I've had chronic left side abdominal pain/constipation for the past 5 years. It used to be triggered by greasy foods, so I completely cut out all fast foods. By doing this I might hv pain once or 2x a month. As far as constipation, I might go every 3-5 days. Lately I've noticed the left side by is more frequent, maybe 3x a week. The pain is sharp and sudden. Sometimes it gets so bad that I vomit from the pain. It lasts for hours, sometimes it'll stop if I finally use the bathroom which is hours later other times I still dont go. I've gotten a colonoscopy done in March and it came back normal. The dr told me there's nothing she can do bc it was normal. :-} I've gotten a CT done and that was normal. I don't know what else to do or what is causing the pain. Several ppl (friends) said it could be my gall bladder but I have no idea. I don't know what else to do!!!View Thread
