SEVERE stomach pain - constipation
For the past few months, I have been having episodes of unbearable pain in the lower stomach area which extends all the way around my lower back. The pain was so bad last night I had to take a vicodin to fall asleep. It lasted the better part of yesterday, into the night. Today I still have a little pain, but nothing bad. This has happened to me about 8 times so far - with a week or two between episodes. I've also be alternating between diareah and constipation. Also, I feel like I have to pass wind, but can't, but have been sending up some very loud belches.
I am not one who likes to run to the doctor, and I am going to start a fiber supplement. Has this happened to anyone? and what was the outcome.
