Unhappy I think I have IBS

Hello everyone...

I'm not a Dr. but I do believe I have IBS. If I can remember correctly I was tested for this...I had a colonscopy done and MRI...but I don't recall anything being done about it. Well...This past month I have had 4 major painful stomach attacks...I'm tossing and turning trying to think what this pain could be...I know it's not my appendix...they're gone...I don't believe it to be my gull bladder...not the right area...I'm not sure if it might have something to do with my ovaries or what...this pain is just below my belly button in between my hips right above the pelvis area...I kills me so bad...I roll up into a ball...feel so hard but can't go to the bathroom...I've never been one to eat the right way...I do sometimes make very nice dinners...had some wonderful cauliflower the other night...then next night ...BAM...I had a major attack...Anytime I eat within 15 min. I'm in the bathroom removing what I just put in...Does this make sense? I made an appt. with my OBGYN but thats not until July...Should I bother with this because there really isn't anything they can do for it anyways...Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: I think I have IBS


It sounds like you go to one doctor after another and they have nothing to say? Did your GI specialist not tell you that the problem was IBS? Can you not ask the GI specialist what it is and what he/she can do to help you? Or you can ask your GP if you did your exams with the GI through consultation with your GP - he/she should be able to find out what the GI specialist said they thought it was.

Usually if it is IBS, they can do something for you - at least mine prescribed me some dicetel, which worked fine for me for a while.

Well, I hope others on the board might have something wise to add.

Cheers, Raju.

Re: I think I have IBS

I think its a good idea you go to your gyn to rule out any possibilities it could come from ovaries. After that then stick your gastro doc or your family doctor to see if he can put you on a drug that works. Hope you get better, we know how terrible this ibs is.
