hi there, your sign and symptoms are suggestive of amoebic/bacterial cause and hence you should get your stool examined for ova and cysts.Adding an antibiotic like norfox to flagyl would be benificial. Also get an ultrasound abdomen done to rule out any other obstructive cause. Take plenty of fluids and antispasmodic tablet like dyclomine for symptomatic relief. Take care
