hi im 34 and for the last year ive had abdominal pain. the pain is constant and some times it gets worse, it feels like someone is trying to rip my insides out. ive had explority surgery in jan and was told that there was nothing found and that they put a coil in ! the coil hasnt made any difference but my gp says to get it a bit longer to work. last night i ended up at my local hospital with the pains but was sent home again after being told to take more pain killers. i cant keep going like this so is there anyone out there who is/has been in the same situation and can give me some advice

  • Can you give a specific area that hurts, or is it general? Does it come at specific times/ occasions (eating, before eating, stress)?

  • Can you give a specific area that hurts, or is it general? Does it come at specific times/ occasions (eating, before eating, stress)? hi in answer to your questions, the pain is in my lower abdomen around my pelvic area and is constant but sometimes it get worse and radiates towards my hips. as for specific times eating or being hungry makes no difference and im always stressed as ive had no answers for almost a year now, being in pain with no answer for so long as led to depression and anxiety attacks so any ideas are welcome thanks

  • I would consider a bladder issue, as that is the location you describe. Drinking too much stretches it, or a growth there may cause problems. (so if you drink much fluid you may lead toward that, or if you have been having unexplained weight loss, weak, fevers, think the latter.)If you think it can be colon (bowel) related, I would suggest a colon cleanse (I have much first and second hand experience with it) which should clear out and heal whatever may be causing it.Do you have an issue with constipation, moving bowels less than 2 times a day, frequent urination, painful or incomplete urination?
