Symptoms of CIP include:
Abdominal Distention/ Bloating
Chest Pain/Esophageal Spasms (may feel like a heart attack)
Decreased or no Bowel Sounds
Inability to pass gas
Diarrhea (less common)
Poor Growth and/or Development (children)
It is not unusual for those with CIP to have other portions of the GI tract also affected; this may include Dysmotility in the esophagus and/or stomach (Gastroparesis) and, for some, includes problems with bladder emptying as well.
