Hi Everyone! I don't know if this is the right community but here I go. I been having pain in my upper left side of my abdomen. It doesn't feel like it is a muscle strain. I don't BM regularly but I did today and I am getting the discomfort. I also feel it sometimes when I eat. It is a come and go discomfort. I have gas what I think I have to go. I just a fruit popsicle and my tummy is sore. A little diarrhea.
Should I ask for a colonoscopy? I am only 45 and healthcare doctors locally don't recommend getting one until 50.
