heart rate (buy a machine).

I'm having moderate pain in lower, right pelvic area when I have a bowel m. Also, occurs when I pass gas. Goin on three days now. See a doctor?

Acute Lt Mid Back Pn: Wait. Try OTC topicals (Aspercreme, Biofreeze, Bengay, China Gel, etc.) localized to your area of acute pain. Try some ice in addition to the OTC topicals.

Your question: I know there's a question in there somewhat but I can't find it! If you're asking if you could have conceived, the answer is possibly. Sperm can live for 72 + hours in the woman's reproductive tract, so, if you had protected sex on 1/1/15, and you ovulated between 1/1 & 1/4, you could have conceived. Check a HPT after 1/14 if you're concerned. ...Read more
