Hi all,I just wanted to jot down my normal pattern, pain & bm's and also try to show on this picture where I feel the pain;Right, I will go for my 'normal' day which is a working day. Typically I will be up at 6;20 ish, have some toast and leave for work, get to work about 7;45 ish, by say 8 I am usually on the toilet, then by 10 I will have normally have gone again. BM's will be soft, sometimes formed/slightly formed or bitty, on occasions they are loose. I will then have another bm around lunch/mid afternoon and sometimes is the evening, these are typically less in volume and tend to be a bit more formed than the 1st 2 of the day. Now where I feel my pain is on the left side of my abdomen, on the pic it would be in the left hydro region and left lumbar region as shown. The pain is normally right on my side/flank and can go into my back. It can also be felt more on the front. Its a achey, twingy, prickly, burny type pain... Bit of everything! I sometimes feel it being a bit gurgly around that area. The pain can be for a short period of the day (a few hours) or can be on and off all day, or I can have days where I dont really notice it. I did have a few days a couple of weeks ago of all over churning/hunger pains in my tummy but the left sided pain feels different to that and is more common. I can sometimes also get some pain under my belly button if I am having D or tummy is upset.So just wondered if there is anyone who is in a similar situation or if this all sounds 'normal'..Thanks all..
