I was experiencing pain in my lower abdomen intestinal area


Q: I was experiencing pain in my lower abdomen intestinal area specifically in the upper left side more toward the middle of my abdomen. I was constipated and was having trouble urinating as well. I was prescribed cipro and after a couple days had a grayish substance come out when I moved my bowels and when I urinated. After this I was able to return to regular bathroom habits. I haven't been told by my doctor what causes this and it is the second time I have had this occur in about 4 months. What could be the cause of this and what can I do to try to prevent this from happening again? Thank you
