Question: Woke up feeling like I have to poop, but couldn't. The pain was so sever that I fell on the floor and couldn't get up for several minutes. Although, I am a male, it must have felt like having a baby. I was screaming and also had cold sweat. Please help! Should I go see a specialist for this? If so, what kind? Never felt like this before.

Thanks for writing in

The information that you have. Provided is suggestive of an acute intraabdominal condition

It would be better if you go for an abdominal ultrasound and complete blood count with urine examination

If possible yes you should go for a clinical examination with a specialist

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern

Wishing you a healthy life ahead

I do not have kidney stones yet I have severe pain my left side and so far a ct scan and ultrasound haven't shown much that would be causing my problems. I have nausea quite often and often times will throw up or have loose bowel movements. I also have to pee every 20 minutes to 30 minutes max. I don't sleep much at night because I'm up so may times to pee. I can't take this much longer. Any other ideas as to what may be causing this?

I have a 3yr old that sudden developed an area of neck swelling. He is prett much asymtomatic. No fever. Periodic umbilical pain for the last 2 weeks. We went to the ER and they discovered that he has multiple enlarged lymph nodes bilaterally on his neck. The did an abdominal ultrasound which showed borderline splenomegaly and an enlarged peripancreatic lymph node. Rountine blood work came back normal. The ER doctors had no answers for me--just told me to follow up with my pediatrician. Any ideas as to what could cause this?

I sometimes wake up with a headache, vomiting every 30 minutes or so that include deep burps, chills, sinuses running, loose bowels & belching. This episode lasts 8 to 10 hours and I am rendered unable to cope during this time. My body seems to be purging itself. I recently went for an abdominal ultrasound & was told that I was excessively gassy. Could this be a symptom of severe gas build up? I also suffer from heartburn but not extreme.
