Hi I'm a 20 year old female and I've been

Patient : Hi I'm a 20 year old female and I've been having stomach issues for the last 2 months. I've been constipated for around 8 weeks and I've tried everything such as enemas,laxatives. Also I've been making sure I drink a lot of water and adding fiber to my diet. I can't go to the bathroom without a glass of prune juice. I only took laxatives 3 times in the last 8 weeks as I understand it can make symptoms worse. I've had diarrhea from the laxative/ prune juice etc but my stomach still feels extremely bloated and full. My stomach constantly has dull aches and I don't even wanna eat because the pain it causes my stomach after a meal. I've made a doctors appt and they can't get me in until 4 weeks so I'm wondering if it's necessary to go to the ER. Thanks in advance!
