You mention that you have had problems having a regular bowel
movement before. Cramping can be caused by excessive gas build up
in the intestines. If there has been any changes in your dietary habits,
look into it. If you have used any pain medications containing NSAIDS,
such as Ibuprofen
, these can cause irritation of the lining
of the stomach and give you cramps. It is possible that you may have
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
) to cause these kind of sypmptoms.
You need to have adequate fiber in your diet along with plenty of
fluids.This combined with regular excercise (Brisk walking ) 3 times /wk.
would also be helpful.
