How to get rid of lower abdominal pain and constipation?

Hi Doctor. I have small specks of black spots in my feces. I usually have mucus in stools. I have recurrent constipation. I have lower abdominal pain more on the left side of my abdomen. I try and eat as much fibre rich foods, but it doesn't seem to aid my constipation problem. What do you think is the cause for all of these symptoms of mine?

HI
Well come to HCM
The symptoms given here could be nonspecific and not related with any disease, the abdominal pain could be vague, and the constipation is not the disease, in my opinion drink more water, have a fiber containing diet, for the symptomatic relief you can try Tab Chlordiazepoxide and clinidium three times in day, hope this helps.

Ok so I have a history of holding on to bowel movements because im busy or whatever the case, and usually I just go when im not busy anymore, but sometimes it turns into constipation. Last night at about 12am I had to have a bowel movement, but I decided to hold it because I was going to skype my girlfriend, we skyped til 3am then I went to sleep, and when I was going to sleep I had no pain in my abdomen. Cut to this morning when I wake up, at 7 (4 hours sleep isnt usual for me) I had this intense pain in my lower abdomen and stomach, around my bellybutton, and I thought I was just thinking too into it or whatever and tried to go back to sleep, but the pain was so bad I started heavy breathing and so I decided to take some painkillers for it, thinking it was constipation and id calm the pain down til I could have a bowel movement. However now I have had a reasonably sizeable bowel movement, and I still have the pain, I read about bowel obstructions and how they can cause similar pain, and it would make sense considering my position, but the only symptom I have is the pain, I can pass gas, no vomitting or anything. What could be causing this pain? Other details, im an 18 year old guy, have no history of any diseases or issues other than asthma as a kid which I doubt is related. So what is this? Please help!!

My daughter, 22 years old, has been experiencing lower abdominal pain. She has had an ovarian cyst removed. Didn t know if this could be the cause. She recently had a colonoscopy last week. That only showed she has a clear colon. The doctor said she was constipated. She refuses the diagnosis. Any suggestions?

Hi! My daughter is a little over 2 years old and since she was 6 months (i.e., after she stopped breast feeding), she s had chronic constipation. Our doctor has kept her on Merolax (a stool softener) and swears such long-term use will have no ill effects. Although her stool is now soft, tne problem is that our daughter now tries to hold her stool in (goes ridged and crosses her legs), resulting in something like 12+ small diapers per day and a VERY red bottom, no matter how much diaper cream we use. Also, lately she s complained of abdominal pain a few times a day, and we ve noticed that her tummy is pretty pronounced although she is not at all fat. Now we re worried about some form of bloating too! Any ideas??
