My mother has been suffering from a periodical, frequent and severe lower abdominal pain. She is about 49 year old now. Generally the pain starts between 5AM-9AM in the morning and this occurs around once a month.

She can not speak or maintain the standing posture while experiencing the pain. She was dignosed earlier by multiple gyneacologists. According to the suggestion she was operated to remove her uterus in 2003. But the pain has been recurring with the same severity and randomness. Her pain is generally pasified in 3 hrs after she takes the Spasmoproxivon pill.

She doesn't report any other condition along with the pain. She is very normal after that pain goes away.

  • Do the symptoms worsen with her bowel movements? She may have adhesions (scar tissue) that has wrapped around her bowels or other organs. This can cause severe pain so bad that you can hardly breathe. Does it hurt in one area when you push on her stomach or lower abdomen?Janet Lewis, RN MSN

  • The pain generally lasts for 3hrs.She has not gone through the ultra sound recently. It was long time ago in early 2007.Yes she feels more pain when she is in standing posture. Generally as soon she feels the pain she is down on the bed.
