This may seem stupid, but I'm so frustrated I'm scouring the web for answers.Starting last Sunday I started to get severe abdominal cramps that would last 30-90mins. Later that night I experienced the most severe pains I have ever had (including broken bones, bashed head, flue, and food poisoning.) by a factor of 4 or more. I cannot describe the pain other than it was localized and so intense that I shook Constantly, could not hold still, could not stop moaning, and forced myself to go the emergency room, which I never do.They essentially did nothing and my doctor the next day though I might be constipated and prescribed a laxative and an antispasmodic.Since then my bowels seem to depend on the laxative and I have had occurrences at least once a day usually at night, though not as severe as the first night. I can't take going through this kind of pain on a regular basis but no solution is on the horizon.The pain occurs always in my left lower abdomen and my bowels have been either diareah or very very fragmented and small.Thanks for any information, I will continue to learn what I can. Right now it looks like I'm going to have a probe stuck up my rear without the honor of meeting any aliens.
