pain in abdomen

Mar 30, 2016 3:48 AM

so I've noticed I've been feeling crampy off and on for the past few days. Today it's been really uncomfortable and I have no idea what it is.

I've had problems with constipation since I was born so, maybe that's it? Who even knows, my body sucks lol.

Research IBS, IBS-C, and IBS-D. Think about what you've eaten lately. Chart your diet and trying issues to identify any problems or connections.

I hope you feel better soon. Oh, as more water intake for the constipation. Hugs & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌼

If it's higher up, near your sternum or even higher, it could be GERD. But lower down could ibs, or diverticulitis. Definitely track your food and symptoms, and show doc asap.

It's below my ribs and between my pelvic bones. You know, where period cramps happen? Right there.

I have a regular period so, it's not period cramping. I feel it after I eat and even when I don't eat. It's a new thing for me, just started last weekend.

To my knowledge, I don't have IBS. I've always had problems with constipation and occasional diarrhea but I don't really think it's related...? I was planning on making an appointment with my doctor today, so I should go do that lol. I wonder if the fact that I have widespread laxity has anything to do with it.
