Exclamation At wits end....chronic pains....passing oil

I went to a specialist about 2 years ago and was told I suffer from IBS. I have always had bad stomach pains and that is just something I have learnt to live with. But over the last 2 months I have started to get horrible pains just underneath where my ribs end. My stools seem fairly normal, but I also pass bright orange oil every now and then. I had samples taken and they couldn't find any infection/traces of blood or anything. I have to go to a specialist but I am afraid they will just tell me there is nothing wrong, as I have been told twice already in the last couple months. Has anybody experienced this before?? what on earth could it be and what tests will find it??

Hi Kate

Have you had your liver enzymes tested and gall bladder?

What you are experiencing can be a sign of liver or gall bladder problems

Thanks for your reply

I haven't had any test like that done. Only my samples that were tested and I think they were only looking for signs of infection and traces of blood which came back negative. I am just fed up of going to doctors and having them do half assed tests and telling me there is nothing wrong. Now they are extremely puzzled, no idea whatsoever. It worries me....

Can it be a serious problem? Or not really...

Hi Kate

i think you need to go and get your liver enzymes checked. this can be done by a simple blood test. I am not sure if it can be serious or not, but i understand how you feel about constantly being told there is nothing wrong, i was in the same position as you for nearly two years. They eventually found out what was wrong and sorted me out.

Oily foods can mean alot of fat is present, this can be due to a high fat diet, gallbladder problems or liver problems.

Don't give up, keep pestering the doctors!

Re: At wits end....chronic pains....passing oil

try to cut out your fatty foods, rich dairy product. You know even Pizza with cheese on it can cause fatty deposits in your BM. I agree with Sharon that you need to get your liver and galbladder checked! Since I found out I have Fatty liver, I'm eating much healthier and I feel much better! It's not perfect yet but I'm working on it! Good luck keep us posted! Toots

Yea but the thing is I have not had any fatty foods whatsoever for months I cut that stuff out before I started passing... oil.

There was blood on the toilet paper yesterday

Guess I will just have to wait and see what my specialist has to say about it

Thanks guys
