For the last probably about year, I get at least twice a week a pain in the center of my abdomen which causes nausea and cramping. I try to go to the restroom and when I do, one time I seem constipated and then 10 minutes later, I go back in and its like diarrhea. I get it during the day, it seems to subside for the night while im sleeping, and about an hour after I get up it starts again. Does anyone know what could be wrong? I dont have any insurance to be checked, so any advice would greatly be appreciated.

  • Pay close attention to what you're eating--keep track,maybe even write it down, and change some things week by week. Could be just something you're eating regularly that doesn't agree with you anymore. Bread, eggs, dairy in general, lots of possibilities. Could be something more serious though, so I would try to save up at least for an office visit. You can call around to different offices and ask what the doctor there charges, and then even discuss testing alternatives due to your budget when you do get in to one. Doctors can be very understanding to your uninsured plight.
