Customer Question

Friday I had really bad pain in my left side, higher than my belly button just under my rips and around the back too. It was so bad that I didn't sleep for two days and took pain killers I also felt nauseous with it. Sunday It died down, Monday was fine just feeling pressure in my stomach and Tuesday night it seems to come back again but not as painful. It feels like a bad ache, also feels like period type pain. I have been going to the toilet ok, stools ok as far as I am aware, but do feel like there's lots of pressure there that I still need to toilet and wind. Just want some advice before I make an appointment and see if there is anything I can do at home.
