Customer Question
Hi I am a...

Hi I am a foreigner and am in holiday here in America. Last weekend I over drunk with alcohol and was sick and vomiting. My bowel has not been regular. I went to the toilet once yesterday and it came out dark green. I have been having pain on my left side above my hip. I have taken exlax this morning and I vomited up all the water. The oak. Is bad and I can’t seem to sit still due to the pain. I feel very faint and am struggling to eat

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The pain has been with me for two days now

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have IBS and am gluten and lactose intolerant

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The pain at lower left side can come from a few causes.
It can come from intestinal spasms or gas.
Exlax can cause cramps.
An inflammation, infection of the colon like colitis, diverticulitis can cause pain there.
Irritable bowel syndrome is possible'
You can try Motrin for pain.
It is available over the counter.
If you develop diarrhea,Peptobismol can help
If it continues, I would advise to consult doctor to have an examination in an urgent care.
Please take plenty of fluid. gatorade.
