“A deep, horrible, sustained pain…”

The pain of OIC left Elaine lying on the floor in agony, before she was eventually admitted to hospital.

Elaine calls the pain of her OIC “the scream pain” as it’s so unbearable she could, quite literally, scream. Her pain has reached such levels that she has ended up lying in the floor in agony. This has lead to Elaine being hospitalised on more than one occasion. Here she shares her experience of life with OIC.
