Hello, I've been having a lot of discomfort in my left lower abdomen for the last three or four weeks. It's mostly a dull pain during the day, but at night it seems worse and makes it difficult to sleep. Occasionally that side of my abdomen also itches and feels swollen, and sometimes there is sharp pain near my navel or a feeling of fluid moving there.
I've been to a doctor several times. He has found nothing physically wrong and says it might be stress-related. He gave me some painkillers and told me to return in a few weeks if it hasn't improved. It hasn't, so I guess I'm going to have to see the doctor again. First, though, I'd like some more opinions.
