Last year (late spring/early summer) I started having occasional "episodes" of extreme back pain (severe tightness along the whole back) and really bad, painful stomach cramps. It felt like someone was squeezing my insides really tight. It brings me to tears when the pain is at its worst. Last june I had an attack so bad in the middle of the night that it woke me up and I had to go to the emergency room. They took x-rays, but couldn't find anything to explain it. They just sent me home with some flexeril and some other pain killer. I've had a few more attacks like this of unbearable pain in my back & stomach since then. They did stop from about october until I had another one about a week ago. The attacks come on very suddenly with no warning. I took a flexeril the other night when it started up again, but the pain still lasted for about an hour and a half and then it just goes away. During the pain though, it feels like I need to go to the bathroom because of the stomach cramping, but i'm unable to go until the pain goes away. Any ideas what might be bringing this pain on? I know I need to go to the doctors, I was just wondering if anyone else ever experienced anything similar to this.
