Yes, I do believe I know what this is but I still will feel more comfortable with Jess addressing you. When the back arches & you have that swaying motion, it is bloating from gas. I dealt with this phenomenon for the first time a couple of months ago & my good friend Susan from PTSkinks had a wonderful phrase for it & that was 'going vertical'! Usually with a couple of good soaks & rehydration, ( I use pedialyte) the symptons will disappear within 24 hours. Jess says that this condition is painful but I have not ever had to resort to using medication. I have since had 3 other females do this which in turn made me re-evaluate the diet (for the umpteenth time. Interestingly enough, I never had any of my males suffer from this. I hope this help but do wait for Jess.

Good luck,

Sherri
