lower left abdominal pain

Posted by @JakobMariok, Jan 1, 2016

Alright, I don’t even know how to start this since this pain has been going on for so long. I’ve started to give this pain so much attention that everytime I start running, I feel like i’m dieing.
I’m a 17 year old male, good shape, that doesn’t exercise that much overall. I’m 5’7 120 lbs.
The pain starts one minute into any cardio exercise that includes jumping or bouncing (such as RUNNING, or jumping jacks) The pain feels like someone stabbed me with a foreign object in the lower left abdominal section, to the right of my left hipbone
I would like to say that i’m constipated aswell. (been 3 months ish)
When I go swimming, this pain doesn’t occure as much
It’s mostly on the left side, almost never on the right side.
Pain feels like organs bouncing up and down, causing the pain, im starting to lose hope, really.
I went to see doctors, but they said I have nothing, so i’m LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM!
thank you, happy new year 🙂

Sometimes finding a diagnosis can be a long journey. Have you been given anything to help relieve the constipation or tests to find the underlying cause?

I hope the doctors can help you find something. Have you had the pain while at an appointment or does it only happen with physical exercise?

hey, sorry for the late reply. I already got my appendix removed 2 years ago.

pain was always in the lower left part of my abdomen, but in the past it happended even after a meal. Now it only happens if I walk or run or jump.

ive realised that pain doesnt occure when my stomach is empty

Do you think it could be a digestive related issue? Have you at least been given anything to help relieve the constipation or tests to find the underlying cause?

Find a good Gastroenterologist and see if they can run tests on your GI tract. Also get your gall bladder checked out. In addition, make sure you don’t have something that is happening as a result of the appendectomy such as scar tissue or a blockage. Find a good GI doc. So sorry you have all this pain.
