Hi Daniel. Have you had any bowel symptoms? Urinary symptoms? Any pain when you press your abdomen?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
I did;Pain in my right side of the lower abdomen then on the left side. Sometimes on the sides moving to the back.
Expert:  Elliot Ruff replied 9 days ago.

Okay thanks, ***** ***** discomfort which moves like this is your bowel. If it is mildly inflamed from something like gastroenteritis. This is not serious, however you can try Buscopan for this as it is an antispasmodic.
