Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,you should initially try OTC Zantac,Mylanta gas and metamucil.

Also hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids and eat a fiber rich diet.

If your symptoms'll persist then you should try Colace.

As your abdominal pain is associated with Intestinal excessive gas production.
