I'm a 23 year old female. About 2.5 months ago for the first time, I experienced severe abdominal pain. I was unable to pass any stool immediately and it took about 2-3 hours of pain that came in waves. No position made the pain better and it was debilitating. (I thought about going to the ER but I could not walk or extend my body to do so). I also almost blacked out on the toilet from the pain while having chills and profuse sweating. Eventually I was able to pass a stool (both hard and liquid) and the pain went away.
Fast forward to this weekend, I came home late from a wedding and had been drinking and eating fish, pasta, cake etc. I also had some Taco Bell at 1 am. I was awaken from sleep around 2:30 AM with the same exact excruciating "wave like" pain from the previous month. I was again unable to pass stool immediately and had all the same symptoms. I was up all night and the pain persisted until 5 pm the next day until MiraLax kicked in and I was able to go (both hard and soft stools again). This time around I also had loss of appetite for 48 hours after.
Since this has happened twice now, I am concerned something is wrong because I assumed after the first time it must of been food poisoning. Any suggestions? I'm going to try and find a gastro doc soon.
