Hello, I have been having the same symptom on and off for several months. The doctor is not sure what the problem is, suggested maybe gas, but also mentioned that I go to an allergist as the symptoms can be caused by food/drug allergies. Also along the the pain and discomfort I can get hive like symptoms and feel feverish when the pain occurs, but not always. I read that you have had quite abit of testing and have found nothing serious so far, that's good. I'm hoping the problem to be allergy related and easily treated.
Every morning shortly after eating breakfast I get extremely severe pain in my lower abdomen which lasts anwhere from 20 seconds - 5 minutes. When the pain stops I feel the urge to pass stool which I do and then get relief. The pain feels like a griping pain as if I ate some bad chinese food or something. I have been to 3 gastroenterologists who have done 3 colonoscopies and endoscopies and found nothing. Their diagnoses range from pain predominant ibs to a spastic colon. Also seen a gynaecologist who sees adenomyosis on the cervix and suspects endometriosis may be on the bowel. This has been going on for over 2 years now and has happened every single day. Tried all diets imaginable including gluten free/dairy free to no avail. Had an ovarian cist that ruptured once which made the pains even worst and was rushed to the ER. I am currently about to start some new medicines from a gynaecological aspect to see if they will help as I have made absolutely no progress with the meds prescribed by the gastro docs. These pains are really severe and come every time I have to pass stool.If there is anyone out there with any similar symptoms or feedback that may help please post. Thanks for your time

I am 28yrs old now and have been dealing with "something" since I was about 20. Everything that you described above....it was hard not to cry when I read this because I've gone thru YEARS of pain, suffering, and frustration over this.
For the first few years doctors only concentrated on the fact that I have a history of Ovarian Cysts, I was passed between gynos and internal specialists, test after test, days in the ER, nights spent screaming from the pain or crying because I was trying so hard to control it or hide it. I've lost a lot of friends because my age group just wants to party & have fun and when I cancel too many times they eventually stop inviting me. I haven't been able to hold a real job for years, and now that I have one I'm struggling for the energy to get up and do it everyday, hiding the pain so they don't send me home, losing income when they Do send me home because I'm in so much pain.
the pain is always on my left side, the soft spot between my hip bone and pubic bone. First thing in the morning the twisting cramping feeling Always wakes me before my alarm. If im laying on my back flat I can actually Feel the lumping up and hardening in my stomach, other people have felt it too if they are laying with me at just the right time (it is really low in my gut, right above and to the left of pevlic bone)....soemtimes it feels like gas bubbles but with the pain worse than a period. My BM are Always regular though, same time every morning (consistancy depends on what ive eaten, very hard stool or very loose, but never totally normal). The intensity of the pain decreases after BM but doesnt fully go away ever. Sometimes its so sharp that it effects my left leg, the muscles start tightening and it gets hard to walk. After years of favoring my left leg because of this my right knee now usually gets so swollen by the end of the day that i have to elevate & ice it.
When I attempt excerise, my body feels good because it Desperatly needs the movement, but I pay dearly for it the next few days. I usually cant move out of bed for a couple days after at least an hour of physical activity (even walking thru a park).
I was finally sent to a urologist who believed that I had IC (intercistial cysitus). They believed that I had a problem with my bladders mucus lining that was causing the pain & inflammation. Started me on a Bladder Installation Treatment plan where I had to go in twice a week and have a catherter installed and medication inserted into my bladder. Long story kind of short, at a time when I honestly thought I cound't expereince any more pain from this, the treatments made the pain actually triple (after a month I had to stop)!! No work, no personal life, no support, no one understands what I go through, nothing makes the pain go away except sleep and heavy narcotics (which I detest).
I caught a cold a week ago and was not able to eat solid foods. For the first time in over 8years I had no pain for a week!!!!!! But the day that I got well enough to eat something solid.......within 4hours I was right back where I started . By the morning, with my first regualr BM in a week I was in so much pain that I had to cancel all holiday plans and take an extra sick day because I couldnt move without the cramping bring me to tears.
I'm exhausted, drained, frusturated....Ive struggled to not let this effect the person that I am and my attitude towards life, but the pain is slowly taking over everything and I'm lost.....

I have never spoken to anyone about this because it was not explainable easily and I was afraid of misdiagnosis. That, and fear of embarrasment. Also, it has not been that frequent lately. In fact, it happened today after more than 10 years. After some research, and more information to help explain better (and a little courage), this time I have decided to talk to my doctor. And BTW, it is not known to be linked to cancer.

I understand how you feel. Try having it where you feel like you desperately need to pass a stool and nothing happens. I've had that where I get the bad cramping and bloating very badly cause I need to go, but I can't go. I can't even pass my gas out. Now that's bad. Those pains can be as bad as being pregnant and having labor pains.
