Dear Zoe,Bowel blocksges most of the time show up on an ordinary abdominal x-ray.The symtoms can vary but mostly severe pain,you cannot pass wind nor bowel motions and when the doc listens to your tummy sounds there is usually none or very faint. You also vomit and become grossly distended.If you have had gastro pains in the past well this is ten tmes worse. You cannot stand up straight and you feel like crawling everywhere.Love always Robyne.
