1. Can you palmate the area of your pain? If so, is it tender to touch? If so, then follow below:
I am not clear as to where exactly your pain is in the left lower quadrant. Nevertheless, I would pursue the hernia question. Try dynamic Ultrasound of the groin and left lower quadrant first. If negative, follow up with MRI pelvis with Valsalva (see other posts for details). If still negative, make sure the films are being read correctly by seeing a hernia specialist.
If the pain is not from a hernia, then it should be from T11-L2 depending on where it is exactly where your pain is.
Read earlier posts and see if you relate to the symptoms listed for occult hernias. If do, then don’t give up til you find someone who can cure you.
