See your doctor ASAP: If you have been having these symptoms for more than a week, you should see your doctor right away. You probably need testing to determine if any intestinal blockages or bowel problems are causing your symptoms. If your symptoms worsen, or are associated with any abdominal pain or blood in your stools, you should come to an urgent care center or emergency room immediately.
