I've had horrible stools (sometimes bloody), as well as severe cramping. Lately I've noticed a sharp pain on the left side of my belly button, and very severe pain on my lower left side. It's not appendicitis, and my doctors don't know what it is. Does anyone else have an idea? Some background, I'm a female, not pregnant, age 20.

    Which tests have you had so far? I'm assuming you've undergone the standard blood tests, urine/stool, ultrasound, etc.?

      Yes, you're correct I've undergone all those tests, as well as three abdominal xrays. I got an internal and external ultrasound as well. All came back good, including my blood work.

      No I have not, I'm currently without insurance and already owe a lot of money to the hospitals, they also recommend I see a gastrointestinal doc

      Why don't you try with some OTC drugs and see if they helps. You should buy some H2 blockers at first and later on if problems do not resolve then buy some PPI's OTC. If the condition improves then you've got problems with stomach acid.

      But the best thing to do would be to go for an endoscopy to see if you have Helyco Pylori. You could also get a blood work for H.P. 

      I know that you don't have money but still try to get it somehow to check your condition. Don't panic, you are young and should not have major issues... it is extremly unlikely that you have developed a serious condition.
