For the past five days I have been having lower middle abdominal

This answer was rated:

For the past five days I have been having lower middle abdominal pains. Very sore with burning. When I eat or drink certain things the burning increases. The pain is constant and is at a number 7 on a pain scale of 1 to 10. This morning another symptom has begun. I strain to move my bowels and still just a little comes out. What is most likely my problem and the solution?
