No, because you haven't defined what a spasm is or how having pain automatically leads one to conclude there is a "spasm" present. What if you take the pain away? Then how do you know?quote:know they are having a spasm by the pain. Don't you agree ?
This makes a lot more sense because you are ascribing a spasm to a particular sensation that is not pain. Do others perceive a spasm as a tightening sensation?quote:You can tell when things feel like they are tightening up

Would you be surprised if I said these things donï¿½t sound like IBS?There is a difference between pain and somatic sensations (meaning someone else could feel them, although there are pure sensations like itching that also count) because they use different nerve pathways back to the brain. And the latter suggest there is something physically happening abnormal inside gut.. Simply run and up the stairs for several flights and you can feel your heart beating through your chest. This is not pain, for example and it correlates very well to what the heart is actually doing.This difference is significant because a large part of what we think is going on in IBS is visceral hypersensitivity, which implies nothing abnormal is happening with the gut's motor behavior.quote:I gotta tell you though I can feel it sometimes jumping around down
I'm not sure how the tigtening sensation is conveyed exactly. I am not so sure it is via pain pathways.quote:is not the tighteneing just a pain of minimal intensity, becuase how would you know it is tightening otherwise ?
