two days ago got a bout of severe trapped wind, since then had intermittent pain on left side of hip for a day, now no pain but generally feel a little sore across abdomen. all feel a little irritated - feel slight gurgles occasionally. what is best to treat it and should i be worried or just an excess reaction to something i ate. ate today and that was fine. bowel movements normal and no pain when urinating.
There is no way to diagnosis this without exam, and possibly testing.
For example, diverticulosis [pockets in the colon] can act like this...a mild case.
So can irritable bowel syndrome.
It appears to be getting better, so it does not appear to be an emergency.
However, trapped gas in some cases that relieves and comes back, can indicate partial obstruction.
Seeing your doctor is required.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
