There are usually many different possibilities, which can be narrowed down by asking the right questions, doing a careful examination, performing simple blood tests+/- radiology tests.

Dr. Said intestinal virus but vomiting constipation and abdomen pain. Any recommendations?

GI Virus: Gastrointestinal viral and bacterial infections can cause symptoms of nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. The mainstay of treatment is essentially bowel rest, meaning little to no food but maintaining water and other fluid intake (broths, ginger ale and mild electrolyte solutions) for the first 24-48 hrs until symptoms improve. From there we typically advance the diet slowly with bland foods. ...Read more

I have constipation and really bad abdomen pain, the pain is releaved once I have spent hours on the toilet in pain.

I have constipation and really bad abdomen pain, the pain is releaved once I have spent hours on the toilet in pain.

Miralax (polyethylene glycol): I recommend drinking lots of water and using miralax, (polyethylene glycol) this type of fiber works with your body and doesn't necessarily force you to use the bathroom but lets you decide when you want to go. Each person has different reactions to fiber and some can cause bloating to some while others to have the same symptoms, so it is important to try a few to see which one works best for you. ...Read more

Can long term use of previcid/prilosec cause digestive issues, lower lft abdomen pain small/narrow stool, constipation, floating stool?

More info needed: Thanks for your question! Prilosec's main mechanism of action is to decrease acid production. Some of the more serious complications include a form of infectious diarrhea, known as C. diff (which is not very subtle). I suspect it's not the medication, but you could always try holding it for a few days and see if it helps your symptoms. Hope you feel better! ...Read more

I have lower abdomen pain it feels like constipation but im regular and it cramps or hurts when I do go to the restroom or walk I am a male history of high blood pressure I smoke and drink regularly 36 yrs old no serious illnesses or surgeries

I have lower abdomen pain it feels like constipation but im regular and it cramps or hurts when I do go to the restroom or walk I am a male history of high blood pressure I smoke and drink regularly 36 yrs old no serious illnesses or surgeries

Need to see doctor: Nobody can diagnose on the basis of just history. Irritable bowel syndrome can cause your symptoms, and that may be both genetically determined and related to stress. Drinking and smoking "regularly" are both bad for you, and may relate to your stress level. Alcohol can cause esophagitis and gastritis which cause abdominal pain. You need to see your physician for an evaluation, including tests. ...Read more

Abdominal pain under xyphoid process, tender to touch left side, nausea, pain worse when hungry relieve with food. Constantly feel full even with out eating. Alternating constipatio diarrhea. Difficulty swallowing. Duration 2 months?

Needs evaluation: The location of pain and relief with food is consistent with peptic acid problems like GERD but could include gastric ulcer or H pylori infection. Constipation alternating with diarrhea is more commonly seen with irritable bowel syndrome but could be dietary or inflammatory bowel disease as well. After exam and possible labs, endoscopy or other imaging studies may be recommended. I wish you well ...Read more

Fecal impaction, constipation, and stool color changes I have been battling w/constipation &/or impaction for years now. The past few weeks I have been having major gas pains when I eat regardless of stool passage. I have had bad lower abdomen pain radiat

You: You may be reading too much into the color of the stool. The dark green color may have been from something you ate or from a vitamin or medication you ingested. You did not mention if you are under the care of a gastroenterologist, or what studies or medications have been tried. Therefore, my first thought is for you to see your doctor right away for the worsening pain. You will need an endoscopy and colonoscopy if not already done. If you are not on probiotics, that would be a good place to start; in addition daily MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) to help with the constipation. Also considering seing a nutritionist for a diet plan that will help decrease gas and promote regular bowel movements.
All the best. ...Read more

Hi I have pain in right side lower abdomen. Pain is NOT constant n keeps moving. I have lots of stress n im constipated for weeks Cud this b the reason?

Constipation causes!: The main causes of constipation are dietary. You say you have been this way for weeks. Sit down and write out what you have been eating for the past few weeks. Eliminate those foods known to cause constipation such as rice, barley, oatmeal, milk. You can use enemas too. If all of this doesn't help see your doc. ...Read more
