Constipation or Something more serious

Oct 10, 2016 2:18 AM

Been in so much pain for 3 days. (10x worse than IBS)Ive tried everything. Thinking I need to go to the ER. But I use the VA hospital & they always make me feel horrible on being there. I think I have either
Diverticula or intestinal blockage (but I did have very very small bowel movement.)
Abdominal pain, cramping, constipation, fevers, weakness, fatigue, sweating, and nausea
The pain isn't being touched by tramadol or muscle relaxer. The pain is left side. It's a really bad bad pain!

Would you go to the ER? I know this is horrible to talk about but I need someone's advice!!!

If it moves over to the right side, it might be the appendix. All the symptomes you describe, reminds me of when my hubbys appendix got inflamed. I would go to the ER!

Er. The may in the end recommend an enema,? Constipation is painful with Any chronic pain syndrome and a balance to control pain and the side effects. Having a bowel issue can only compound it! Go to the ER.

I think the ER is the answer. Please let us know how you are doing and what you find out if you go.

Mzladybug, head to the ER!!! Don't mess with that because you may be working on an infection. Also realize your meds slow your motility so that doesn't help either. I hope they are able to give you relief. Hang in there Hon. {{{Hugs}}}💕
