Dear Cathe,

What you describe could be due to constipation, or irritable bowel syndrome or trapped wind.
It will be very important for you to be examined by a doctor t exclude other more serious possibilities.
I will therefore strongly recommend you go and see your doctor, if symptoms does not get better after three days, or indeed if your symptoms seems to be getting worse. How do you feel about that?

In the mean time, why not try taking some pain killers like paracetamol and perhaps some more fruit and fibre in the diet?
