I am hoping someone can help me as I am at the end of my tether. I have had severe abdominal pain in my lower left side my entire life, to the left of my belly button. I have had every test done possible (so I have been told). I am undiagnosed and I can not cope with the pain any more. I can not walk my dog or go to the shops on most days.
I do not have allergies, wheat, dairy etc. I have tried different diets. My GP insists it must be constipation so we have tried every laxative over the last few years. Nothing helps. (Usually 1 bowel movement a week which I know is less than normal). A member of my family is also a GP and IBS has been suggested. The pain has no pattern and does not correspond with my bowel movements at all.
All signs point to basic constipation but I have been on laxatives for about a month, having a bowel movement every day, and today my pain is so severe I have decided to make this post. If it is constipation then I have been constipated my entire life. The pain is actually not constant, it comes in waves but it is so bad my only escape is sleep, and if I clench my left side hard enough the pain eases but I can’t do this all the time.
I am under the impression that my GP thinks I have created all of this in my head. I saw a new doctor recently, who suggested it may be my ovaries, and I get the blood test results next week.
I have been googling and researching for years and I have no answers.
