It's hard

Hello,

Last night I went to ER because I had a huge pain in my stomach,bowel. I am constipated as per my GP and x-ray.

During the Blood pressure check my head started to hurt very bad and I found it very difficult to speak, it was like I was baby talking until I fainted.

I fainted for 5 seconds but I could still see, hear during this episode.

After recovering this episode the nurse gave me some Paracetamol, which I found it useless.

The doctor told me that i am still constipated and that episode was due to fatigue.

I am scared because usually when you can't speak and head hurts are symptoms of brain damage.

Miralax and Benefiber...pears, peaches and prunes (dried apricots) avoid cheese or anything that you personally have found binding. Good luck! I know it sucks!

I've found probiotics to be helpful when it comes to intestinal health. Also, don't forget to drink TONS of water and eat fiber fiber fiber! Of course, excersise gets things moving along as well. Hope things move along smoothly for you. 💩

I agree with the others about your stomach issues. As for your head, fainting, and slurred speech, i highly doubt that brain damage is a possibility but head pain and fainting can be induced from pain and slurred speech occassionally happens after fainting. I would suggest not to worry about brain damage, you brain is probably perfect. Hope this helps. :)
