Pain and gurgling in lower left hand side gut

Posted , 3 users are following.

For about 4 weeks, I've had this pain, level 2-3, and gurgling in my lower left hand side, just above my hip, tender to touch. Usually worse in the mornings. Went to ER at the hospital yesterday. CT scan=nothing, blood and urine OK. They had no idea of what the problem was. No diarrhea, but sometimes loose stools. No vomiting. No fever. Sigmoid diverticulosis without diverticulitis. No jaundice. No blood in bowel movements. No dizziness. No other pains anywhere.

What is wrong ? Thanks for any suggestions.

    Was IBS mentioned? Have you had a stool test for h pylori? Do you notice if food or stress sets of symptoms? Try a food diary and monitor stress levels.

    The pain seems to have shifted somewhat to around to my left side, and is less intense. It's almost on top of my hip bone ! Gurgling has stopped.
