My son, sixteen, started having these spasms recently. He has had a few bouts with it over the past month, as recently as today. All seems to be normal at the doctor. He woke up before me and chose to lay in pain on the couch. His stomach wall was extremely tight, he had difficulty breathing and talking. I discovered that massaging his mid to low back, while he was standing but bent over, seems to relieve the pressure on his chest and abdominal area. I also told him to remain standing and to walk around for the next several minutes. Initially the pain was so intense that he said he would rather die that have to put up with it. After using these measures the pain subsided within about 15 minutes. Last night he ate hot wings, the time prior was similar greasy foods. Seems to be a corilation between food ingested and this type of pain. He too has had GasX and Tylenol which also seem to ease the pain. It's tough when it seems like everything is normal medically and without warning you or someone you love is writhing in an unbearable, unexplainable pain. Well wishes to anyone going through this.
I have the EXACT symptoms, have not have an episode in 1 year and in the last 2 weeks I have had 2. have you had any luck figuring our what it is?
If anyone has ANY ANSWERS to these episodes, please HELp - I have had every test and my gallbladder removed thinking it would be the answer but the attacks continue, I do think some doctors look at me like I am crazy b/c nothing shows up on test but the pain is unbearable!
i FEEL LIKE AT i AT THE END OF MY ROPE AND i AM ONLY 35 AND DO NOT WANT THIS TO CONTINUE FOREVER!
NEED ANSEWERE ASAP - PLEASE
I also experience the same thing. I am 28 yrs old, and feel this just odd ache/discomfort in my ribs on the right side seems underneath or somewhere in that area, I have also been experiencing EXTREME EXCESSIVE gas in my stomach for 4 months, seeing gastro friday, no matter what I eat, drink i developed excessive gas, sounds like ym stomach farts half the time and most times feels like there are little bubbles in there 24-7 some sound lime water bubbles, its so odd, anyone have had this?
Just call me twiddle dee, I really have no idea what causes these spasms...it feels like a gas contraction inside my stomach left side under the rib cage. Its like it has needles! I know buscopan really is effective and works in minutes but can someone have a medical explanation why people have these kind of spasms. As much as you want to let it out thru "farting" *LOL* its not working.
Normally I experience this while Im inside the classroom almost everyday. What could be the reason? Is it because of something we eat? Can someone please help to avoid having spasms? I have this since I was a kid. It also feels like you have bloated stomach. Thanks a lot!!!
