That sounds like the pain I get. Waves of pain that seem to be in my stomach. I believe it's because of the inflammation in my colon and small intestine, trying to push stuff through there. I'll be tender to the touch for days after a bad flair. I was hospitalized once for it and it took Diluadid to take the pain away, but I usually take Bentyl and lortabs (which I have to start early or it won't work). You did the right thing going to the ER, I'm hoping you feel better soon.
