I am a 65 year old post menopausal female. I have had this strange stabbing pain, on the left side of my abdomen.. It lasts 5-10 seconds and then goes away... It comes back in 30-40 seconds and repeats the sharp pain... This pattern has repeated all day long. My bowels are working just fine. I have been drinking plenty of water. My appetite is unchanged. I have mild hypertension controlled by 25 mg. Losartan, once per day...The only chronic illness that I have is chronic clinical depression... It is fully controlled by Cymbalta 60 mg. once a day... Wellbutrin 100 mg. Twice a day. I also take Fish Oil 1000 mg. twice a day. AND the Losartan once per day. I have no other chronic illnesses. In 2009 I had laproscopic hiatal hernia repair... Had 4 units of blood and many days of IV fluid therapy... I was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia... Which is now controlled as well..... I am allergic to Amoxicillian in high doses.... Had my appendix out at age 18, and tonsils out at age 19. Had a normal pregnancy at age 35, with birth of a normal daughter. Had several broken ribs over the years, from falls, and a car accident. I am a retired nurse, and do not yet have Medicare... I do not want to go to the Doc unnecessarily.... THANKS for your help... Carol
