Has anyone felt intense bowel pain, as if they were twisted?

Have COPD sufferers felt like their bowels are twisted vertically down the center of your abdomen? I have worked on this same theory for 3 years now. I need information from people who have felt the slow progression of this condition.

    Hi shwifter
    I’m sorry that you are going through that, it sounds miserable and so painful. Have you talked with your doctor? Some of the medications can cause constipation and more. Bowels can have a major affect on your whole body and there can be different causes for what you are experiencing.
    Drinking water is so very important for your body and bowel health. Do call your doctor. Please, let us know what you find out.

    Have a breathe easy night.

    Hi shwifter and thanks for your post. I see that Janet has provided a good reply for your concerns. I, too, am concerned that your condition has persisted for 3 years, as you’ve mentioned. I concur with Janet that with the symptoms you’ve described (a vertical ‘twising’), you really should have this evaluated by your medical team. Please do check back and let us know how you’re doing. All the best, Leon (site moderator)
