The cause is unclear

I hurt so bad I don't even know WHY I hurt. Is it the endometriosis making me feel bloated and like I'm having moderate contractions, or is it my gut and it's GI related? I feel nauseous, stomach is on knots and cramping, low back pain expecially when I sit on the toilet, and I'm on day 11 of my nuvaring. But I also haven't pooped since Saturday and am having trouble passing gas so I don't know what's going on. I had an OBGYN appointment last week and we've scheduled my surgery. I have a family practice appt on June 2nd, and GI can't get me in till freaking August! Ugh I'm hurting and I can't figure out why. I just want to know why. There. Done venting.

Cassi, I have IBS-C and when I get extremely constipated, or my stool isn't moving through my system, I have cramps and low back pain. I use a BabyLax enema. It has just enough liquid in it to help get things started, and I usually feel much better within a few hours.

But that may not be your problem. Have you ever had an intestinal blockage before? It can be terrible pain, and can be serious. You probably need to call one of your docs; GI or GYN. Sending hugs & saying prayer you will feel better soon! 🙂💕🙏🌼
