Severe gas pain from my belly button to pelvic bone
Wakes me from sleep. It will take about three hours to get the gas out through burping, diarrhea and passing gas in the bathroom. I am skinny and I can push my stomach, below my belly button in remote areas or lay on my stomach using a pillow to jam into my stomach to ease the pain and promote releasing the pain for a moment or two after forcing out a small amount of diarrhea. The pain returns quickly after a stool and the process is unbearable. I have this problem 1-3months apart and I can't pin down behaviors or food intake which led to the hours of attempting to extract gas and stool to stop the pain. I've had this happen since I was old enough to remember and I'm thirty years old with the condition only getting more consistent. I've studied many materials but I have no other symptoms besides the gas pain and diarrhea which after hours of trying to get it all out, it ends. I'm convinced I won't get to the bottom of my problem. Doctors can't give me answers and diet and stress seem to be of no relation to the condition. It just happens, beats me down and disappears. Can anyone help me iioiiout?

Can anyone help me iioiiout?Unfortunately I'm of no help BUT I have the same exact issues. Instead of being every few months apart it's been almost a year since my last episode. I went through NUMEROUS doctors appointments and even a colonoscopy and I'm only 20. The pain is unbearable. It starts out as severe sharp pains in the abdominal area and then it feels like a huge gas bubble spreading throughout my stomach and it's a lot of pressure. The pain along with the pressure makes it hard to breathe like I'm going to faint. And then if it comes down to diarrhea, which most times it does, the pain is just awful and indescribable. Have you ever been in so much pain your mouth waters? Well that's what happens to me along with just about passing out. I don't know if you've ever passed out or come close to it before but your vision kind of goes black and that's what happens to me. Well today the pain comes back and I don't want to waste time with doctors anymore. Have you found anything that helps or even a specialist or anything? Or any update on your case?Unfortunately I'm of no help BUT I have the same exact issues. Instead of being every few months apart it's been almost a year since my last episode.
