As Nanners said I have been going through a similar thing. I tend not to go to the hospital because I have the pain meds at home and I know when I am getting in to trouble. As long as I can keep liquids down, I figure I have a better cable system and its easier on my family. But my doctor wanted me to keep track and let him know if it was happening more than 5 times in a year. Well it happened about 10 times in 5 months, the last 4 times happened within 2 weeks and the very last one went on for 5 days and I did end up in the hospital.
The hard part is that all the test show nothing conclusive. So the best "guess" is that it is adhesions. The only way to know for sure is to do surgery which of course will/can create more adhesions. But whatever was all kinked up seems to have settled down a bit for me because the last spell I had was in April, so I'm keeping everything crossed and hoping that I can make it through the summer before the next bout sets in.
As Nanners said, I too keep to a very low residue diet, but even that doesn't always seem to be enough to help. That really makes me think that its adhesions and not some narrowing that they just aren't seeing.
It is rather trying when you never know when it will hit and how long it will last. I hope you can find some answers and get some relief and Welcome.
