My worry is that you can't empty yourself. That could lead to something serious.

That won't help your problem. You may have a blockage. That can be life threatening.
Best get to An ER or some kind of medical facility very quickly.

It concerned me when you said it hurt to press on your stomach.
Fever or high pulse rate, lightheaded ness, might be as much of a concern as vomiting.
I am not a doctor and you need a dr. To check you over.

What you should do is take yourself to an emergency room - if you do have a blockage, you should NOT wait - as you could end up with a life threatening situation such as a rupture. Playing telephone tag with your doctors' office can be wasting precious time that you could be getting treatment.

Also, I would not eat solid foods right now, only liquids, and note that tramadol can CAUSE CONSTIPATION - so that would be contra-indicated if you are having problems going to the bathroom.

I had a blockage five years ago and they had me on tpn.

take a look at what your ingesting, supplements etc, perhaps some kind of change brought on your constipation some types of fiber like cellulose have caused me issues before from certain supplements. Some people with IBD do experience constipation as well as diarrhea i know i have, but i have much more tendency to have diarrhea then constipation.

eliminate meat, white flour and refined sugar and increase your intake of whole wheat then wait another 4-5 days. the insoluble fiber can sometimes be enough to get things going again. i've been learning how food and diet affect my disease for seven years now. miralax can also be used for short term relief but getting your diet straight can be a better long term plan. By the way i've not had a blockage or surgery for the entire duration of my disease course of 6-7 years.

My husband was given tramadol for abdomen pain when he was flaring and it helped him. But I'm sure it wont help you have a bowel movement. Please go to the emergency room immediately. Lots of good wishes your way

If you're having extreme pain then I wouldn't wait to be seen or wait for vomiting to start. Blockages can be life threatening so if nothing is passing and you're in a lot of pain and becoming distended then you likely have a blockage. Vomiting and fever can come later and a fever may be a sign of a bowel perforation which would require surgery. I hope you're able to see someone soon Christi. Taking more laxatives at this point will likely make you vomit, we see it happen all too often on the forum. Stick with liquids only until you're able to be seen and keep us posted.

I agree that you should go to an ER. An obstruction is a medical emergency. I had one before, and i was not vomiting either, but I had massive pain.
