Last night I woke up to a severe pain in my lower abdomen. The pain was so intense, I ran to the bathroom thinking/feeling like I was going to have diarrhea or vomit. Once in the bathroom I was unable to have a bowel movement or even pass gas which is kind of what I felt like I had to do. The pain would no go away, I felt hot and faint, I cooled my face with cold water. I sitting back on the toilet I felt like I had to vomit, which I did and it was very forceful at times. The pain was so bad that it made me cry and I have a high pain tolerance. I went back to bed and curled up into a ball, nothing I did eased the pain. It hurt to sit on my bottom, when I tried I would get shooting pains. My husband immediately got up, got me dressed and drove me to the ER but by the time we got there I felt better and I hate ERs. On the way to the ER I passed gas about 3 times and every time I felt better. We went home and yes the severe pain has diminished but there is a dull pain and my lower abdomen is very tender. I am debating going to my doctor. Does anyone have an insight on what is going on?
