For past week or so, I have had sharp pain in left chest before bowel movements, goes away after going to bathroom. 24yrs/f...Should I be worried?

The colon makes a fairly sharp turn in the area to start heading south and pockets of gas can accumulate there. Distention of the colon can be quite painful. Once you have a bowel movement the gas can move along. If it does not resolve try probiotics as there may be excess fermentation due to bacterial imbalance. ...Read more

Hip disorders: I am assuming it is also not related to your monthly period. There are various disorders you have to consider.
