Hi Carson,

It sounds to me like IBS since I have that and those symptoms are typical. I would see a doctor because they can give you pain pills. They will probably do a barium and/or colonoscopy x-ray for preventive measures.

I can just give you my opinion on what I do to handle IBS. I avoid as much dairy products as possible and take otc product called lactaid for any dairy foods. I also take beano for the gas pressure when eating veggies and breads. My alternative to dairy is soy products now. They sound bad but are actually pretty good. They even have cheese slices and ice cream which are pretty darn good. Let me know if these work :)

: HI, I AM A 33 YEAR OLD FEMALE AND I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT IBS. FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS I HAVE HAD A DULL PAIN AROUND MY LOWER RIBS ON MY RIGHT SIDE. I THOUGHT I HAD PULLED A MUSCLE BECAUSE AT ONE TIME IT FELT LIKE A CHARLEY-HORSE RIGHT BELOW MY RIBS AND I HAD TO WAIT UNTIL THE TIGHTNESS RELAXED SO I COULD STRAIGHTEN UP. I RECENTLY NOTICED THAT THE PAIN OCCURS MORE OFTEN IF I HAVEN'T HAD A BM IN A COUPLE OF DAYS. ALSO, I HAD A BAD DAY OF DIAREAHA(SPELLED WRONG) FOLLOWED BY A FEW DAYS OF NOT GOING AT ALL. THIS CYCLE HAPPENS REALLY OFTEN. IF I EAT VERY MUCH ICE CREAM, I REALLY HAVE STOMACH CRAMPS AND CAN'T STAY OUT OF THE BATHROOM. I HAVEN'T MADE A DRS. APPT. YET AND DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF DR. TO ASK. COULD I JUST HAVE A LACTOSE INTOLERANCE PROBLEM? I AM AN ANXIOUS PERSON AND I'M SURE THAT AFFECTS ME. DOES THAT SOUND LIKE IBS? I'M MOSTLY CONCERNED WITH THE SIDE ACHE, I ENVISION A TUMOR OR SOMETHING. THANKS!!!!!!!
