Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Is this something new or are you suffering from chronic constipation? Do you suffer from any other medical condition?
Thanks for your reply.
Do you have abdominal pain also? Are you able to pass flatus? Any other symptoms such as vomiting?
In that case with abdominal pain, for an acute constipation not responding to laxative and not passing gas, any obstruction in the gastrointestinal tract needs to be investigated. Therefore you need to go to the ER where they will do a plain x-ray which will be beneficial in knowing whether there is an obstruction. Further tests may also be done. Please do not delay. At least an abdominal x-ray is a must.
