hip pain with ibs??

i have most of the symptoms of ibs...lots of gas especially right after eating, very inconsistent bowel movements, sudden urges to go, sometimes i go days without going and when i do it is a struggle. i have been having discomfort in my hips/pelvic area ever since my bowel habits have changed. i am worried that it may be something else, but i dont know what else it could be. i am wondering if anyone else has experienced a dull pain in the hip/pelvis because of ibs. its not a sharp pain, but rather a dull annoying feeling...almost like pressure on the hips, usually on the right side. please let me know if you have experienced this type of pain! thanks a bunch.

Re: hip pain with ibs??

yep. actually all up inside of my pelvis area. in fact, at first i thought it might be ovarian cysts... but after ruling that out, i have to do additional testing eventually.... i was hoping it was something gyno. so that i could start treatment right away...but no, i have yet to figure out what the heck is making my bowels stop up.

i also have excess gas, especially after eating and in the evening time. and sometimes i do suddenly need to go... and often it's a hard struggle, esp. in the past 2-3 months.. i don't think it can get much worse.. haven't had a BM in about 4 days now and the last ones hurt so bad. i was afraid that i would have to give myself an enema like i did once before. i hate that!

I also have pain in my hips and pelvic area, and have been diagnosed with probable IBS. Boy that problem can mess you up!

Re: hip pain with ibs??

hugeworrywort, first thing I would do is see your dr. about this. Get a full check up to make sure that you are fine. If you have not been to the OBgyn lately I would get a checkup with them and make sure you have a clear papsmear and that any problems you had prior are ok now. If you notice that your eating habits have changed start writing down what you eat and the times and what you feel when it is happing.

Are you pregnant that you know of? That could aslo change your eating habits and cause pain. From other posts that you have written I would make sure you see the dr. and dont put this off honey. feel better.

Re: hip pain with ibs??

I have IBS and definitely deal with the pelvic and hip pain. I did have an ovarian cyst that finally resolved itself which has helped somewhat but when the IBS flares, the pelvic pain is definitely there. I'm not sure if the hip pain is due to IBS or something else. I had a bone density scan done for the first time this year and found out that I have mild osteopenia in my hips. I chose to continue my impeccable diet but added better supplementation and increasingly more challenging exercise and strength training to my daily routine. Since I started exercising and weight training seriously and consistently, my hip pain is almost gone. Hopefully my bones are improving too! We will see in a year. I would see your doctor to rule out anything serious and then make sure you are on a good eating, supplement, and exercise plan if you already aren't. Blessings - jrose
