If you just have a lower abdominal pain(lower left quadrant) and no other symtoms does that mean you may have appedicitis?

Unlikely : Abdominal pain and the associated possibilities of diagnoses are endless. It is important to talk to a doctor to obtain a detailed history, a thorough exam, and tests that can confirm or rule out what we suspect you may have. Without this, we can only take an educated guess based on what's common. You may have ovarian cysts, pelvic infection, diverticulitis, hernia, but appendicitis is unlikely. ...Read more

I am having pain in my lower left quadrant. Its really low. I palpatated it and felt a specific spot where its worse. When should I go to the doctor?

Sooner the better: Any unexplained abdominal pain should be professionally evaluated. At age 23, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID, fallopian tube infection with gonorrhea or chlamydia) is among the most common causes, especially if you also have vaginal discharge (but of course only if at risk for STDs). Get examined for sure if the pain lasts more than 24 hours, if especially severe, or if any fever. ...Read more
