I have lower abdominal pain that feels like gas, the symtoms

Resolved Question:

I have lower abdominal pain that feels like gas, the symtoms have lasted for three days. The pain is sometimes severe causing me to almost buckle over then will subside to less painful. Do you think this is just gas hanging around or somthing else. Also I have taken a dose of gas-x that did not help.

well pain that is hard enough to buckle over .. is less likely from gas esp when you are having bowel movements. the pain could be from stomach/ duodenal ulcers, pancreatitis, diverticulitis, bowel ischemia or infection. if this has been hanging arround for 3 days you need to seek medical attention for examination/ testing like xray or CT.
