I've had bad pain in the left side of my

Patient

Q: I've had bad pain in the left side of my abdomen for over a month now. The pain fluctuates in intensity, it's usually mild but can get severe instantly. I don't have to move for it to hurt, but it can get worse if I do. I noticed it the day after my menstrual cycle ended and it lasted a few days, then came back 3 days into my next cycle (which was 2 weeks ago) and hasn't gone away since. I went to a doctor last month month, they ruled out kidney stones and bladder infections and said they'd do a cat scan if the pain persisted, but I don't have that kind of money.
