Sharp Pains in Colon?
I've been having occasional sharp (shooting) pains in my colon (or bowels?) for several months now. They are uncomfortable, and this morning I actually woke up to the same shooting pain in that region. I don't understand because there are times where I won't feel the pain for weeks, and then today, all of a sudden, it was the worse than it's ever been. The pain is very sudden and sharp, and it doesn't last very long at all. But it's still enough to get me concerned, as I never felt this sort of thing before. Again, it usually goes away after a bowel movement.
What do you think this could be? I fear that I could have colon cancer. I'm a 22 year old male, who works out at the gym very frequently and I always watch what I eat... I never eat any junk food, chips, pop, etc.
Thanks in advance.
