side effect?

I have been taking hytrin 1 mg before going to bed for the last 3 yrs or so. Recently I started getting slight pain on the left side of lower abdomen, which is not deep inside but on the surface skin muscle as well as headache early morning. One day forgot to take the dose and alas, the pain and headache disappeared. I have now stopped taking the medicine. I wish to bring this to the notice of everybody for suggestions/opinions/advise.
