I know that the elementary answer will be "Go to the doctors", which I likely will. But I'm not a fan of the doctors, so this thread is more or less to guage how quickly I should go . . . Okay, some side info... 32 year old male, in shape/exercises regularly, recently started taking saw palmetto capsules (may or may not be related). Yesterday mid-morning, I started to feel a pain (2-3 on a 10 scale). More of a discomfort really, in my lower stomach area, about 4-5 inches below and slightly to the right hand side off my belly button. Doing google searches and other half-arsed internet researching, this looks roughly to be the area of the prostate. I started taking the saw palmetto for prostate health, ironically. The pain itself feels somewhat like a strained muscle. But the worst part about it is it feels like I have to #1 almost all the time. But actually going to the bathroom does nothing to relieve the discomfort. Anyone have any idea what this might be? Should I leave work early and go to the doctors? Will it pass with . . . rest???? Could it be a side-effect of the saw palmetto?
