Welcome to HealingWell, Rosscoe. I'm sorry you needed to come here, but glad you found us. I'll second the suggestion from Tab, no Ibuprofen or Naproxen. Tylenol is safe for us to take. Some people get relief from the pain with a warm heating pad on the abdomen. Also avoid "gassy" foods like bran, vegetables in the cabbage family, beans. Also, fatty and spicy foods may irritate your colon and increase the pain. Keep your food fairly soft and bland for now.
I hope you have an appointment with a GI specialist soon, so you can get a diagnosis and start treatment.

I'm awating a call from GI to schedule the scope. It can't come fast enough.
