Hi everyone: For the past few months, I've been experiencing an almost constant, persistant, low-grade dull pain in my admominal area just below my belly button area and to the sides. My admomen feels irritated and vaguely tender. Sometimes I do have a violent bm with lots of cramping but that passes as soon as the bm is over then its back to the low-grade dull pain. Can this be IBS?
Hi islandgirl, that sounds like IBS I discribe my pain as someone putting salt on an open wound my colon is always so tender and after I have a BM I have a dull ache until I eat again then it starts all over.
Yup ive had ibs since i was 17 im 46 now ,and its been pure hell.I can be home and feeling fine most of the time.But even at home i can eat something that will set me off.The real problem is when i go out,I feel like i have to use the potty .I try to go but nothing happens.I can be out eating somewhere doesnt matter what im eatng and bam i got to run to the potty.Just bout ruined my life brokeup my first marriage.Been a nightmare ever since.
