caligirl, I'm really sorry you're experiencing not only pain, but frustration with having pain as well. It's so hard for our partners to understand how we feel, and that's hard to accept sometimes.
I would suggest that you contact your doctor regarding the abdominal pain but do try taking the drug with food...it often helps. It does take some time as well to have those side effects go away, so it might take a few more days. Your doctor (or pharmacist) should be able to advise you further on that aspect of it.
Hang in there....it's never easy to get the right diagnosis...especially if there's more than one thing going on in your body. Feel free to vent here when you need to...it definitely helps!!
