Pain in the left side, around the waist area


Posted by Cyhirae

Since yesterday, I've had a sharp and consistent pain in my left side.  My family assumes it is from dehydration and resultant constipation but I always thought that would cause pain throughout the general lower abdomen/torso and not just to one side.

 

Other symptoms:

Nausea and occasional vomitting (very rare and only when the pain is very,very bad)

Constipation (enema helped and the pain eased some as a result but did not entirely withdraw)

Frequent urge to urinate (has begun to back off since the enema)

 

What aggravates the pain:

Sitting

Attempting to use the restroom

 

What helps ease the pain:

Lying on my left side

Stretching to my right

Heating pad to the left side
