I have constipation with a stomach ache. I recently had a few meals of spicy food and I am facing the consequences for the last four to five days. The symptoms include constipation, narrowing of stools, pain in lower abdomen (especially the lower right portion towards groin), acidic irritation in the stomach, intermittent fatigue and tiredness. I have not seen any bleeding while defecating, no blood spots seen in the stool, stool color is brown, with no black specks. I am diagnosed with GERD with ulcers in the esophageal sphincter and hiatus hernia.

In case of appendicitis, we should be cautious to give any kind of laxatives. So before giving laxatives, we need to rule out appendicitis.
Investigations to be done:
If there is no evidence of appendicitis, then continue with the below-mentioned regimen:
Review back with reports or SOS.
