I have abdominal pain and bloating , as well as cramping. im extreamly tired all the time, and when i have to use the bathroom i have to use it now, and one min im hungary and then the next im not, im have an iud (meraina) so the likely hood of me being pregnant is not there.

Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
I have seen cases where women using IUD have come back with abdominal pain and cramps but these symptoms are more during menstruation. But as you are having bloating and frequent stools, I am suspecting gastritis. I suggest Tab Pantop 40 mg twice daily before food for two days. Drink lots of water, avoid spicy and fatty food. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
