Sometimes when we have pain we tend to use too many dosses of pain killer. I used a lot of advil. I got severe "jolts" of pain that hit...then abated..then stayed around like a "bruise"...down deep. As the bowel moves in waves, like when you swallow, it starts a wave that travels your entire digestive canal, there is an interval between those "jolts" of pain; until the next wave hits. Higher up the intestine the wave is about one and one half minute. Lower down, into the large intestine. the wait can be between three and four minutes. If you have "caused a small sore" by using too many advil, or asperin or tylenol. it may only "jolt" you when the peristalic wave hits that sore. When the powers that be can't find it, experiment on yourself. Stop all pain medication, eat yougurt three times a day, cut off the coke and coffee, and go on a no fiber diet for a little while. If the pain goes away you have solved your problem. The respite will allow your sore to heal and you will avoid what caused the problem. Then you can hit the fiber foods harder and ease back into coke and coffee. Don't forget the healing properties of green tea! Get some quality capsuls of it...it bathes the intestine with proven healing compounds. The sore can occur in any part of the bowel. It can cause bleeding and lead to anemia. If you try this plan, and you still have the pain...then it is not the painkillers causing the problem. Something else to rule out in your search for relief.
