Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I experienced intense pain in my lower left abdominal area and back for around ten minutes. The pain subsided on its own, without any pain relief medication. Please help.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Also please tell me is any prescription required for medication, or is it available over the counter?

Thank you.

Answered by Dr. Ghulam Fareed

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern.

To address the issue, which seems to be related to your gut, I suggest you the following steps:

  1. I suggest you to avoid consuming meals from restaurants or reheated dishes for a few days, if possible.

  2. Opting for a soft diet cooked at home could be beneficial.

  3. Incorporating yogurt into your diet (natural probiotics) or using over-the-counter probiotic supplements once daily for five to seven days can enhance your gut microbiota. This might help manage mild infections without requiring antibiotics.

  4. I suggest the anti-spasmodic medication, such as Mebeverine or Drotaverine should be readily available. You can take it one to two times a day, around half an hour before meals or whenever you experience abdominal pain. This medication aids in relieving pain caused by smooth muscle spasms, which can arise from the gut, kidneys, and sometimes gynecological issues.

I hope this helps. Please revert in case of further queries.

Thank you.
