  sad    Ok...This is weird.....
The longer I have this condition,the more weird things I'm discovering about my IBS/Diverticulosis. From what I have learned, these two conditions are usually synonymous with one another,so I'm guessing this has more to do with the Diverticulosis pain and the associated Gurgling/rumblings noises.... 
 
Has this happen to anyone else? ...
       When I get a cramping pain, I can feel around my Pelvic area to find a lump, I guess it's a gas Bubble or liquids traveling through my intestines,but when I massage this lump a little, (it does feel hard and a little tender,) kind of like it something gets trapped then released, I then hear the noises and rumblings,, then there is no longer this lump. It could be on either side of this area.  Upper/lower GI just told me I had GERD, the Colonoscopy told me I had Diverticulosis, these are the only two tests (along with blood tests) I've had. Would an X-ray or ultra sound capture what's going on inside at this time of the lumps?  My GI doesn't know about this recent discovery yet. I am still without medication to help this. Zelnorm is the newest most expensive,but the best relief med out there,without insurance, $200.00 for 60 tabs, I'm stuck in this boat.   I'm finding out that whatever I eat causes this pain,and I've tried Activia and probiotics and just eating Bland foods...I've lost a total of 60 pounds since October.  From a size 42 to a 36..that's the ONLY GOOD THING about this! I wish I had more energy,but this pain feels like someone is beating my stomach with a baseball bat, all the time!!!!!  Thanks!    cool

Hey unhappycramper, As you know, I have diverticulosis also and I don't think that I ever had this "lump" you are describing. I would definitely talk to your doc about this. Take care!

ok...thank you.

   As far as the sharp,deep,excruciating lower extremity pains I get from time to time, someone told me it could be "PROCTALGIA FUGAX" which is the first time anyone put a name to this,but basically," IT IS AN INFREQUENT,SUDDEN,SEVERE PAIN IN THE ANAL AREA OF SHORT DURATION".

Yes, another term for it is rectal spasms and I get them a lot. They are very painful. My doctor has prescribed for me an anti-spasmodic which does relieve the pain for me. You may want to discuss this with your doctor.

It could be a hernia (sp?). But I doubt it, but you never know.

  Has anyone else suffer from these Lumps in the lower region right before the gurgling/Rumblings?
 
First I feel the pain,then sometimes,not alway's,but I can feel and see a Lump in the pelvic area, it might be either side,but it is tender to touch,almost hurtful if you press down hard enough,but after touching,I then hear the gurgling and rumbling noises. Something goes through.   This happens about four to six times a minute. I was going to see my GI doc about this,but what can she do ?
Just as long as this intestine doesn't rupture. nono not knowing how pliable these organs are, and if they are able to handle whatever is going through them alright. Gas, Food, both?
