  • Stool samples and blood tests alone cannot rule out all types of intestinal problems. You need to have a colonscopy. You could have anything from IBD to Diverticulas. Actually diverticula is a common cause of constipation. It usually causes pain in the lower left part of the abdomen as where IBD (Chron's) usually causes pain on the right side. Ask for more tests. Hope this helps... Kiera
