Hey everyone!

For the past two weeks, I have had really bad lower abdominal pain along with diarrhea. I had my gallbladder out a year ago and still have some problems so I am on medication for that. I figure it was something I ate that didn't agree with me so I shrugged it off. Well it's been over two weeks. I thought maybe I needed fiber so I started taking fiber gummies which really only constipated me. I have pain in my lower abdomen, back and diarrhea. I have a family history of colon cancer but I am only 30 and there Is no blood in my stool. I am debating whether or not to go see my GI doctor to discuss IBS with him. What do you his think?? Thanks so much!!

You might want to look into iron overload/haemchromatosis/ iron metabolism problems....You are at the age that this shows up......treatable by donating blood and using up stored iron to create new ...ibs is a classic sign/symptom..good luck....

I'm actually on iron because I'm anemic. Hmmm
