Help! I'm not sure what I'm dealing with here...I've had periods of twinges in my lower left abdominal area with occasional lower back pain and it feels kind of burny...I don't have any other symptoms other than constant stress and worry. These episodes last a few seconds and are an every day occurrence for the past few months. Exercise and relaxing seem to help, but I am wondering what could cause this? Can I have IBS without having the constipation and diarrhea? Or is something else wrong with me. My doctor says that I don't have any "red flag" symptoms, but to get it checked out if the pain continues (which it has). I've had similar pain a few years ago and it went away. I don't want to go through testing unless I have to. Any suggestions?
