Dear experts,
I have been facing a long standing pain in the left part of my abdomen. I have gone through many physical checkup but nothing was found. It went on for over 10 years. Finally, i came to realize it's it has a connection with quantity and quality of sleep, stress, mental soundness etc. When i have no stress and sleep well, i don't feel the pain. But when i go through a stressful day and can't sleep well at night, the pain comes back. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Hi - has abdominal migraine ever been considered? The bowel and mesentary are known to be affected by seratonin. Especially with you feeling it more intensely with lack of sleep and stress. Best wishes

    Hi @unclesam, how are you doing? Have you spoken to your GP about your pain?
