For the past 3 days I've had gas, bloating and pain in my lower back and stomach. I've tried a few medications to no avail. Any suggestions?

Gas/constipation: This could be from constipation. Are you staying well hydrated? Be sure to eat slowly - it takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to catch up to your satiety level. Be careful about gas-inducing foods (such as beans, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, prunes, apricots, sweeteners, dairy, whole grains). If you've already tried a bunch of OTC medicines, it is best to see your doctor. Best wishes!

46 Conditions: This complaint can possibly be associated with up to 46 different conditions. Therefore it would need to be thoroughly worked up by your primary physician and if preliminary workup is negative then he would probably consult with a gastroenterologist. The workup could be from days to weeks to sort out. Make an appointment with your doctor and be ready to provide as much detail as possible.

What could cause me to have gas, bloating, stomach aches, and constipation?

What could cause me to have gas, bloating, stomach aches, and constipation?

Possibly: Excess fiber and not enough fluids. Remember, anything with caffeine or alcohol dehydrates and therefore creates an imbalance of fiber and fluids. Drink 80-100 ounces caffeine free/alcohol free fluid daily and eat a high fiber diet. If you are eating properly you do not need fiber supplements as this may cause an excess fiber and can lead to gas pains, cramping and constipation.
