I have always had trouble since an early age with my bowels. However in these recent months i seem to be getting frequent sore stomachs. The pain is high up about 2 inches above my belly button. I seem to have quite alot of flatulence too. It is like a dull ache, like someone is squeezing my stomach. I dont feel sick or have diareha. I was just wondering if this is IBS. Because the pain is higher up that my bowels i didnt think it could be.
I have the same pains...it is almost like cramping, there are times i have to lay down. I have had IBS for a number of years. My major symptoms are stomach pain, severe diarrehha, and frequent going...then I will swing to constipation for a couple of days...on top of that I have Irratible Bladder Syndrome which results in leaking, never being able to empty and night time wetting. Hope yours is not that bad.
