Stomach cramps, pain when passing stools, swollen tummy, abdominal pain

Hi, I have been experiencing severe stomach cramping over the last few days, similar to menstrual cramping but feels like I need to poop. When I try to poop then I am in even more pain and only small amounts come out.. I have been drinking lots of water but it doesn t seem to have helped. My tummy is also swollen and when I press down on my lower abdomen it is very painful. Thanks in advance for your advice. M

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you have got absolute constipation giving rise this problem.
If stool is very hard and struck you may go for Enema.
Take liquid paraffin (Cremaffin )1 table spoon full at night daily.
Take more roughage containing diet.
Take plenty of green veggies.
Continue taking plenty of water.
Ok and bye.
