Question: I have not moved my bowels in two days so I took some natural laxative, Calm, which is magnesium based. Since then I have had intermittent pain on my left side underneath my rib cage. I am also expelling gas. I am afraid I may be having an appendicitis or gall bladder attack. I also some Zantac which helps a little reduce the pain.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to abdominal bloating.

I recommend using simeticone medication three tablets a day to relieve the bloating.

I also recommend to use Buscopan 10 mg to relieve the pain.

I suggest to take a daily probiotic and use a fiber rich diet.
