Hi, I really need someone’s opinion I’m afraid it’s something bad. It’s been few weeks I keep getting really bad pain on the lower left side of my stomach the pain keeps coming and going. Plus I get a really bad burning sensation in the area a feeling like I’m on fire and this whole pain and feeling effects my lower back where I have sciatica and the pain and feeling to my back it’s like double the pain for me. Last night I had ibuprofen and gabapentin I feel so much better but I’m still having some pain and burning sensation in the lower left side of my stomach. I’m also having nausea with not much of appetite. When ever I have no appetite it comes out being infection related. I’m afraid it’s something bad, I’m wondering what do you think this is? Please let me know more soon.

Hello Melissa

Thank you for writing.

The organs in the left side of the abdomen are part of your small and large intestine, your left ovary and fallopian tube and part of your rectum.

We cannot say what we think it is - even if you called your doctor, he/she would say the same thing. You need to be examined to know more. Tell your doctor (whichever doctor you go to) what you told us.

Thanks for letting me know. My worry is I keep thinking it’s something called diverticulitis. I just needed someone’s opinion here but I will talk to my doctor by next week. Since I see relief I keep thinking it’s not something serious. My situation is very mix but I am in the right care but I’m worried over this pain I get.
