Can anyone offer any advise please I have been suffering with lower abdominal pain for almost 3 months now & everytime I eat I am sick also I am unable to open my bowels for between 7 to 10 days & have lost almost a stone & half since the complaint began. Prior to all this happening I was a pretty healthy 29 yr old female but now I am in constant pain which is preventing me from doing the most simple of things.

Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. You should not ignore these symptoms and should seek the consultation of a gastroenterologist at the earliest. In view of your symptoms of lower abdominal pain, constipation and weight loss, there’s a possibility of a partial intestinal obstruction and you might need further tests like CT scan of the abdomen, enteroscopy etc for the confirmation of the diagnosis.

I sincerely hope this helps. Take care.
