Pain in the lower stomach. Is it due to gas?

I woke up with a terrible pain in my lower stomach . At first I thought it was just gas. My stomach feels full as hard so I figured I needed to use the restroom. However the pain got worse to where I couldn t stand straight or even walk or get on the bed . Turning to my left side was agonizing so I finally laid down on my right . The pain has got away and not intense but I still feel discomfort . Is it just gas ?

Dear madam, it sounds like something more serious. It could be just a cramp caused by abdominal bloating but if you have some associated symptoms such as fever, nausea, vomiting or abdominal muscle guarding or blood in the stool u should go to ER as soon as possible. If not, then just wait to see if this will happen again and then should some detailed gastoent. workup de done. Try to detect and avoid food that triggers bloating and discomfort.

Wish you good health, Dr. I. romich
