At the age of 28 , I woke up one morning with lower abdominal pain. I thought I needed to urinate. This helped ease the pain. This happened for a few days so my doctor prescribed anti-biotics thinking it was an infection. After that I saw a Urologist 2008-2012 and most recently I went to see a Gastrologist after doing all tests imaginable nothing was found. At first my pain occurred only when I lay down for a few hours and woke me from my sleep, if I was standing for a few minutes it went away. Now when I wake in the morning it takes a few hours for it to clear. Ibuprofen 400mg increases the time it takes the pain to start when lying down. When is started i got 7hrs sleep now 3hrs. Getting up moving around helps to relieve the pain. I am now 37, I have not had a good night sleep in 11 years and always have a migraine. The pain is left/right lower abdomen 1 inch below belly button not in the centre. Pressing the area increases the pain.

Please help me.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
I read your question and I understand your concern.
This seem to be due to functional bowel disorder.
I would suggest you have urinalysis, abdominal/pelvic ultrasound to rule out organic cause.
Start mebeverine to resolve this issue. I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
