Lower Abdominal Pains
Posted 08 November 2007 - 02:19 AM
Then it would come on from a simple walk around the block.
Then it came on from just housework! I'd get the pain, increasing from mild period cramps to severe period cramps that wrap around my back, make me sweat and feel nauseous. I rest, and it goes away.
Now I feel it, even when sitting still, or walking around school.
I am peri-menopausal, get a period once or twice a year. I have no colon so it's not that.
I've had CAT scans of the abdomen by my GI doctor, sonogram by my GYN. They see nothing wrong, except a small hernia on the mid-line but in the upper abdomen.
Could this be sclero related? Any suggestions? I've had three heart attacks, due to sclero related artery problems and NEED to get to cardiac rehab, but this is becoming debilitating!

I'm so sorry you're having such pain. It does seem very focused. I would continue to pursue working with your doctors until they find the source of the pain. Please don't let them blow you off, because this it debilitating for you. I have not suggestions other than to continue to get help through your doctors. I hope you find out why and can solve it very soon!

I am sorry for your pain. I am no health expert by any means but appendix came to my mind. I certainly could be waaaaaaaay off but it was just my thought.
Take care and keep on with those doctors!

I am waaaaaaaaay off. Off to the right! (Normal for me to be out in left field)
Sorry, but I just looked it up and our appendix is on our right not our left side.
Hope you find the cause and some relief soon!
(and don't listen to me anymore)

I've had that happen quite often too. I've asked about it also, but there doesn't seem to be an answer, in their minds:huh:
I've had fibrocystic ovaries for over twenty years and to me, there seems to be a correlation, though. The reason I say that is because the pain seems to be waning, the closer I am to being to the end of the "Big M".
I hope it can be figured out so you don't have to continue with the pain on those occasions.
