Once or twice a year, for no obvious reason I get I guess a stomach ache so intense that it cripples me for hours. It's directly below the center of my rib cage (dont know what thats called) and feels like it's pushing outwards and is so intense that I'm down for hours.

It's not constipation, no issues there, not heart burn, I get that occasionally but I'm a 40 year old guy so that's to be expected.

It's been going on for 3 years now and I'm posting because it happened again on 5/23/15, a couple of nights ago. I can't narrow down if it's food related or not and I have no food allergies.

I just know that each time it gets worse and after I finally get over it my stomach physically hurts to touch. No burping or gas (****s) so I don't believe it's gas.

I went to the emergency room last year but they just plugged in an IV and left me for 5 hours writhing in pain. FAckin' crappy hospitals.

This last time was so intense I swallowed a handful of benadryl to knock myself out. I've never experienced that level of pain in my life.

Any ideas?
