Customer Question

Hello sir or mam, I am a 16 year old male and i have been experiencing some stomach pains that won't go away. For the last three consecutive days i have thought it was constipation, so i took many stool softeners and pills that make you poop. But each time i have seen no results, i constantly have to find ways to relieve gas for a short few second relief then the pain is back. It is uncomfortable to stand up or do any kind of physical activity. I was hoping that you might have some answer for this mysterious belly ace

I am sorry you are having abdominal pains.

you could be having bowel allergies or bowel sensitivity to foods like milk lactose sugar or milk casein protein which can cause distention and bloating and bowel pains

gluten allergy or sensitivity to gluten wheat protein in breads, pastas can cause bloating and diarrhea.

you really need to see a GP doctor to get your abdominal symptoms evaluated.

you may need to keep a food diary or food log of what foods cause worse symptoms for you.

you may need to get your stools checked for blood.

can your parents bring you to see a GP doctor?

when was the last time you saw a doctor for an exam?
