    lower Abdominal pain

    I have been suffering from lower pelvic/abdominal pain for the last 5 months; the pain is always on never leaves me a minute. It is felt more when I am sitting at chair at work or when I lay down on the bed, I don't feel it as much when I am walking. Overall it is not server pain and is bearable but never the less it is compromising my quilt of life.
    I don't have any diarrhea or constipation associated with it; my appetite is good and I eat well
    I had seen an internist and we did pelvic / abdominal Ultra sound, everything came back normal. I also did CT scan with contrast on my pelvic/ abdominal area again everything is normal and he said to me it could be stress and that is that.
    Sometime I do experience spasm / bloating and softness of the stool but I can tell that is tied to my diet and stress and it goes ago away once I digested or relieved myself, but the aching pain and the burning sensation is always there it never fluctuate with or without food, with or without going to the bathroom, the pain never leaves
    Please let me know if you have any information that can help
    Thanks

    I done my upper GI endoscopy and colonoscopy , eveything came back normal and the Gastro Doc indicated there is nothing wrong with my digestive system.
    so in total ultra sound of abdominal / pelivic / CT scan of those areas and now endo and colonoscopy, blood work all turned out normal
    i do have anxietry , but does that cause abdominal pain that is constant 24/7 . do you think i have IBS , the pain never leaves and i think people with IBS have some relief in between bouts
