I have suffered a few obstructions. My obstructions have horrid pain that comes in waves much like labor pains (I explain like someone took a dropper of acid and drops one drop that spreads and gets worse with each contraction), the pain is localized around the belly button area, I cannot pass air thru either direction, no stools though I feel like I need to go, and then the nausea and sometimes vomiting up of bile/stool. Once the nausea starts I know its time to hit the ER. The pain with my obstructions has always been so bad, that I have NO choice but to go to the ER. Hope that helps.
