Posted this bf -- anyone have aching on both sides of waist, between bottom of rib cage and top of hip bone ? This comes on mostly at night ( which i don't understand )so i never get a good night sleep. Having a BM seems to relieve it for a bit. Have mostly constipation so do only dirbs and drabs until, it seems, I'm so full that my body has to rid itself of the feces. Then i will have 2-4 BMs that day only to start all over again with the constipation. I have been prescribed Bentyl to use 3or 4 times a day, tho I rarely have any continual cramping during the daytime. I did try it about 2 AM. and it may have helped some--for a while. I know that coffee isn't recommended but often it is the one thing that can get some action going in my intestines and result in movement. Recently, am having fine stinging, burning that seems to move around my abdomen with this and I ache in other places. Have Fibro also so perhaps the two are related or overlapping conditions??
