I've been having this lower abdomen pain for a little over a week now (10 days to be exact). The pain is just there constantly, 24/7. I can describe the pain as dull, persistent, pressuring, etc. On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being extremely painful), I'd put it at around a 5-6. It is NOT sharp or burning.

The pain isn't severe to the point where it feels like it's killing me, but it's really uncomfortable and I hate it! It just makes me feel lousy, lazy, etc.

A few other things to note:
-Sometimes I feel like there is a bit of gas going on down there in my intestinal area as I hear it making gassy/bubbly noises and what not
-I don't have any back pain
-I don't have any blood in my stools or urine
-No constipation
-No weight loss, loss of appetite, or fever

I poop about once a day, in the morning. The poop seems fine to me.

Eating a hot meal seems to relieve the pain slightly - JUST SLIGHTLY, although after about an hour or two, the pain comes back.

My only suggestion since the pain is persistant and it hasnt gone away after 10 days is to go see your doctor. There might be something going on that only they can diagnose. Constant pain like that is not normal and I think it would beneficial to just have it seen to.
