It's like... right in my middle.... above the belly button. This is unusual... usually, pain for me either occurs all over my tummy or right at the right side....

This pain has been kind of off and on the past month or so... Usually if I stretch... but it goes away quickly afterwards, so I didn't think anything about it.... But... now... It's not going away, and I'm not stretching.... Maybe its unrelated to the whole stretching thing... Maybe its like... regular tummy pain? Like... maybe a flu symptom or something? *I did have a cold....*

I hope its not Crohn's related... :(...

How are your bowel motions, Celey? Are you still constipated, or has all that settled down?

And I seem to remember that you are taking regular pain meds: are you having these pains while taking your meds, or only when they've worn off?

I still have some tramadol left over.... But I haven't take any at all this year.... and my bowel movements have been doing pretty well... *I get a couple of constipation periods every now and then... but it seems to resolve itself after a while*

I haven't had any constant pain in my tummy like this, this year, either (I've had a few minor pains here and there, but nothing I worried about. This hurts a little too much for me to ignore, though).... So... It just seems really weird... and it's not in the usual place I have tummy pain (on the right side or all over...)... So... I'm confused...

I'm going to go to bed soon... I think I'll try laying down with a heating pad for a little bit before I go to sleep (Not to worry, I know better than to sleep with a heating pad on).... Hopefully, that'll help alleviate the pain...

Okay... Forget laying down...:S... I dunno what I'm going to do about going to sleep tonight unless the pain lets up... *It seems to hurt worse when I'm laying down...*

Hey Celey can you describe the pain a little more? Does it come in crampy waves around the belly button area? Are you able to pass stool or gas? If it is coming in waves and you are unable to have a bm or pass gas, it could be a obstruction and I would head straight to the ER. But gas pains can be very painful too, so that is another possibility. When I have gas pain I use GasX and that really helps alot.

I had a very crampy gut yesterday, and I think that was just caused by stress. Sure hope you are feeling better this morning. Do keep us posted on how you are doing.

I am feeling much better today... No crampy waves... just like a constant ache... with some sharp stabs.... And I have been able to burp.... so... that's good....

Maybe it was just gas....

Yeah I have had a bad gut myself since yesterday. Really bad cramps I thought this morning was the beginning of a obstruction, but it seems a little better now. I think it was a little bit of gas maybe.

Glad you are doing better.
