For the past several months I've been experiecing mild but increasing pain on the left side of my abdomen. I donate plasma and each time I do it seems to trigger this pain. My last donation (Wednesday, Oct 15th) was the first time I had donated in months and triggered this pain in a much more severe manner than any previous encounter. It radiates roughly 4 inches due left of my belly button. It's painful to touch and sharply radiates pain when I bend over. I've also been experiencing extreme gas. No fever, discolored stool, rectal bleeding, or naseau. It feels almost like a muscle tear/rip. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
