When this happens to me, it is gas that hasn't moved on down the intestinal tract. I get this pain very frequently and it stinks! Sometimes it helps me to lie down, flat on my back, with a heating pad on where hurts the most. Then I wait, usually I can actually feel the gas moving on through. Don't know if that's what's going on with you, but that is what it is for me. Hope you feel better very soon!
