How can I tell the difference between gas/constipation pain vs something else.
I have had almost constant achiness bordering on pain underneath my belly since just before the funeral I went to yesterday. I have lots of gas but the pain is different than where I usually feel it (I usually feel it along the sicks of the belly, this is underneath). I also have heartburn. But, I have a very dull lower back pain (although I have always had it on and off).
I am sure you are all sick of hearing about my bowel trouble, but after a second round of laxatives, I had a BM yesterday before the pain started so it shouldn't be constipation.
I called our local nursing health line and they always tell you to go into L&D but I don't want to go in for someone to tell me that I have gas.
I am leaning towards them being gas pains but when do I worry?
