    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Okay, It doesn't happen very often but when it does its hell. I feel like I am giving birth through my intestines. Can someone please tell me what is going on. Today I had an "episode" that lasted about 30 mins. I can't be constipated because I went this morning.

    Definitely sounds like spasm. Had them at 2am this morning. Mine always result in diarrhea after which I feel 100% better. If no diarrhea I suppose it could be bad gas pains. I have had spasms that are simply gas.

    I get them too.. I pretty much just bear through it, but it definitely feels like I'm having labor pains or something.

    I get them as well...though I'm usually in some sort of pain 80% of the time. Sometimes it's because of spasms, sometimes constipation, sometimes diarrhea, sometimes just food moving through my system...makes me wanna blow my brains out on a daily basis.
