If you are having terrible pain in your intestines in the same spot, it is time to go see your GI doctor and get it properly evaluated for your safety.

A stricture is a narrowing of a tube.  it is usually referring to the esophagus (throat) or the urethra (the tube where pee comes out).  Technically, any tube could have a stricture.  And a polyp, tumor, Chrohn's, diverticulitis, constipation, etc could cause a stricture or narrowing.

 

You can't diagnose yourself with a stricture of your intestines or colon.  A GI would find it with different tests including a barium enema with xray, CT scans, colonoscopy or endoscopy.

If you already knew this, what are you asking? Sorry.   I thought you didn't know what they are.  

 

Well, as you know, a stricture could be caused by many things.  If they are caused by things like diverticulitis, they might come and go, I would guess.
