i have. i've been on endone (oxycontins) since march for the pain. its horrible. at night in bed i dare not move at all. always on my back. if i turn to either side it just hurts so bad (and i have to go straight to the can). the pain is in the same spot as you just under the belly button, as well as my lower left side.
i went to hospital as well (for a week), but i am in middle of a severe left sided flare. Which only a month to a year ago was severe colitis in my entire colon. so it has half healed, but the pain is still there.
from march to about a month ago, the pain was there all day long and constant. hence the pain killers. i was in bed for like 3 months.
not as many times during the day, but at least 3-4 times it is excrutiating and i have to stop what im doing.
at the moment im thinking it is poo or gas in there and my colon is not liking ANYTHING touching it, even air. i can feel the pain move.
but since i have had this pain for so long, maybe its different than yours. are you in a flare right now?
