I wouldn't call this constipation at this point

If you had diarrhea yesterday I wouldn't expect you to have another bowel movement at least until tomorrow

But there's nothing here to worry about

Please let me know if you need any more information

I seem to have minor tremors and or muscle twitching in my abdomen.
Would this be due to the drinking and can I expect it to pass?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Stomach and sides too

That's due to the drinking and probably from a lack of magnesium so magnesium supplements will help with that

It should pass in another day

I have been taking magnesium capsules.
I haven't been sleeping much also.
I've read it can take 5-7 days for withdrawal symptoms to wear off.
This being said do I have reason to stress and worry lying awake at night?

No need to stress about this

And you can try either melatonin or valerian for sleep

Okay thanks
With the twitching and spasms in my abdomen, stomach and sides there will sometimes be minor pain. Is this normal until the withdrawal has fully worn off?

That's all just the withdrawal syndrome but nothing to worry about

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
