First off, I'm not in the UK but this is the forum that keeps showing up in searches. I hope that doesn't matter.
I'm at that fat, forty, flatulent stage in my life, but I try to eat well because I'm diabetic. Starting this past Thursday - pain, like a really tight belt across my upper abdomen, the bottom of my ribcage hurts, radiates to the middle of my back and until today I've been able to lay down and make it stop some, with an addition of tylenol with codeine at night to make me sleep.
I've been drinking pure non-sweetened apple juice with a bit of apple cider vinegar in it as much as I can stand.
I am not having nausea nor diarrhea, but I'm not hungry at all really. I'm trying to eat a few things to keep my blood sugar up.
However I feel completely constipated/full. I did go last night and it was normal but very light colored. If I don't feel better by this afternoon (I woke up far too early and need to nap first) I am going to the ER to see what's happening.
Would it be bad if I took a stool softener ie: colace or a laxative?
