What is wrong if I'm feeling rectum and lower abdomen pressure?


Answer by  HilaryC (1382)

It may be simply constipation. Try exlax or another similar item. If it continues, you may have to see a doctor to be completely sure as to what it is. I know I experienced similar symptoms and exlax helped a lot. If you're a woman, it could be ovarian cysts pressing on your organs.
