I had a terrible day yesterday. From 3:30am to 4:30pm, I felt like I was in labor. I tried peppermint tea, peppermint altoids Dicyclamine (Bentyl). Nothing seem to work. I was so exausted and crying. I almost went to the emergency room. These spasms seem to last longer and longer. I called my regular doctor, who after 6 hours finally got back to me and said to take metamucil. I thought that was a terrible idea. Then my gastro doctor finally called and said to try an enema and if that didnt work try drinking citrate of magnesia. Luckily just as my kids were pulling out to get these things for me, I finally went and it was liquid. My question is has anyone found anthing that helps these awful spasms? I couldn't live like this, if I start getting them more frequently. I don't know how some of you do it. I usually get them about once a month.
