I have had severe abdominal pain for years, to the point where I can't move for days on end. My doctor put me on some medication to help with any bowel obstructions that I may have. I have taken this medicine for a couple days now and I've been fainting since I have started taking it. I have fainted before with my stomach pain, but it has never been this bad. I have fainted four times within a 24-hour timeframe. I can typically handle pain exceedingly well. For me to be doubled over in pain for days on end, it's uncommon. Is there anything I can do to help this pain go away? It's gotten to the point where I'm afraid to eat because I know the pain will follow immediately after I start.

      Nothing has been diagnosed yet. I have had X-rays, ultrasounds, blood work, STD testing, and countless others to no avail.

      Maybe you have IBS which can be diagnosed if all tests are negative.  If you have stated fainting after taking your medication, it may not be suiting you.  Ask your doctor for something else,.

      Try getting an endoscope I also experience pains like that for years I'm 27 now I need to finally get the endoscope procedure. I suffered from stomach pains since I wqs 21 but had no clue about all these things now I am in the medical field I'm learning so much and getting a bit nervous about it all. Our stomachs are just real sensitive from other ppl. When I get nervous first thing I feel pain is my stomach stress and everything. It's like when u get the butterflies. Well imagine feeling with pain it's the worse I know what you are going through it becomes stressful where u don't know what to do anymore
