... for people with chronic pain as an IBS symptom. Pain is something that (thankfully) I rarely experience. Saturday night I went out to dinner with a friend, however, and woke up at 4am the next morning to crippling abdominal pain. I broke out in a cold sweat and passed out on the bathroom floor. I awoke in a puddle of sweat, went back to bed and the process repeated itself twice more until I passed whatever it was the bothered me (this was no small feat either).Needless to say, those of you with chronic pain have my UTMOST sympathy... I swear if someone had shot me up with morphine it would have been like throwing a thimble-full of water on a raging fire!
