    as you are a man, that rules out a lot of ideas.

    Yes, could be stress. But its best to talk to a doctor, just in case. Is there no other doctor you could see or call?

    Whatever you do - dont Google it - you will find you are dying of 17 different diseases simultaneously.

    Sounds almost like ibs to me which can be caused by stress. I agree with Lucy that you should see your doctor and get checked over.

    I have ibs and peppermint tea helps when my stomach is misbehaving.

    Hi Swim,

    It could be any number of things. Until your doctor is back I'd try keeping a food diary. That way you can try and work out if there is a any pattern between what you are eating and the cramps. Might also be worth using this diary to record when you are feeling stressed etc.

    Definitely go see your doctor when he is back. Fingers crossed you get things sorted soon!

    Take care :)
    Em

    I feel as others have said Swimmer, its something to see your doctor about, and if yours is still on leave then seek an appointment with another doc at the practice, assuming its not a one doc surgery. Are there any of those left?


    Its probably nothing serious but if I were you I would definitely get it checked out.

    It does sound stress related but could be a number of other things, if I were you I'd get an appointment with your gp and let them examine you.
