What started out as an occasional dull ache in my lower left intestinal area (just above my left hip bone) is now a daily annoyance. My intestines are very active and at times noisy to the point of embarrassment. My major bowel movemts are always shortly after awakening in the am and the first sitting is always large and firm. Then after 1 cup of coffee, a second summons to the toilet results in a more diarriahe type of output that is much smaller. I have eliminated whole milks, cheeses, beef, pork from diet for several months. Eat primarily raw or cooked vegetables, brown or wild rices, pastas, fish, a little chicken. For the most part very healthy with good energy levels. Take a digestive enzyme and usually eat fat free yogurt for breakfast. Found that yogurt helps my digestion. Have not visited a gastro doc yet. Mother had diverticulitus. Years ago had a liver/gall bladder flush and a colon cleansing with good results. Have not had the ever popular colonoscopy yet.
Any insight to what is causing the dull ache in my intestinal area as described above?
