Sometimes it wakes me up out of my sleep and I experience mild cramps also. I have never had these pains before. Does anyone know what this could possibly be? ( I am 28 years old if that is of any help)

First off, would see either your Primary care doctor or your OB/GYN! I can tell you that I used to get the same thing, and my problem was endometriosis . BUT... that doesn't mean that this is what is going on with you. The thing is that the pain you describe could be any of a number of things so to find out for sure and to ease your mind, go to a doctor and tell them what you told us here and he or she will find out what is going on with you. I wish you luck and hope you feel better soon!

Want to be clear. You tagged pregnancy. If you are pregnant it would depend where you are in the pregnancy. There is something called Braxton-Hicks which is later in pregnancy and is a stretching of the uterus and strengthens of that muscle to prepare you for delivery. If it gets strong your need to see your OB ASAPA to prevent premature labor. Generally a trip to the ER if office is closed.
Otherwise, a number of things can be going on including a UTI and other events. See your doctor soon so you can be sure everything is normal.

I had the exact same thing happen to me and went to the ER. An hour after getting there, I was in the O.R. Having my appendix out. Don't want to scare you but you need to get this checked out ASAP. If it is your appendix and you wait to long they can burst, not something you want to happen. It's been to be safe then sorry. Good luck and I hope all turns out ok.

One other thing you might want to check into is interstitial cystitis. Although it doesn't necessarily cause pain only at night, you might only notice it at night. It also causes urgency in urination, and you think that you have chronic urinary tract infections. If those symptoms don't apply, then toss the answer :-)

Im getting the same thing Sophia84, I get the mild cramps more towards night time, but a few times during the day, and its not all the time either, its on and off. But at night is when I feel the pain in my abdomen on my far left side and in the same area on my lower back. It almost feels like if someone is poking you really hard. Best way I can describe it. Let me know if thats how you felt too
