Does anybody ever get this? It only happens when I'm really stressed out. My IBS attack start out with major gas and bloating, then cramps, usually without a change in bowel habits, then a few days later, BAM! I have spasms either on my right or left side. They start out as a sharp, pinching pain that last just a second. Then, it will spasm in the same spot with a hard, bearing down pain lasting 2 seconds. Last night, a big one woke me from my sleep then I had them the rest of the night. Maybe every 15 minutes, maybe one every hour. I still have them today, but not as hard or frequent. I have been taking Levsin under my tongue. Still very uncomfortable. Any suggestions? Heat really doesn't help; sometimes makes it worse.
