In brief: Numerous
Abdominal pain, distention, lack of passage of stool or gas, nausea, vomitting, fever, loss of appetite.
If in doubt, do not delay in seeking medical attention either at your doctor or the emrgencey room. If confirmed, initial treatment is bowel rest, most reolve but some will require surgical intervention if they dont resolve with bowel rest.

In brief: Vomiting & constipat
Symptoms include repeated nausea and vomiting and absolute constipation ( no stools or flatus passed).
Most of the time you also have progressive distension of the belly with pain. You should see your doctor and never treat bowel obstruction yourself.
