Swollen stomach and abdominal pain. Is it a gastric problem?

Hey I have a sollen stomach , abdominal pains in the bottom left, and have been passing gas a lot. It has been like that since sunday. My doctor gave me some laxatives yesterday and told me to eat figs and prunes. But nothing seems to help. I have not eaten anything today and had a lavement. Please help, I am only 19 years old.
