This is INSANE. Please someone help?
« on: December 21, 2013, 11:26:54 AM »
This morning I woke up feeling fine, and after lunch I started getting smelly gas, but hadn't eaten anything to cause that..
Then I started to get severe cramps in my lower abdomen, that felt like dierheaa cramps, but I've ha a bowel movement and it was normal!!

I still have these cramps now.. They feel just like dierheaa cramps, but without the dierheaa
What could this be???

Are you expecting your period?  I've mistaken one kind of cramp for another many times.

I don't know where you live, Hannah, but there's a horrible stomach virus going around.  My husband had stomach cramps but ended up sick to his tummy instead of diarrhea.  Several families I know had both and other's had fever and cramps. It lasts 24 hours to 4 days according to doc.

Hannah, this sounds very much like IBS to me, especially the cramps that are relieved by having a bowel movement. That is actually textbook IBS, and it's VERY, EXTREMELY common with anxiety. Oh, and it's also completely harmless. :)

In case anyone is still confused:  googling your symptoms will cause you to remain in a state of extreme anxiety. Stepping away from the internet is the first step toward lasting peace.
