PLEASE HELP ME URGENTLY - SPASTIC COLON CAUSING IMMENSE PAIN
Please help me as soon as possible! I am sitting at work today and I am in excrutiating pain. My spastic colon has flaired up and I am so constipated today, is there perhaps a quick remedy which will help instantly, like in an hour or so?

YCA, I suppose the pain has cleared up by now. You have to remember that this forum is for general medical questions and not for emergencies. Next time it happens you can try taking a strong anti-spasmodic like Buscopan® Co, but it will only work in the short run because it is contra-indicated for long-term use. Good luck.
