Fot the last 2 years I have suffered abdominal pain which is frequently intense. I have had scopes put in both end but there is nothing to be found to explain these pains. My doctors now suggest that it is all down to my diabetes and my poor control oof it, I have a sweet tooth you see. My diabetic consultant says he has never heard of such pains in all his 20 years experience. Does anybody here have anything similar? At times I wish I could die as I do not feel I can take all this pain much longer. Thanks for your comments everyone. Brenda

Hello Brenda - welcome. Pain such as you describe is not something I have any experience with personally, so I'm going to step aside for others to respond . . . I just thank you for joining us, and hope you are able to find the cause of such acute distress.

If you feel that you would like to get better control of your diabetes, we may have suggestions for helping you gain that control.

take care,

They could be referring to autonomic neuropathy problems. Most people are aware of peripheral neuropathy that affects the feet mostly. But there is something called autonomic neuropathy where there is damage to nerves related to the digestive system. This can cause gastroparesis (where the stomach empty too slowly) which can make you feel bloated and "full" for a long time after you eat. Gastroparesis can also cause wild swings in your blood glucose. It can also cause constipation and diarrhea. Damage to nerves around the esophagus can cause difficult or painful swallowing.

Not saying this is what is happening to you....but it might be what they are referring to.

Sorry to hear you are having these pains. Can you give a little more information. What are you eating for your meals and snacks when these pains happen. I have fructose intolerance and lactose intolerance and when I eat anything with fructose or drink or eat anything with lactose ie milk I get horrible stomach pains which is caused by the pocketed gas pains. Ask to be tested for both Fructose Intolerance and also Celiac Disease which means your body doesn't tolerate gluten which is found in things like wheat and other grains, etc. I hope you are able to get a diagnosis and relief.
