: I've been having severe stomach attacks for years now, that the dr's cannot seem to diagnose. The pain starts in my stomach, then radiates into my chest and upper back, very similar to the "Gastro Attack" message posted. It is extremely hard to breath and I double over in pain, I've never vomited, nor get diarriah, yet the dr's said "IBS". This "attack" used to occur every 4-5 months; however are more frequent now. Ruling our sever reflux esophogitis, and ulcers; I heard these symptoms may be related to the Pancreas. Any comments/suggestions?? Thank you.
I have had IBS for 22years and I have never had any chest or back pains from it. To me, it sounds like your doctor might ought to explore the possibility of a gallbladder problem. I have a sister who has experienced your type of pain from gallbladder.
