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.
It is very difficult to say what the exact cause may be. It could be due to a peptic ulcer disease, constipation, diverticulits, 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.
