Belly Pain (Definition)

Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly.

Burning lower abdominal pain that doesn't dissipate after I go, along with sharp lower left abdominal pain that comes and goes, possibly crohn's?

Possibly: You should definitely consult your primary care physician. Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are definitely on the list, however there are are conditions that could do this as well.
