Friday evening I took two hard capsules. One was a calcium, magnesium, zinc pill, the other a multivitamin, and I took some vitamin C also. All of these together at about 5 to 6 pm. Within 4 to 5 hours my istestinal tract felt like it was being run through with heavy duty sand paper and rubbing against nothing but inflammed walls. It may not have been this exactly but it felt that torturous and that's what I imagined. Was so sick and weak feeling I moaned . On a scale of 7 to 8 on the pain sacle. Years ago I would have gone to ER but after so many visits all I get is psyche ward people. Along with this all my fibro pain in every area of my body increased 3 fold! My bronchial asthma got worse and hurt as did my sinusitis. All over my body these pains hurt worse than they ever have. Scale? 9 ! Head to toe, inside and out. Couldn't sleep a wink! I was crying, literally. Finally I leaped out of bed and staggered to my wife's room at 4 in the morning telling her to get ready to take me to a hospital. Instead she laid with me and calmed me down. I had taken a lorazapam earlier that day but it didn't touch this. When the morning finally came I was still in this same pain and vowed to go to our local ER even though I knew they would call the psych ward first before admitting me. I was willing to go through this as I felt I could pass out. My inner feelings and 4 different areas of pain were so overwhelming me I told my wife, "now I understand why they give dying patients morphine drips." I don't know how much longer I can go on like this. But I am wondering and please...throw in your specualtions about whether you think those hard capsules ( either of them ) could have hit my inflammed middle intestine and thrown my body into acid on inflammation shock! And effected my central nervus system and triggered this explosion of fibro nerve pain all over? I have had this same experience happen before but not "quite" this bad in the last year. I think one was from another incident of swallowing another hard calcium tablet. Is this stuff acidic or something and if you have inflammed intestinal wallls it burns it ino screaming pain? The other time was when I had to swallow that big marble sized camera they give you to do a camera-endoscopy. I swallowed that and I suffered and moaned all night as that thing made it's way though my inflammed intestinal tract. Whew, that was rough. And not one doctor has told me why this pain is so monstrous when stuff like this passes through my intestinal tract. And again, can calcium burn the lining of someone damaged intestinal lining?
