    Bowel obstruction

    I am worried that I have a bowel obstruction.
    I feel that I have trapped wind that wont come out. I usually pass wind alot.
    I had a poo with wind this morning, could this happen so quickly.
    I don't have any other symptoms.

    Re: Bowel obstruction

    If you just had a bowel movement this morning itís safe to say you donít have an obstruction... An obstruction doesnít just appear in a few hours. There would have to be a tumor, surgical adhesions, a foreign object, a cumulation of impacted stool etc. Those donít just pop up out of nowhere.

    It would be causing A LOT of pain, and usually vomiting and nausea...

    It just sounds like you have some trapped gas, which can be brutal I know. Iíve had chronic trapped gas for years so I donít take it lightly.

    Try drinking some ginger or chamomile tea, taking a gentle stroll, or doing an abdominal massage (you can find some on youtube)

    All the best.

    Re: Bowel obstruction

    I realise that I do not have a bowel obstruction!
    Its just my stomach is so bad at the moment.
    Pain in lower left abdomen when eating and lots of wind and cramps.
    I have tried colpermine, but it’s not helping.
    Know I will have a ct scan eventually.
    I don’t know how to cope as pain is quite bad.
    Gp said blood tests were all ok and this might be ibs.
    Consultant wants tests to rule out divicular disease but this will be ages as I cancelled in Feb .

    Re: Bowel obstruction

    Just cant stop jumping from one illness to another. This morning it was kidney failure and now its appendix. I have a burning pain in my right lower abdomen, but think it's my hip.Been feeling abit sick on and off, but think that's probably anxiety. This is a nightmare, I think focusing on symptoms make them worse. I hope I don't have an appendicitis.

    You said it..."I think focusing on symptoms makes them worse".

    Heart disease...kidney failure...diverticular disease...bowel obstruction...appendicitis..

    You ARE jumping from one perceived illness to another.

    I know I really am jumping from one illness to another one. Iím just struggling to be rational and it feels that every illness is real.
    Ive managed to eat tonight, I think not eating is making my nauseau worse. My gp sent me some mindfulness links, Iím going to try some of these later.
    The Pain in my right side is real, but Iím sure I would be in a lot more pain if it was appendix.
    Thank you for replying.

    I get a lot of right sided pain with IBS, pb. Appendicitis is extremely painful and you would be doubled up and not thinking about posting on NMP.

    Give the links a go because you have nothing to lose by trying some of the suggestions? It may take your mind off your symptoms? I hope so.
