i had some severe stomach pain a few days ago and i went to the hospital because i was afraid i got colitis again. they did all the blood work, urine tests, and a cat scan and said nothing was wrong with me except gas. i started getting this pressure pain right under my ribs about 2 1/2 days ago and i assumed it was constipation even though i drink a ton of water. i rarely pass gas and have not had a proper bowel movement. i took a vegetable laxative that night to relieve the constipation, but nothing happened. i dealt with the pain the next day and still no movement. on the third day i took 4 dissolving gas-x strips, nothing. i took 2 chocolate laxatives 2 hours after that, and then 2 more 4 hours after that. it's now been 15 hours since i took all my laxatives and i should be having bowel movements, but nothings happening. i dont wanna go to the doctor again and have her tell me im gassy after a million tests i dont need, plus i dont have insurance and cant afford it. what could be wrong?
TraylorA - hope you are feeling better. What you describe is exactly what I am experiencing right now. Right down got the pain under my ribs! Please tell me if you ever found out what is was. I have taken laxitives 2 days in a row with no bowel movement.
