I have been having very painful spasims of pain in my lower left abdomen with a strong urge to urinate urination is not painful I am a 55 year old female.


This pain in your lower left abdomen is associated with a strong urge to urinate, you said. You have also described it as spastic in character.

How long have you had this pain for in total?
Does it goes off and come on, or is it always there?

Is there anything that seems to bring the pain on? What about things that relieves the pain - have you noticed, for example that passing wind or going to the toilet helps take the pain away?

Do you feel bloated?

What about your bowel motions? Are your stool harder than normal for you? Are you passing stools like rabbit pellets? If yes, is there mucus or slime in your stool?

Any recent weight loss or change in your appetite?

The story you offered above is quite brief. Being more detailed and providing answers to the above may help us with perhaps narrowing down the likely cause of this pain in your lower left abdomen with this strong urge to urinate that you described.

Based on what you have provided so far however, it is very likely that you are suffering with:
  • Acute Urinary Tract Infection or
  • Overactive bladder or
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
If symptoms are worsening, obviously, you will need to see your doctor.

I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
