Ok so for like the past few weeks now I have had like severe lower stomach spasms/twitching/fluttering in the same spot pretty much and it’s every single day all day you can even see it sometimes just twitching away and spasms .. it dosent hurt at all it’s very very annoying and now scaring the crap out of me....
I did go to the doctor cuz I have stomach issues and they did ultrasounds of my liver and gallbladder and kidneys all was normal
And then I went to the gi doctor the stomach specialist last week for other stomach issues and he told me I was fine I don’t bring up the spasms though cuz they was t that bad then but he said I was fine and gave me some meds for my acid reflux..

does anyone know if this is serious??? Should I go to the er ?? I mean it dosent hurt but it’s all day long my stomach just twitched away spasms feel like super fast fluttering and it’s in my lower stomach what could be the cause of this I’m freaking out so bad

I would say to call back the GI doctor and let him know you weren't experiencing them so bad when you were there, but you keep having abdominal spasms.

In my case they caused irregularity in my bowel movements. Sometimes I have to run to the bathroom, but I keep forgetting to tell the doctor. I told my previous psychiatrist when it started but it was related to a bad reaction from risperidone. I can't remember all I told her, but she didn't say anything. She was a Nurse Practitioner, not a MD. I've been living with it for months, now, but it is not a constant feeling.

ok so these spasms are typically not life threatening?? They are literally happening as I am typing this it’s so awkward and weird like something is alive in my stomach

I know anxiety can cause digestive problems. I don't know if what you have is fatal.
