Question: Intense stomach pain

 SeraphisCain - Fri Jun 30, 2006 7:45 pm

For the last few days now, I'd been having some stomach/abdominal pain in varying places. Nothing too severe though. I had, however, been feeling bloated for a few days, even after having a bowel movement (I'm 22 years old and male, by the way). Well, today I laid down for a nap at about 10:30 AM and woke up about 4 hours later with the worst stomach pain I'd ever had. It was slightly below my navel, and would flare up for about 30-40 seconds and then go away for a few minutes, and that cycle went on for about half an hour to forty five minutes. I was also very nauseous. Once the severe pain had stopped I went to the bathroom and forced a bowel movement and I also passed gas once...Now I can still feel discomfort in my abdomen, like small areas of intermittent pain, mostly on the right side, and I'm still a bit nauseous. I'm kinda worried about what could be causing this pain...I've had a lot of stomach pain/problems over the last couple years, and this is the worst pain I've ever had. I'm kinda concerned it might be some kind of bowel obstruction or something else serious.

User avatar Hi SeraphisCain,
I would strongly suggest that you have an evaluation by your physician due to the location of the pain, nausea, etc. Have you been experiencing any fever as well? Again, I would suggest an evaluation.
