Left Lower Abdominal Pain (Overview)

The abdominal cavity can be broken down into four quadrants, the division lines are the midline that divides the right from the left and a transverse line that is at the belly button. Within the left lower quadrant, lies the sigmoid colon (part of the large intestine), the left ovary (females), and the left kidney ureter. If abnormally enlarged, the lower part of the spleen can extend here.

I am 29 weeks pregnant and I have had continuous lower abdominal pain with constant migraines and no appetite. What do I do? I am 21 years old. I have HIV that I have been getting treatment for for the last 3 years, and I have also tried anything to help

Hello. : Hello. You sound like you are feeling miserable right now. I am specifically concerned about the continuous abdominal pain with loss of appetite (especially if the pain is severe). Because the cause of pain is unknown, recommend that you be evaluated by your obstetrician. Your OB doctor will likely be able to determine if the pain is related to pregnancy or if there may be a different cause. If this is not related to the pregnacy your gynecologist may do a consultation with another specialist. I think that rather than just working to control the pain right now, it may be even more important to determine the cause of the pain so that it can be addressed. Take care. ...Read more
