    IBS or cancer?

    Going through a hellacious time right now. I'm a 52 year old male, and an admitted cyberchondriac. I've been going through a pretty nasty bout of IBS, with alternating diarrhea and constipation, loss of appetite, muscle and body aches and pains, and something pains in my upper abdomen under my ribs, mostly on the right side. Here's the thing, my dad passed away from pancreatic cancer 20 years ago, and it's always been a huge fear of mine.
    I'm not experiencing many of the signs of PC, like jaundice, back pain, or vomiting, but it's not easing my mind. My doc says it's not cancer, and I had lots of blood tests, even a CT scan of the abdomen back in November when I was experiencing major IBS flare. It was clear.
    I'm at wits end. Another doc appointment today, but I feel like I'm becoming a burden to her. Anyone else get random muscle pains and sharp pains, sometimes burning at the top of abdomen bottom of the ribs on the right side? Sometimes in the center of the abdomen at the bottom of the sternum?
    I've been reading similar stories but hope to hear from some other sufferers...

    Since your pain is in your right upper abdomen, has your gallbladder been checked?
