For the past four days I have a sporadic pain in my lower left abdomen. At first I thought I might be constipated so I started taking laxatives and upped my yogurt intake. The pain comes and goes. It is rarely ever completely gone. Mostly it is a slight, dull pain but it does occasionally increase to a sharp pain. I wasn't too worried except that today the pain spread to my left testicle and was accompanied by a sharp headache, hot and cold flashes, and light sweating. The headache as since abated, the hot and cold flashes/sweats ended about an hour ago and the pain in my left testicle is quite dull. The pain in my lower left abdomen is still sharp though. About a four on the ten scale. I am a 31 year old male and I have HIV and my spleen was removed when I was 5. I do not have insurance and do not want to spend money I do not have on a doctor I do not need. Should I be worried?
