Customer Question
I have extreme pain in...
I have extreme pain in my lower abdomen. It is not UTI as I am able to go without pain. I feel like I have a huge buildup of wind and the pain is like a severe stitch. The pain comes and goes every few minutes or a little longer. I am unable to pass wind and have not been to the bathroom for 3 days. I find it difficult now to walk without pain.

No bowel movement for 3 - 4 days. Unable to pass wind 2 days. Fever - I was hot and cold yersterday and am still experiencing extreme pain.
Doctor: Dr. Amir, Doctor replied 8 years ago
Thanks for your details. I would say that there is a strong possibility of intestinal obstruction in your case which is a medical emergency and there is a risk of intestine rupture or perforation. Don't take any stool softeners or any laxative this may increase the risk of intestinal damage. I will strongly recommend you to visit ER for urgent evaluation and tests such as abdominal scan, x-ray abdomen, complete blood count, ESR, c-reactive protein. Don't waste time and just go to ER. Best wishes.

Do ACCEPT the answer if you find it useful in this way I will be rewarded for my work and time here for you. Clicking accept will not cost you anything.

Best of luck and keep in touch

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
