Hi, I am a 29 year old female.
For year now, I have been have pain in my lower left abdominal area. To be more precise, it is to the lower left of my belly button. The pain is constant and sometimes throbbing.
I have done many tests already to find out what could be causing the pain. I have done a CT scan, a colonoscopy and a endoscopy, to which all results came back as saying nothing is wrong and that I am fine.
The problem is that I am not fine. I have pains basically everyday. The last doctor said that I have IBS. So about 2 weeks ago, I started this diet called the FODMAPS diet which is supposed to limit certains types of sugars and other things.
Well, since I started the diet, the pain is still here and its just as bad and maybe even worse sometimes.
I really dont know what to do here, I have done all the tests I needed to do. I dont know if its IBS to be quite honest.
Once a week I fast for the entire day, just drinking water. It helps. So I do believe it had something to do with food.
Also sex with my husband can be painful at certain angles, which I attribute to my stomach pain.
Also, when I do have the pain, the stomach does look a little bloated. Something is definitely going on down there.
Can anybody help me out?
