Knotted intestines, or intussusception, is a condition where the intestines telescope or collapse into themselves. This is often accompanied by a feeling of crampy, intermittent pain. If the blood supply to the intestine is blocked, the tissue may die, resulting in infection and gangrene. Consult a health care professional.
