Hey swelling buddy. Good to hear from you. I always thought I was the only one with that problem. The doctors always seem to "give up" on me. They tell me all they can do is put me on different pills and let them know how they work. I don't want to be their lab rat. I understand when you say you can't relate to anyone. That's what I have problems with. I am left with no friends since I refuse to run out and get drunk everynight. Therefore, I also have no one to talk to. Anyhow, enough of that. I had seizures for quite a while and they always told me they were in my head also. But then, years later, they figured out I really did have a problem. So don't let them make you think you are nuts! Keep faith and do the best you can to make yourself happy. Stress triggers my colon to do a lot of bad things. If you can be stress-free it is amazing the difference it can make. Also, a diet helps (but I am far from figuring that out yet). I work all the time, so don't eat healthy. When my stomach acts up (which is all the time) I don't like to eat at all, so doctors say to eat anytime I can. I'll get that figured out one day. I used to go to the gym and do kickboxing a lot, but am working 2 jobs and don't have time right now. For my colon, they said it was something I was probably born with. They said they could go in and cut half my colon out, so it is the normal length and then try to straighten it, but they think that will be harder on my body than to just "learn to live with it". My pain normally hits around that area. I feel like there is a midget with a dagger stagging me on the inside. It hurts so bad it makes me want to vomit. There have been numerous times the pain so sharp my legs gave out from under me. Normally, after the pain gets so intense, it spreads across my stomach and up my back. But, to answer your question, yes, the pain does circulate around that area. The doc told me that was because it was swollen, inflamed and full of poo and that is such a tight spot in the body that it hurts cause it is sort of "smooshed". There's not enough room for it to swell the way it wants to. I have had it swell so bad it pops my hips or back out of place as well. Sorry, I'm not trying to tell you horror stories, just sharing and maybe you can relate. Take care of yourself o)
