With symptoms of been bloated and discomfort.
I'm sorry you are feeling poorly BUT...
No drug should be taken for pain in the abdomen without knowing what is wrong.
Pain is a beautiful function of the body...
I know (chronic pain sufferers... I'm sorry)
But think of what would happen if we didn't have a response to pain. We wouldn't know if we were burning our hand on the stove, etc.
The abdomen,especially, should not have pain unless there is something wrong.
If you are constipated, the transmission to the brain tells you to be careful. Your brain remembers that signal from past experiences and says "I'm constipated". It's familiar.
However, if something is hurting and new to you and not going away, you need to be concerned. If it's constipation or diarrhea, it could lead to diverticulosis and then to Irritable bowel and then to diverticulitis and then to Fistulas and then to perforated bowel and then to septicemia and then to death. Ok, I'm being dramatic... Lol.
So... don't take any pain, that does not go away, lightly. Ignoring one of the diagnoses above will put you into the next set of problems with potential serious consequences.
Now... If you think it's gut related and constipated, take a stool softener/laxative, increase fluid intake and add fiber to your diet.
If it's upper abdominal,like your stomach try Maalox/Zantac.
If it's lower abdominal, like urinary you should drink cranberry juice until you can see your doctor for a culture.
Do you have a fever? If so, even more reason to see a doctor. When did you first notice it ? Nausea or vomiting?
Have you been around anyone else that has been sick?
Are you afraid? Another function of our body in response to pain is knowing something really IS wrong.
Please go to the ER if you think it can't wait until you can see your doctor.
Ping; I agree everything that Wind; has said, Really you should try and get into the doctor and see what is going on. It is really hard to just pull something out of the hat without knowing what is going on. But in the meantime you just might stop by the pharmacy and ask to talk to the Pharmacist, He or she should be able to find something for you to help until you can get into the doctor. Chuck1957
