Hi Stephanie ,
You should take an antispasmodic and a good antacid.If the pain still persists then go for an ultrasound.
Best wishes ,
Take care

Hi
Welcome to
Health care Magic

since the pain is from 5 days, not relieved by medication, ultrasound scan of abdomen is required to rule out appendicitis and any other disorder.. do not neglect.. consult a General surgeon.. take care..

first you should go for usg-abdomen by consulting general surgeon in your area,bcoz pain could be due to a/c pancreatitis,stones in gall bladder or it may be due to serious causes like intestional obstruction, appendicitis,diverticulitis.. etc,&are life threatining. till then take tab rantac150 ibd,tad anafortan 1bd along with gelucilmps sup 2to3 tsp on empty stomach provided thery should not be any delay in getting ultrosound abdomen.ok take care.

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.

I have had 3 c sections and since my last one 2 years ago I have had general discomfort in my lower mostly left abdomen. Lately I have had frequent urgent uncomfortable urination, with negative urine culture. Had renal ultrasound today that looked fairly normal I think. Wonder about scar tissue? Also I have ulcerative colitis but haven't had a serious flair in about 2 years.
