I have IBS, which occasionally causes constipation which in turn makes me kinda nauseous. Finally, I decided to go to Walmart and just buy some simple laxatives that supposedly soften stool (Senokot laxatives). First day, I took the two that were recommended at night, but the next morning/afternoon it still hadn't helped. SO the next night, I took the next dose which said to take 4 two times a day. (wasn't sure if that meant take two twice, to equal four, or to take four, twice a day). I took 4 of them, and today I have had horrible stomach pain like I have diarrhea cramps, but whenever I go to the bathroom I am unable to pass anything really. I've only actually gone to the bathroom twice in the past few days, but my stomach is killing me. I'll be sitting down then it will feel like someone stabbed me so I'll stand up to go to the bathroom. Usually the pain dissipates after a few minutes of standing, but when I'll sit down it will happen again sporadically. Should I go to the doctor or will this pass? BTW I'm a 19 year old female and go to student health.
