My gastroenteroligist does not believe this pain is digestive tract related. He thinks that if it were, then there would be diarrhea or constipation or longer lasting bouts of pain, cramping...so he is trying a new approach. He is having me try a nerve targetted medication for 4 weeks that may help calm down a misfiring nerve (IF that is what this is). The oncologist said to go ahead and give it a try so I am. It's only been 5 days and no effect yet but it can take a couple of weeks to work and after 2 weeks the dose gets doubled so we shall see. I'm willing to try almost anything at this point, just don't take away my caffeine!
