Hell on earth. Sharp horrible pain, that seems like it must be in your stomach, but you really know it's not, seemingly out of the blue and all you can do is close your eyes and take deep breaths like you're in labor until it stops. The first few times I actually thought it was some sort of pulled muscle, but couldn't for the life of me figure out what muscle it could be. I also gave brief consideration to the possibility that I'd been abducted and impregnated by a very mean alien.
