    Self-diagnosis or comparing your symptoms to others is not the best way to go. If you have severe stomach pain, see a doctor (preferably a gastroenterologist) and have tests done to see what the root of the problem is.

    I sometimes experiernce gut pain as well (weak stomach in general, plus I am lactose intolerant and wheat intolerant). I control my stomach issues with a proper diet and herbal supplements + acupuncture. I'm not one to medicate myself for pain, but realize everyone is different. Pain is the body's indicator that something is wrong. Taking meds (vicodin, muscle relaxers, etc.) is only a temporary fix; not to mention strong pain-killers can be damaging to other vital organs like your liver and kidneys.

    If your stomach problems persist after a recent trip to a foreign country, SEE A DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY. You could have a parasite or other micro-organism that is making you ill.

    Be well... :)

      Or you know, "What's that noise? I hope it's not a guy standing the living room with a gun. Honey, go check." I need to stop watching Lifetime or the WE channel.

      This thread actually makes me feel better....or more normal.
      that is funny! i do the same sort of stuff. like "oh, what was that noise? do you think it's that crazy neighbor creeping around outside?!"
