  • Gas? Do you have a health plan with an advice line? If so use it?

  • Constipation..Your bowels can be contracting (I've had them feel like labor pains,) or rupturing cysts (Which are non-cancerous, so don't freak out, and they go and come like that.) I use to have them horribly, which also can mimic labor pains.

  • Yeah, it really could just be gas and constipation and at the same time. Even if you are having your BM, there could be some still in there, try a stool softener, I wouldn't use any HARSH laxatives, but I would try it!
