Customer Question

I have really bad abdominal 'cramps' or pain. I had a full hysterectomy years ago and I thought they said they took my appendix (but I'm not sure). It often feels like I need to have a bowel movement but when I try a very small 'nugget' might pass, otherwise it is mucous and a little bit of air only. This is similar, but much more severe, as a parasite I experienced years ago. It is difficult to walk and sleep.

Since how long are you having these symptoms?

Have you had any tests like a CT scan or colonoscopy?

Do you have any other medical problems?

Are you on any medications for anything currently?

Please let me know.

I think that with your symptoms you must have a CT scan or at the very least an ultrasound of the abdomen to make sure we rule out a number of conditions that can cause such a pain like stones in the urinary tract, appendicitis among other causes.

It could even be a nerve pain due to either diabetes or discs disease in the back but this would come down the list because of the nature of your pain which is crampy.
