Abdominal pain: Persistent abdominal discomfort, especially if associated tenderness, distension, nausea or vomiting is present, should be examined by a physician. Don't take a laxative, but if simple constipation is present, insert a rectal dulcolax suppository or a gentle fleets enema. If symptoms persist and you're not sure you're constipated, get examined promptly in the hospital emergency room.
