Curious also - my friend has terrible gut pain. She and others describe a feeling like a fist in the abdomen. I wonder if this could be Bells Palsy related...

ILADS article here. One of my troubling symptoms before being diagnosed. I well remember going for an xray and having the doctor tell me I had not been fasting and why would I not follow the instructions! (I had fasted...but food was not passing properly)

"You do? Great!" Take my picture-It'll give you something to remember me by!

I went to a GI doctor this past Tuesday. He ordered a sprue panel. I told him it feels like I have a bowling ball inside my left abdomen. He thinks I have abdominal wall muscle pain which sounds like Bells Palsy of the gut to me.

He prescribed Flexeril but I haven't filled it yet because I'm not too impressed with the potential side effects it has.

nan, thanks for the link. I'm going to print this article out and give it to my GI doctor, Maybe this will help him.

I had this very severely. It is first beginning to clear now -- I thought it never would. GI docs were mostly useless. Xifaxin helped, as did alinia, but only temporarily. Levaquin was the first thing that helped. It helped quite a bit and may have fixed things, but the doc I was seeing at the time had me go off it in order to do tests. And, after the tests, when I went back on it didn't work any more. LDN relieved some of the discomfort, but didn't fix things. Overall, abx over a long period only made it worse.

There is an excellent article written by Dr Virgina Sherr about Bells Palsy of The Gut. Just google it and the article will come up.

I think it can also be found on lymenet by typing it into search bar,

Here's the link you speak of glm1111. This same article can be found at the link nan posted above. Definitely worth reading for those of us suffering with gut pain.

Thanks everyone!

Is there any specific treatment for it, or is it still abx combos that work?
