I have had an endoscopy, ultrasound and similar tests for mu acute gas problem. Now I am getting an unbearable electrical shock-like current passing thru my lower abdomen every now and then. It lasts for a few seconds and then slowly peters off. And the sporadic has become more regular now, specially after meals and when I move. Can anyone tell me what's going on? Is it cause for worry? The pain during those spiking shocks is quite severe.
