Does anyone have chronic and somtimes severe stomach pain? I was given many explanations from doctors, from Crohns to IBS to Ulcers and othe diseases. For the last 12 months I have been having this pain in my stomach that just will not go away. Some days are worse than others, but I can always feel it, no matter what. I would be interested to hear any others who have the same problem and what you guys do to help relieve the pain.

Many thanks,
Rob

Ya, they checked for gastroparesis. I don't have it. They pretty much checked for everything and the docs think I might have IBS, which is apparantly hard to diagnose somtimes, because nothing shows up wrong in the testing for it. I guess it's more of a functional disease, rather than an actual physical malfunction.
Have had Mild/Severe Stomach/Abdominal pain for the last 12 months. Made a few trips to the ER for the pain. Have had no other syptoms of Crohn's or IBS that are typical. All tests showed nothing. Hernia surgeon thought it was a hernia. Went for Hernia Surgery (for nothing). After recent Colonoscopy, GI thinks its most likely Crohns, becuase of inflamation he saw in small Intenstine (but not 100% convinced yet). Going for the Camera Pill test next month. Tried Pentasa and Entocort for 6 weeks; both of which havene't done much to reduce this chronic-never-ending pain. Saw a different GI last week for a second opinion and he thinks I might have IBS, so for the past week I've been taking Hyoscyamine, Nortriptylin and Citrucel (of which aren't helping as of yet)

I did have stomach trouble but not as bad now. The acidophilus, cayenne, hawthorne berry capsules really help alot.
 I could literally feel like things were moving in my stomach and even turning , etc
