Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night with terrible cramping that is the worst pain of your life?I get this problem probably once every so month. I wake up at about 3am in terrible pain. My bowels make the loudest noises ever and I have to sit on the toilet for the rest of the night/morning. Sometimes its so bad that I can't poop and the cramping is the worst. It takes about an hour of me sitting on the toilet trying and trying to go until finally everything comes out.Sunday while on vacation I woke myself up at 3am going, "Ow ow ow". The severe cramps were back. I tried to massage my stomach but then I found a hard spot. I pressed on it and heard the loudest bowel noise ever and then it softened and I heard something rushing through my bowels. I then ran to the bathroom and proceeded to #### out my insides. It was pretty nasty. I asked my GI doc if it was just coincidence when I pressed on the hard spot that it did that and he said no. Something about having severe IBS that makes my intestines do that. These episodes last for hours and they are so painful. Bleh...So what about you guys? Do you ever have that happen to you?
