Customer Question

My 43 year old son is complaining of stomach pain stating that he feels he needs to pass gas but can't, and has pain in abdomen. Last small bowel movement was today AM. He feels he is constipated and can't get in any position lying down, sitting up to get comfortable to bear pain in the middle of his abdomen. I gave him two Tums and he took three gulps of spearmint tea. Can you advise what to do.

There are number of causes resulting such symptoms, most common being gastritis and stomach upset. However pancreatitis is the condition which needs to be ruled out to be on safe side. I would recommend you to give him tablet zantac (ranitidine) and psylium husk. Ginger tea and chamomile tea would help a lot. If the pain is severe in intensity and does not improve take him to urgent care for thorough examination and an ultrasound to rule out pancreatitis.

Hope this helps.
