Patient : I have had 4 or 5 shooting pains in my lower left side of my abdomen and then it goes away. Only started today but I have also had some tenderness in my abdomen due to what i believe is overworked bowels (I started the Slim fast, cutting calorie diet). I didn't know if that could just be my diet talking to me or an ovary problem. I had my right ovary taken out about 5 years ago and the pain was constant although if the sharp pain that hits me was constant it would be about as painful. So what could this be?
