| | IBS or appendix
I am probably worrying needlessly, but there seems to be no end. I saw my GI doc several weeks ago for abdominal pain. Have ulcers before and he felt that it was it again. Well the meds helped with the pain below breastbone (most of the time). But still continue with pains lower. Now I am taking Bentyl for the IBS. But, I am still having pain in my right side at end of rib cage. This is getting worse. I have changed my sleeping position, am taking my meds and eating Metamucil wafers. This pain is nearly all the time. This morning it was stonger. I am to see the doc on 9/29 for followup. I hate to call him again since it is not bad enough to go to ER and I do not have fever. But, I have come very close to going to ER. Could thi still be IBS? If it were appendix wouldn't there be fever? Thanks.
