Painful gas/liquid in hepatic flexure, sometimes splenic flexure

I have had this pain for over 6 months. The only relief I get is from taking laxatives and completely emptying myself out.  Whenever there is anything in the area the ruq bend of my colon (hepatic flexure) I suffer from horrible pain. It is so bad it affects my mental state.  The only relief I get is when I press on it, digging deep under my rib, the relief lasts about 10 seconds. I can hear the liquid squishing, and sometimes the pain even radiates down my ascending colon.  I can feel a large moveable lump in the ascending colon sometimes too, which the doctor says is probably gas.  Why isn't my colon pushing this stuff along, and why am I hurting whenever anything is in there?

I've tried increasing my fiber, narcotic pain meds do not help, tramadol helps a bit. Could this be candida?  The liquid sounds almost foamy sometimes when I press deep there.

Occasionally I will get relief when I feel the liquid move from the right to the left a bit, then later sometimes I will even get the ache in my left side (splenic flexure)

I have the same exact symptoms as this person above but I have been to the ER by abulence 3 times in the last week and been hospitalized for one night but noone can figure out what is wrong with me. Terrible lower abdominal cramps and nausea whenever I drink anything.

I went to see my gastroentrologist  3 days ago and he thinks it's Splenic-Flexure Syndrome. What is the treatment for that?
