Flatus, sharp abdominal pains below belly button, stools with mud consistency, on medicines for back and ear pain. Cause of stomach pain?

Hi, for the last 3 or 4 days i have been very gassy with sharp abdominal pains below my belly button and on both sides. But the thing that is really bothering me is when i have a bowel movement , it is still gassy but my stool is the consistency of mud, thick nasty mud. Now, i have been on oxycodone for back pain and i also take pravastatin,metropalol and Bentyl . My doctor just added Zyrtec for an earache And he also added Amitriptyline to help me sleep at nite. My question is what is causing this stomache pain ?. The oxycodone that i take are 20 milligrams and is not touching the abdominal pain.

Hi,

The intestine symptoms are in relation to the possible effects over intestine flora via currently consumed medications.

Addition of probiotics with lactobacillus content, plenty of liquids and bland vegan diet are the best tools to handle the crisis of current condition.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I m taking 30mg Flexeril and 800mg Ibuprofen for back pain and before I fell asleep last night there was a very intense tightness in my chest and it worried me. I smoke between 5-10 cigarettes a day and was wondering if the combination of the cigarettes and Flexeril may have propagated the symptom.

I have a complicated 7 year history of low back pain with radicular symptoms after prolapsing 2 discs at L4/ L5 when moving house and then L5/ S1 18 months ago. The subsequent CT (can t have MRI due to SCS) apparently showed no nerve impingement or stenosis. 11 weeks ago I had surgery to implant a 2nd lead into my SCS which was implanted 2 years ago and went back to work a month ago. Since my return, my back pain has got really bad, as has the sciatica. It has prgressed over this period so that last weekend I had electric shock type pains in my legs and then I m now getting very bad pins & needles and tingling in both legs, my back, my lower abdomen and yesterday also my saddle area . Today I just have it in my legs, hips and low back as well as burning pain down the sides of my legs but as the day goes on it generally gets worse and at night I can t feel the stimulation from my SCS as it is so stroing. It feels like I have cool water running down from my lower back and down both legs. I have an appointment for reprogramming at the end of the week. Do I take this progression seriously as possibly cauda equina syndrome or similar or leave it and see how it progresses? Many thanks.

I am 18 years old and about a week ago I woke up with SUDDEN knee and elbow pain and I have no idea why. For the past week I have been living with this pain and when I take ibuprofen the pain seems to go away for the day. But when I go to sleep and wake up in the morning, the pain is back. I am only 18 and I fear a serious problem meaning my young life is over and I would like to find out what this sudden pain may be and what I can do about it.
