Customer: replied 2 years ago.

When i go to the toilet to poop although the pain preventing me from eating anything i keep going to the toilet. Can you also please recommend some medication i could buy form a chemist.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Absolutely not!!
This is not self treatment without exam.
This could be
colon infection
abscess
diverticulitis
obstruction
inflammatory bowel disease
All of these are potentially dangerous and treatment depends on examination and testing.
I would even say you are justified in going to A&E at this point.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

I have not heard back from you.
Please realize this could even be an upper GI bleed, which is dangerous.
I suggest you go right to A&E.
