Customer Question

I have been having lower abdominal pain, and bloating, with cramps. The sensation comes and goes, but the bloating is fairly consistant. Last week it was very bad, and the pain reminded me of the feeling I had with diverticulitis.

Thanks for providing more information .
Well as you describe you need to be seen by your regular doctor for a clinical examination and undergo Ultrasound Whole abdomen , Liver function test , colonoscopy to rule out underlying possible cause which may include Irritable bowel syndrome , Indigestion , Diverticulitis , Renal calculi .
Well as you are suffering from last few weeks with no relief so you should make an appointment with your doctor for further evaluation and management .
In the meantime you can try OTC Simethicone , Metamucil , Motrin .
Drink plenty of fluids and eat bland diet .
I hope this helps.
