I have been diagnosed with IBS and get horrendous lower left quadrant intestinal pains in the same spot. They get so bad that I have been hospitalized. All the tests that Ive had do not show a thing, they have looked at my insides every which way to Sunday. Anyone else ever get this? It sometimes goes on for hours and hurts so bad you want to die. I dont understand how they cant find anything wrong in there. The doctor says it must be spasms, involutary muscular contractions. It feels like someone's got vise grips squeezing your guts. Anyone got any suggestions how to stop them? Im slowly going out of what little mind I have left.
