Burning abdominal pains that only go away when I lie down 5 weeks later

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been in pain for on off 6 weeks now.

During the first week of pain I went to my GP and he diagnosed cystitis.  Put me on antibiotics but symptoms were not gone by the end of the antibiotics.  I then requested a renewal of the persciption which i only received 4 days later and completed that course and feeling a bit better. That was when i came on to my period. After my period the pain returned in the lower right of my abdomen which made me seriously worry that i might have apendicitis.  This was when i realised i had not had a bowel movement for a week or so.  I then started on herbal diarettics and glycerine suppositories.  This too helped for a while and the pain the the lower right of my abdomen disappeared.  But now it seemed to move the the left hand side.  By this time i had finished the suppositories and diarettics.  Now I feel a solid mass above my belly button when i lie down (do not feel it when standing)  i have a burning pain around the whole of my belly button area (internally) when sitting or standing and each time i cough it hurts like hell.

During this time i have also been taking ibucine (ibuprofen) for the pain.  But bear in mind i am codine intolerant.
