I'm having pain on my left side just above my hip. It's more on my actual side, than on the front of my stomach. I noticed it because it really hurts to touch it. If I press on it, it is really sore. It is also very uncomfortable to try to lay on my left side. If I'm not pressing, it is more a slight discomfort than acutal pain. I have IBS, and am also having a lot of gurgling, bloating, and gas too. I feel just really slow and tired, and just blah. I'm not running a fever. Could this left side pain, be related to my IBS? I'm not thinking kidneys because it's not really around the back, and I'm not having trouble urinating, and it's not a sharp pain (unless I'm pressing). I'm scared it could be diverticulitis. A friend of mine had it years ago really bad, and it landed him in the hospital for over a week. Any idea what this could be? I'm trying to keep my anxiety at bay, and not start panicking about this, but it started yesterday morning and now that I'm on day 2 of it, I'm starting to get really scared.
