Lower Abdominal pain

I am a male, 31 years and fairly healthy. Over the last couple of months, I've been experiencing pain in the lower abdomin. The pain eases after I eat or drink lots of water. When I am hungry again the pain starts to increase. The pain is sharp and on one spot.

Could you please provide more information and what you think I should do next.

Many Thanks

Dear 12bhealty – this sounds very suspicious of a peptic ulcer. You can get a peptic ulcer in the stomach and also in the first part of the small bowel. Please let your GP check for you and prescribe an acid inhibitor. Mucaine will give short term relief.
