Jennifer Lawrence describes her medical condition on David Letterman.

Jennifer Lawrence had a fulcer? That’s what the “Hunger Games:Catching Fire” star told David Letterman last night (Nov. 20). The illness, largely stomach pains, was enough to send her to the emergency room and miss several early morning appearances in New York City.

The feisty actress minced no words in describing her illness.

“I just had this really bad pain for, like, three weeks,” she explained. “And you know you can only sh*t your pants so many times a day before you go to the emergency room, before you’re like ‘I need to go to the hospital.’

“I thought I had an ulcer, but it turns out it was a “fulcer”, she said. “I went to the emergency room.”

The problem was serious enough that she had an endoscopic examination, which required anesthesia and the insertion of a tube down he throat to examine her stomach.

“The last thing I said was, ‘I’m paralyzed!'” she joked. “I dreamed there was a nuclear bomb that went off. And the first lucid conversation I remember having was about the Kardashians.”

The problem was reportedly ascribed to gas. Must be something she ate.
