Helen- I don't know if it will help, but I have constant crampy abdominal pain 24/7. I have sharp pulling pain up where my ribs come together, which I believe is from my laparoscopy in October'01, those are adhesions that cause the pain I used to have with my old adhesion problems- (sharp pulling).This constant crampy, sometimes severe pain is awhole new ballgame for me. My pain ( I believe they call it break-through pain) is severe in the early evening and at night. I hope this will help. I saw Dr. Diamond, an adhesion expert, he told me he believes my pain is caused by adhesions.
