For the past four and a half months, I have been experiencing pain in my lower left side of the pelvis. Not a bad pain but uncomfortable. It started at the same time I had a few loose bowel movements but they returned to normal very quickly. Sometimes it is more like an ache low in the pelvis, similar to pre menstrual congestion (even though I am 72, I still remember how it felt!). I also get low back ache sometimes, ache in the left leg and seem to pass a lot of gas particularly in the evenings, when the symptoms seem to be worse. I have had blood tests, stool test and a transvaginal ultrasound. All were normal. All that showed up on an abdo ultrasound was a kidney stone on the left side and a few gallstones. My doctor is baffled. I feel I should have a colonoscopy but not sure the NHS will allow that with my lack of bleeding or other symptoms. I do wonder about pelvic congestion syndrome but would have thought that would show up on the ultrasound. Does anyone else have these symptoms?
