My doc dx'ed me with IBS just off symptoms. I've never had tests done. But my mother swears up and down that my symptoms started after I hefted a super heavy recliner and that it's a hernia. I started researching it today, because I'm miserable and IBS doesn't "fit".
I have a TON of gas. All the time. No matter what I eat/don't eat. It never seems to make a difference. I do NOT have the severe C or D of IBS, occasionally I will get one or the other, but never more extreme than most people. I have acid reflux, that I didn't have prior to lifting the recliner. My stomach hurts to push on it sometimes. A lot of abdominal pain with the gas, going up into my chest and just a horrid pressure feeling until the gas is relieved.
The dx of IBS was kinda tossed on me as it being a "side dish" of fibromyalgia. Now I'm second guessing my doc. Has anyone ever had a hiatal hernia? Are the symptoms I'm having more like a hernia? Or IBS?
I'm not procrastinating----I'm still doing yesterday!!!!
I have no medical training, any medical opinions expressed in my posts are just that....opinions.
