Exclamation Attention Ibs Suffers!!! I need more REPLYS!!!

I would like to ask you all a question. I am conducting a little study, I greatfully appreciate all responses...

DO YOU NORMALLY HAVE PAIN IN YOUR RIGHT OR LEFT SIDE WITH IBS?


PLEASE RESPOND...

Let me rephrase :

I only want to know if you have pain on the right side or left side of your body. If you want you can post (example) URQ - upper right quadrant or LLQ- lower left quadrant. Or simply just tell me LEFT or RIGHT. I am conducting my own little study. If you have pain on both sides I would like to know which side that you generally have more pain on.

Thanks to all!

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

Normally I have LRQ pain. Sometimes it starts just above my navel then moves to the LRQ.

Hi there - although I can have cramping pain on both sides, it tends to be more in the left lower Q.

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

Thanks for the replys, I thought it might be intresting to see where most IBS suffers exibit their pain.. As for me I also have both sides but mine often tends to be more RUQ pain.

RUQ - right upper quadrant
RLQ - right lower quadrant
LUQ - left upper quadrant
LLQ - left lower quadrant


Hey Ltown what does LRQ stand for? is it lower right quadrant?

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

I have pain pretty much daily in the LLQ. Mine is the D type and is so bad most of the time I have to take pain meds for it. Presently, I'm on Methadone, 180 mgs (plus some others) and I still have pain. I'm also trying to deal with post surgical pain from lung surgery I had. With my chronic pain situation, I am on SS Disability.

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

I also get pain on both sides but its more frequent on the left lower side. I take levsin for this and it works only about half the time

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

Thanks all!
for the replys, this is getting to be quite interesting. When I am done with the study I will post my results..I have a suspicion about this and so far those who have replied are proving that my suspicion is true, we'll see what the out come brings. I am hoping that I can get quite a few people to post on this topic.

thanks again...

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

Hi Everwondering,

I don't quite get pain as much as a light spasm anywhere around my stomach and anywhere around my chest - only for a short while. Of late I've had some pain behind my shoulder blades - my right shoulder blade in the past week in particular. I can't say I've had more pain in any quadrant.

It may not help, but posted it in case it does.

Cheers, Raju.

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

Raju,

Just a question? Have you ever had your gall bladder checked? That is a symptom of GB attacks.. I ask because I am experiencing that same pain as well as others?

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

Hi Everwondering,

You're right - it can be a sign of gall bladder attacks - my doctor did mention that he suspected that might be the problem a couple of years ago.

I have to be honest with you Everwondering - I'm not that concerned about it. I know exactly what causes my pains - My techniques are so highly advanced (although I probably shouldn't mention this). It started about 5 days ago - and I guess I just didn't know how to deal with it then. Its gone now.

Thanks for asking though.

Cheers, Raju.

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

First of all, great question. Mine moves. One day it will start out around the belly button area, then move to the RLQ then one or two days later, belly button, then LLQ. I assume that is trapped gas or something. Sometimes, it does not move and I most often have it in the RLQ.

Re: Attention Ibs Suffers

When I have pain, it's mostly in the RLQ.
