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.

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.
