I have major abdominal pains along with back pains which spreads through out my shoulders and lower back. I become catatonic and immobile when the attacks happen. I've had these attacks for sometime now, maybe around 7 years. Last year was horrible with attacks every 2 months or so, I went to the ER three times. Docs can't seem to figure out what it is. I've gotten every test except for colonoscopy and everything comes out negative. I just wanted to tell everyone what I do to help me get through the night. I have a massaging chair that works on my back and I get a heating pad to heat my tummy and my back. I guess it's the muscle spasms that starts after the tummy ache which is so debilitating for me. I don't take any meds because it affects my tummy. The problem started 7 years ago with a sensation that I swallowed a golf ball and it got stuck right in the center, under the sternum. I couldn't breathe very well and couldn't wear anything too constricting. It was very uncomfortable but not painful for about a year or two when it turned into this pain that I cannot even describe. I guess closest description would be that it feels like someone is squeezing it. If anyone else has had similar experiences, maybe even a resolution, I 'd love to hear from you,
