Bowel spasms?

For months now I have had almost constant pain in my lower left abdomen; I have had gynae issues in the past, but these have been ruled out by ultrasound.

I’ve suffered with MS-related constipation, but I feel like I’m on top of that after modifying my diet (drinking more water, getting my oats (alas, just the cereal kind), excersizing, massaging my abdomen). I “go” either every day or every other day. However, this pain still exists, and I wondered if your colon can spasm and cause pain? I hurts constantly.

Any thoughts?

With thanks

Hi

yes, your colon can spasm. I have had these for 8 years and have had a couple of colonoscopies that have come back clear.

the only thing that works is drinking lots of water & exercise.

all the best
