what a relief to find people that I can relate to.
I have recently been diagnosed with IBS and still feel really worried and lonely on what is happening to me.
I have always suffered with bloated belly and trapped wind etc but recently I develped a sharp stitch pain in my left side about
same level as my belly button. I was alo starting to get constipated over a few days. I went to the doctor who gave me laxitives and I went home and the obvious happened. about
1 day later the pain came again and sure enough i couldnt go to the toilet so more laxatives. The pain tends to get worse after eating too much or onions or caffeine - does anyone else get this. Oh and to top it all off I have a sharp pain below my left boob now as I think I strained so hard I have pulled a muscle!
I am now taking buscopan tablets when the pain comes on, I have sore tummy which is bloated and find drinking movocon helps.
I have no blood in my stools and generally feel well apart from the above.
It may help to mention that I have been stressed recently but wondered if this sounds right for IBS?
Any comments appreciated!
