Hard to say: Pregnant women often experience a variety of discomforts. They also experience periodic digestive disturbances. They are also prone to bladder infections. When pregnant women experience pain it is important to have it evaluated in person with your doctor to determine if a clear cause can be identified.

I have severe lower abdominal pain right and left that radiates to my lower back. My coccyx is deviated abt 1cm. Can this be the cause of my pain?

Unrelated: Problems w/the coccyx aka tailbone would not cause abdominal pain. I suggest you see your gynecologist or primary care doctor to get to the bottom of this. There are so many possible causes that it really requires a thorough history, physical exam+/-lab+/-radiology tests to diagnose this problem.

I had blood in my urine (everything else wad fine) but my urine culture came back normal. What would cause me to have blood in my urine? I've also had left flank, back pain and lower abdominal pain.

I had blood in my urine (everything else wad fine) but my urine culture came back normal. What would cause me to have blood in my urine? I've also had left flank, back pain and lower abdominal pain.

Multiple causes.: Kidney infection, kidney stones, old menstrual blood mixed with urine, sexual trauma, urethritis, etc. If this continues recheck the urine; however, I suggest a helical CT scan of the kidneys to look for a stone as well as a pelvic ultrasound. Please seek medical attention. ASAP.

What to do if I have severe left lower abdominal pain?

Abdominal pain: Severe abdominal pain should be evaluated in the emergency room. The most likely causes are constipation or diverticular disease although intestinal obstruction is also possible. If female, then ovarian issues could cause pain. At the emergency room, bloodwork, abdominal xrays and a ct scan of the abdomen and pelvis would most likely be completed and should give the diagnosis and treatment.

Left lower abdominal pain, bloating, nausea what can this be?

Left lower abdominal pain, bloating, nausea what can this be?

Few thoughts...: Left lower abdominal pain is commonly associated with either diverticulosis (it is), constipation or irritable bowel syndrome (ibs). Bloating can be associated with both. Nausea without vomiting is non-specific and could go along with all. If symptoms are severe or persist then see your doctor. Good luck!
