Patient :I have pain coming and going that moves around my abdomen. It started about 6 hours ago below my sternum, and is moving side to side right now. It is somewhat severe but leaves quickly. I feel feverish but no fever. No loss of appetite. May have passed out or fallen sleep very quickly a little while ago.
I have IBS and lactose intolerance. No diarrhea.
I don't know whether to go to the Er. I don't want to go with something like indigestion. Should I go to the ER?
