For the past few days I've had a very annoying bout of middle-and-lower abdominal pain, both a dull pain and a stabbing pain. It comes and goes seemingly randomly, some days worse, some days better. Today is not a good day (hence this post)
I seem to have no other symptoms - no vomiting, (almost) no nausea. I'm neither constipated nor do I have diarrhea, though my stool is not normal. I don't think I have blood in my stool. I don't think I have a fever, either. My appetite is normal. I have a background of panic disorder, health anxiety and digestion issues, but never to this degree.
The condition started a few months ago. I visited the doctor, run blood and stool tests, found nothing, and the condition subsided, only to reappear a few weeks ago.
I have an appointment with a family doctor in two days, but the pain is really annoying, erratic, and scary. I'm considering visiting the ER, but I wonder if that's overreacting.
So my question is - did anyone else experience similar conditions? How long did they last? What was the outcome? Does this sound serious enough to seek medical attention right now, or wait it out until Thursday?
