How are your bowel movements? Slowed considerably or stopped? If so, don't take any immodium. Sounds like you've got a narrowing or possibly a blockage of the intestine somewhere. If so, you body will let you know as soon as you put food in the stomach by causing pain. If the pain comes in cycles or waves meaning it builds up getting worse and worse then calms down and repeats the cycle again with varying times between them. Then if you don't normally get these I'd strongly recommend seeing a dr. or going to er to get evalulated especially if your not having bowl movements. Call the receptionist at your dr.s and tell her what's going on maybe you can get in earlier. Rob
