General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi! It seems that you had a mild attack of appendicitis which got the intestines and omentum adhered to each other. This is preventing your intestines to move freely and hence you feel like something blocking your intestines. As the infection is still persisting, you may be hyperventilating and may be also tachycardic. I will advise you not to take any more medicines to relieve your constipation, as it may harm you more in case it is appencitis. I will suggest you to consult a general surgeon at the earliest possible who may do some routine blood tests followed by ultrasound abdomen and possibly sirgery if appendicitis is considered. Good luck.
