Needs emergency care: Pain as serious as you describe needs emergency evaluation and care. You're right, it may just be gas...But it could be something of quite a bit more concern. Take her to the er for assessment and treatment now please.

To doctor: She has severe low abdominal pain and could be a number of things besides constipation. It would not be correct for me to do anything but suggest she go in.

Get her checked.: If pain is so severe as to make her double over, it truly could be something serious. We have all seen people nearly incapacitated by simple gas pains. Muscle spasms in the pelvic floor can be equally distressing. But trust your instincts here. She does need to be seen. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, blood in stool, vaginal bleeding, tarry black stools are other warnings. But severe pain is plenty!
