Depends: I am glad this seems not to be serious to you.

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

Why do I have severe, stabbing upper abdominal pain after sex? It lasts 20-30 minutes with occasional radiation to the edge of left quadrants.

Most likely PID: Painful intercourse, also called dyspareunia, is often related to pelvic inflammatory disease. That said you have lost weight. Was that unintended? There are many possibilities that come to mind and in this instance I suggest a visit to both your primary MD (family or internal medicine) ANDa visit to GYN. They will need to work together to diagnose and treat this problem, ASAP. Delay is unwise. ...Read more

In: In the left lower quadrant, the differential diagnosis includes: diverticulitis, ovarian cyst or other pathology, pelvic inflammatory disease, kidney stones or urinary tract infection. On occasion, the pain can be from appendicitis, pancreatitis or peptic ulcer disease. Other symptoms, such as fever, diarrhea, burning during urination, vaginal discharge, nature of pain (moving, crampy, referred to another location) can also assist in narrowing down the causes, but given the severity and point tenderness, suggesting a localized process with peritoneal signs, you should head into your physician for testing, including a ct scan and bloodwork. ...Read more

If one had been constipated prior to the diarrhea, stool could have backed up the right side, and caused pain. Having gas may or may not be related to the discomfort (lactose intolerance will cause gas). A hernia or ovarian problem can cause pain. ...Read more
