Q.

Lower abdominal discomfort

My boyfriend, 49 years old, has been suffering from what he calls "heaviness" in his lower abdomen, as well as intermittent nausea, fever and weakness, for the past week. He tried citrosoda for a couple of days in case it is a bladder infection and it seemed to help for a while. Tonight he is really battling. The discomfort woke him up and he keeps going to the toilet. His stools are normal though. He cannot sleep and is finding it easier to sit upright. He says it is not "pain", more uncomfortable. I will make sure that he goes to the Doctor in the morning, but right now I am worried. Please help with some advice!
