Help, Sharp stabbing pain in abdomen struggling and really need to be ok for work 😔

Hi there,

Just after some advice, I have really bad sharp stabbing pain in right side of my abdomen.

I've tried tens machine hot water bottle various painkillers none of which are working.

Can anyone suggest anything else to try and help me I work in a physical job (in a nursery with 3-5 year olds) so I'm constantly on the go & don't like to show that I'm struggling and in pain.

Thanks in advance

I'm in literally the exact same boat as you, even working in a similar setting! I find comforatble shoes and loose trousers help loads, letting your boss know and being able to take regular breaks, I go into the quiet room when the pain gets too much. Are you on the pill or anything?
