: Greetings: I have an annoying little ache in my lower left abdominal area that goes away and comes back regularly but has been going on for over a year now. I don't have much faith in doctors as I've been to two; one prescribed beladonna and the other told me to watch my diet, which I find kind of odd as I'm a vegetarian. I'm the epitome of health except for this little annoying pain.

: If you've been there, done that, I'd like to hear from you.

: Thanks

Hi Bob,
I think you need to take more water soluble fiber like Metamucil supplement.You may think because you're a vegetarian that you get enough bulk and fiber in your diet but all fiber is not the same.Some is not very soluble and some is extremely soluble.It is sure worth a try.YOU can get psyllium capsules in most health food stores if you like and work up to 4 a day.When you first start, you may have gas for a while --then it will go away.
God Bless---Harry
