Question: Pain in lower left stomache when move

 baihu88 - Tue Sep 14, 2004 6:49 pm

My mom has had pain in her lower left stomache for a week and almost alway onset when she has body movement. It first came while she was having physical therapy session (post-strok). The pain was usually short and ok if no movement or drinking warm water. She has had poor appetite so far. No vomitting or diahrea is noticed. She had some constipation before and always resolve with Colace or plune juce and recently she had BM after taking those, but not as much as she did in the past. She said she almost felt like the intestine is twisted because of the PT execersice. Any idea what this is? Thanks so much for your help!

It would be difficult to pin-point a cause for your description without proper examination of the patient.
