Discussions that mention bentyl

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) board

When I was diagnosed with IBS (at age 14), I had severe right side pain! They thought I had appendicitis at first! Now (at age 39), I tend to get the pain in the left side lower down and all around to my back. You guys should really try Bentyl. It takes away the spasms and what little pain is left after that is bearable and usually short-lived!
I too get sharp, stabbing pains on my right lower side. I thought it was appendicitis too. When I push on it though, ill get a gurgling noise, maybe some gas too. I have done Bentyl but had to stop because it was causing other problems for me-diarhea. Isnt that weird? I didn't think you could get stabbing pain with IBS but I guess it is kind of common?
