Hi Dr. Kokil,

Thank you so much for your reply.

Lately, I only feel the pain (lower left abdomen & both side of my lower back(below the waist close to the middle)) when I bend forward. My waist at the back seems okay these few days. Just need a peaceful mind;

1. Do you think it'll resolve by it self? If yes, how long do you think it'll take? I really miss my Yoga class which I've stopped for almost 6 months (sigh...)

2. Can I wait & see whether it'll resolve by itself or should I visit my doctor.

Any other advice is highly appreciated.

Once again, thank you so much for your help!

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Please consult a doctor. You need to rule out nerve impingement as pain comes on bending forward. It is unlikely it will resolve on its own as it has been going on for 3 months. It can also be any other possibilities such as kidney stone or ovarian cysts. Take care!
