I've been googling possible causes, I've talked to my doctor, and I can't figure it out! I've been keeping a food journal and there are no common threads amongst what I eat. I've been purposely mixing it up and changing my diet to try and prevent the pain, but it just won't go away.
Every night around 7 or so, it starts. And it hurts! It's definitely gas pains. It starts in my stomach and moves itself through my digestive tract until I fart or belch it out. But the pain is unbearable. It keeps me awake all night, and getting it to go away usually takes 6 hours or more. I'm up all night walking around, squatting, sitting, laying, curling up, stretching out, and whatever else I can try to relieve the pain but it's persistant. Nothing but time truly makes a difference. Every night for the last 4 nights in a row... and prior to this week, it would occur one or two nights a week. It's getting worse!
My doc just said the usual- avoid high-fiber veggies, acidic fruits and carbonation, coffee, dairy and alcohol around that time. I've been diligent and nothing has budged (in fact it's worse!)...I feel like something is seriously wrong but I can't find a single digestive disease/disorder/virus/infection that matches what I have. There is no dirreah, constipation, vomiting, fever etc to go along with it. Just intense pain throughout my whole torso (even my lower back on the really bad days) that won't go away. It hurts! I hate it! help!!!
