Really struggling now - I've had stomach pains every night for the past 5 nights now. The doctor gave me lactulose which I thought had helped yesterday but last night the pains were just as bad if not worse. To top it off I now feel like I have bad period pain. The issue is the period pain I normally get is pretty bad to the point I've fainted in the past. Not really sure what to do. My gp has told me if the laxative doesn't work to go back in a week but I'm not sure I can live with being up 4 times in the night in pain for that much longer. Might just be being a massive woose cause I've never been great when I'm ill. Anyone got any ideas?
