Hi...it could be gas, it could be IBS, it could be reflux, it could be spasming..not only in the colon.
It could be anxiety.
I think that it's worth getting checked out, tho....because when we feel symptoms that are difficult to explain...it can wear on our minds and bodies....and cause more anxiety. crazy thinking cycle.
I can, however, relate to how you're describing your symptoms...I've been having something similar, but it feels like my heart is doing wierd things...like it skips beats. It's not anxiety, but the worry of it is causing me some anxiety. I will be seeing my GP on the 17th. I'm pushing for an ECG or whatever general heart test to try and figure out what's going on. As well, i have noticed my reflux has been a bit more obvious..back to zantac.
Hope I/you/we can figure this out because it's not a comfortable feeling.
