| | question about random sharp pain in lower abdomen
My name is Jason and I have a question about pain I feel in my lower abdomen that is random and lasts from just several seconds to a few minutes. I am 30 yrs old and have been feeling this since I was a pre-teen. The pain is very sharp and it is just above my penis. I have read as much as I can to get answers but not sure if it is kidney stones or what. I can say I don't have any kind of discomfort when I urinate or red, pink etc urine, much as I have read about here. Sometimes I can go a month or more and not feel any pain. Sometimes I will feel the pain a few times a week. It usually doesn't last long but it is very sharp and if I am around people when it happens it is impossible for me to hide it from people w/o gritting my teeth or something like that. I guess part of the reason I have never seen a doctor is fear of what he will find out. I have heard horror stories about passing stones, even though I don't know if that is it.
Another worry is when I was very young I had to have surgery as I had one testicle that had to be surgically lowered w/in my body. I know there is a better way to describe it but I only had one testicle below my penis and the other one was somehow higher up in my body. So I used to wonder if that contributed to it as the pain is just above my penis. If anyone knows anything about this and can offer some insight it would be greatly appreciated. I know I need to see a doctor and I will. But I really would like some insight so I know exactly what kind of doctor I need to see. Thanks again in advance for any replies.
