Q) I am hoping someone can help. I have been in terrible pain for 3 days. I called my dr and they told me to go to the ER. I sat in the ER for 8 hrs and I was never seen. I called my dr and they said they couldnt see me for a week. I have had an ectopic pregnancy, and had a miscarriage. So needless to say, any pain that I may experience is going to scare the hell out of me. I have been home for the last 2 days and have realized that I am unable to pass gas, and it is very difficult to have a bm ( constipation). And today, I scared yelling in pain when I had to pee. Is there anything I can take for either problem? I am in a lot of pain and I am barely sleeping. I have to return to work tomorrow and I dont know how I am going to survive…Thanks for any help
Here’s something that may help. You can try drinking some prune juice for the constipation problem, and eating foods high in fiber and avoid drinking alcohol which can raise triglycerides levels and may increase constipation. As for the UTI, I think there is stuff over the counter that you can start taking that will help with the pain, but I don’t know if it’s safe to take while pregnant. If you truly have a UTI though, you need to be put on an antibiotic to get rid of it.
