I'm at a loss, and doctors cannot tell me much until I see a neurologist, so since there are so many IBS'ers here, I wanted to see if anyone has ever experienced anything like what I'm going through.
I've had C/D alternating a bit, but that's been going on for months if not longer. What's new is some back pain. In some ways, it seems like tenesmus - in that it can feel a bit like a urge to go to the bathroom. But this waxes and wanes with a dull pain that is more centralized on my tailbone, than on any part of my GI tract.
Further, I've made huge dietary changes over the past month, and to some extent have the c/d under control. However, I still have this chronic feeling of pain and tension in my lower back. It seems to be the worst from moving around - I spent most of the afternoon laying on a couch, and at a certain point, really thought I didn't feel any pain at all. I've since gone to a grocery store and then come home, and I have pain, it feels like, about a centimeter away from my tailbone.
If this is "just" IBS, I'm goign to have to learn to live with it, but I guess I'm a bit concerned that it could be something else. Can anyone relate to this kind of pain?
Additionally, I've been feeling sort of "punky" on and off. Like I'm sick, but I don't have a fever or cough.
Sorry for all the question threads, I am, as always, scared and confused.
