Go to doctor: It might be as simple as constipation that is causing your symptoms, but how do you know that is nothing serious? There are plenty of conditions that can cause abdominal pain and bloating that if left untreated can cause death or serious complications. Go get it checked.

Is it serious?: As an emergency physician, we take complaints of abdominal pain seriously. Are you pregnant?I severe pain to doctor. However, you sound as though you might be constipated with gas. Try simethicone (gas-x), and if your bowel movements are hard or.Not happening, increase your water intake to 8 eight glasses per day. A mild laxative over the counter.See your doc.
