I was dxed with IBS about 30 years ago, had a lower G.I. done and was having a flare at the time. I get colonostopies done every three years to check for polpys. Gastro also told me I had IBS and Diverticulous.
Yesterday I had a devere bout of IbS, I think I have a permament ring around my butt, it eased up later in the evining, i took metamucil and woke so many times during the night with gas pains and bloating, burping and a feeling I had to go to the bathroom.
When ny IBS gets this bad I get pain in my left side ribs and breasts, right up to the shoulder. Anyone else get this.
I had no problem with IBS for years but it sure has come back. I also have gerd. I still have the IBS oday and lots of abdoiminal action.
