Painful Lower Abdominal Cramping: what could be the causes?

Patient: What could be the cause of intense lower abdominal cramping? I’m having normal bowel movements with increased pain. Unomfortable cramping after; not constipated no loose stools. Pain begins after eating a few bites of food within 30 minutes. 45 minutes after BM pain has not subsided.

 

 

Doctor: It is very difficult to say what the exact cause may be. It could be due to a peptic ulcer disease, constipation, divert iculits, Chrons or ulcerative colitis, urinary tract infection or IBS among a few. These are non specific symptoms and need to be analysed further. Please consult a physician in person for a detailed physical examination along with some tests like an abdominal ultrasound . All the best.
