Six months ago, for the first time I encountered pain from bloating and constipation. It freaked me out, the pain wasn't localized at the time (It was my entire abdomen in pain). At the time, I rushed to the ER - thinking I might have appendicitis. The doctors did an ultra sound and blood test, but everything came back negative. I was told to increase my fiber intake. It didn't work instead I started belching alot like a mad man. but the pain went away after a few weeks (may be from drinking lots of water - not sure) and all was normal.
Anyway, two months ago, the constipation came back, and this time it became more localized just underneath my rib cage on the extreme right of my abdomen. I tried changing my diet, lost 40 pounds by excercising, increased my water intake; although, things got a little better, it has gotten worse since last week. This time, the constipation has now combined with a sore burning pain.
The pain has now localized from just underneath my rib cage along the right side of my abdomen to the top of my waist. I am too scared to eat cos the pain gets worse after eating. The pain feels as if something is literary eating up my intestine. Afterwards, I get bloated, I feel I should pass stool to releave the pain. When I pass stool, the stool is very little and smells really bad. Although, I get a little less bloated after passing stool, the sore burning pain remains. It gets worse when I lie down. Pls, help.
O.k no response. Ok, it appeared that I was having a serious case of Bowel blockage over a long period as advised by my good old friend. He suggested that I chug down 2 x 2 liter bottles of sprite. Oh boy, was he right. The abdominal pain did increased sharply after drinking 4 liters of liquid, but I soon began to pass a lot of gas. I also felt like vomiting, but was advised not to.
Then 4 hours later, just like that, the blockage in my bowel popped loose as I could vividly hear 4 liters of Sprite passing through the bowels as if I was gonna have diarrhea...cool!...instant relief...now I can sleep, but I was not out of the woods yet. I had to suddenly wake up and take the biggest sh!!!t of my life-it was big, hard and wet at the end (I guess the sprite did it's job, and had to come out). I never thought that one day I'll just be very happy to take a sh!!!t. Made me wonder how so much stool could have remained in my body for so long. Now, how the hell did I get this problem in the first place? And why does it keep comming and going?
