Question
My wife goes thru these spells of horrific pain in her abdomen, stomach, intestines after eating certain foods. I watched a medical show and there was a woman on there that had the same symtoms for years as my wife has. After her going thru this for many years a doctor finally came up with what was wrong with her. They had a name for it but I think I wrote it down wrong. I wrote down entrusseption It had something to do with the small intestines digging into the large intestines at certain time. Can you tell me anything about this condition?
