For the past 10 days i have had a dull aching pain in my lower left abdomen. It seems to get worse after ive eaten, the past two days i have started to feel the same pain in my back aswell. I feel constanly tired and drained, and i feel like i just want to close my eyes and sleep. I went to the doctors they took a few tests, i have no urinary infections and im not pregnant. The doctor prescribed me with buscopan, which doesn't improve my symptoms at all. I'm finding it hard to deal with this now, but the doctor said come back in a week if the pain is still there. Any idea?

Thanks for using this forum...

Lower left abdomen pain with some back pain can be due to colitis which is inflammation of bowels or renal stone,constipation,muscle spasm,disc pain radiation,etc.

You should get some tests regarding your blood counts and get a sonography done to rule out the possibilities.

take care....
