Last night during the night I kept waking up with pains in my stomach and in my side, feeling like i needed to pass wind badly. I keep going to the bathroom but bowel movements have been minimum. I feel very bloated like i need to be deflated! The pains were quite severe at times but have almost subsided now. I can feel at times some movement of air within my system, I really do feel like I need to pass wind! I felt a few twinges yesterday but it definately got worse through the night. I think it is trapped wind, does anyone have any ideas or advice for me? Thank you.
You mentioned having "minimum" bowel movements... Is it diarrhea? Are you passing any air at all? If your stomach is getting distended (bloated), and you are passing only liquid or pencil thin stool, and not passing wind, it could be possible that you are developing or have developed a bowel obstruction, either partial or full.. also there is the possibility of an ileus (an area of the bowel becomes "paralyzed" for some reason and peristalsis is unable to take place). With these conditions you usually develop nausea and/or vomiting also. I've had both an intestinal obstruction due to scar tissue, and an ileus. With both I became very uncomfortable, with pain, nausea/vomiting, and my stomach was very distended. For the ileus, the docs had me taking milk of magnesia every couple hours until things finally started working again... they also wanted me to have a lot of fluids... Both of these conditions are fairly rare unless you've had some sort of injury or surgery in the area, but the solution could be as simple as trying some milk of mag
Hope you feel better soon!
Hi, it isnt diarrohea, it is small stools almost pellet like. i am pasing some wind and it makes me feel marginally better. I havent eaten anything out of the ordinary in the last few days and i havent experienced this feeling before. I have had trapped wind before but it wasnt this bad. i do feel like i just need to pass a big bit of wind and deflate a bit! any help is appreciated. thank you very much.
