Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Any problems in past with diverticulosis? Or when infecte it is called diverticulitis .Is discomfort more to left side ? Any nausea ? Any fever? The lower abdominal discomfort could be caused by constipation and may be a familiar problem.Only 2 days since last BM would not seem so certain to be due to constipation. You may try an enema ..yes ...you could try a few days of Miralax over the counter as usually effective.
Watch for feeling sore to press in the lower abdomen area ...if tender to press then possible cause due to infection would be more of a concern. So I recommend that you consider seeing your doctor for evaluation if you have pain that is severe enough to prevent sleep or fever or nausea . if you take steps for constipation and that helps then that would be fine.
I hope that this is helpful for you.Let me know if you have further questions.I will be happy to get back with you.If my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback.Thank you and Best Regards,
