I am having what feels like a serious problem. Since last

Customer Question

I am having what feels like a serious problem. Since last night, my arms, back, chest and neck are very sore and the muscles are very rigid. My stomach is also cramping badly and I am getting bouts of nausea and feeling like I'm going to pass out and getting light headed. I have been constipated for about a week or so with only small bowel movements. I feel very ill and not sure what is happening to me.
