I've had on and off again pain in my lower abdomen for the last couple of months. I was on meloxicam and another drug for prostate issues. My doctor thought that was causing the abdominal pain.The pain went away after I stopped taking the meds.
Fast forward a couple more weeks, the pain in my abdomen came back and seemed to move around. It was a low grade dullish pain that was more a nuisance than anything.The pain went away again for about a week and now is back again. However, this time, I have a sharp pain in my lower left abdomen. It comes and goes and rarely lasts for more than a few seconds. I don't have any other symptoms other than being gassier than usual. My bowel movements are normal other than occasional bright red blood in stool. My appetite is normal and I have no fever.
I'm scheduled to see a GP the end of the week but am thinking of just cutting to the chase and scheduling something with a GI doctor. Does this sound like diverticulitis? Could it be something else?
