Hi. It's been suggested by doctors that maybe I have IBS but they don't know for sure. Does anyone get cramps that feel like menstrual cramps? That's how it all started out. I would get menstrual type cramps at ovulation along with feeling constipated and congested. I don't know if it would actually be considered constipation or just feeling like it. The cramps would last 7-10 days. Now that can happen anytime. It especially happens if I have restrictive clothing on like blue jeans. Not always but alot of the time as soon as I put them on and sit I get the cramps. If I get up and walk they leave. I will also get alot of rectal pressure sometimes and a feeling of having to have a BM but not actually having one. Sometimes if I eat to late at night the next morning I feel kind of sick and nauseous till I have a BM. Does anyone with diagnosed IBS have these symptoms? I had an ultrasound which was normal. The only other thing I can think of is endometriosis. I don't know if that has all the bowel symptoms. Any suggestions?
Hey just read your post and i too have the exact same symptoms.. im undergoing a series of tests perscribed by my doctor to see if i have IBS or not.. i already had the blood tests done now just waiting for my upper GI and Stool samples... i too myself am wondering if i have it or something else.. its really taken a tole on my life..
I had of this type once..the ibs pain was exactly like menstral cramps. Was like that for a while and was getting desperate. I got rid of it by modififying my diet, that is i started to eat low fat and less red meat. It really went away.
Never suffered from ibs again til now damn it and Im still trying to point out what could possibly be this time. I hope i can get rid of it!
