i developed it before my middle daughter was born i threw up the whole pregnancy me and the toilet were best friends 24 hours a day. it seems to be worse now, i mean when i got to go i better go soon as, i am experiencing bloating all the time and i hate it, its not like you want to be bigger than you already are, also i have gas problems and burping its embarrassing to say, i also am having bad pain under my right ribs it is on my back and up to my shoulder, they have done blood work and my liver are up there, 4 times tested, the last time it was a little lower, so what do you think of my symptoms.

I've never know vomitting to be a common symptom of IBS, not saying that it can't happen but I would go in for more than just blood work, I'd be getting stool samples checked and a endoscopy (since you're vomitting) and probably even a colonoscopy and upper GI your issues could be something other than IBS, possibly along the lines of IBD or something.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Sometimes people never quite return to normal after a sister, for instance, had always been somewhat loose-stooled until she had her second baby, and now relies on Miralax to get her going! She thinks it's temporary, and hopefully it will be...but the hormones go all over the place during pregnancy and can really fool around with your GI system. If your liver enzymes are elevated it would be a good idea to abstain from any alcohol or NSAIDs (like ibuprofen or acetominophen) for 2-3 weeks and get them checked again. Liver enzymes are whacky and hard to really put a finger on sometimes unless there is a solid pattern or they are grossly abnormal. So in the meantime I wouldn't worry too much about those. But have you had an abdominal ultrasound? This would give them a chance to check out your liver, gallbladder, pancreas, etc. and is very non-invasive.

Let us know how it goes...we're here to listen!
