Why does diarrhea / gas cause crippling pain?

In: 521

Because gas, which often developes with diarrhea, distends your intestines. While your intestines can be cut wide open without you feeling it, they are sensitive to pressure increase, which is causing the pain you are experiencing.

Others explain why there’s pain, but if it’s *crippling* pain, you should see a doctor. It shouldn’t be that severe. You could have something more serious going on.

Crippling!?! It doesn’t…. It shouldn’t. Or am I just lucky to have only ever had moderate discomfort?
