My father is having extreme pain in his lower left front area basically between his hip bone and his "man zone" to say it politely... the pain comes and goes in spells and the area is sensitive to the touch. The extreme pain lasts 5 to 10 minutes then subsides for around 20 to 30 minutes before returning. He continues to move positions trying to find comfort but that is short lived as well when he finds it. Its been going on for approximately 4 hrs and continues to get worse... any suggestions or thoughts before i drive him to the E.R. which he does not want to go but i may force him... quick responses would be appreciated thank you!

Could also be bladder muscle spasms, but definitely get him checked out. I have had some of those and they do hurt pretty bad and it is scary, but easily fixable. He could need some antibiotics and muscle relaxers temporarily to clear it up. Not sure how old a man your dad is, but if he has benign prostate hyperplasia, he may have gotten an UTI, that traveled upward to the bladder and then the muscles just spasm. And it can be a sharp intense pain. Will ya update us, we care around here. Patti

Thank all of you for the responses and the caring nature! My dad doesn't deal with pain well at all but I took him and it turned out to be diverticulitis... forgive me if I spelled that wrong. Very treatable and not to serious praise the lord but I'm glad I took him considerong it could have been worse and he is much better now! He was given some meds and got a few days off work to recover which he needs and deserves! Thanks again all your responses they were appreciated and all very possible canidates as well! Glad there is a community like this and hopefully ill ones day be able to provide help to someone with my own experiences or advice which I definetely will do. Thanks again and thank the lord it wasn't something more serious he id doing very well now!
