I have read about ibs on the web. I am thinking thatmay be what i have. i have been sick for six months. no diagnoses. the worst is my stomache pain. It feels like my insides are being ripped apart. If you have seen the alien movies i use that as a reference. It feels lilke something is trying to rip open my guts. Does anyone here feel that intense of pain? I really need to know. I know stomache pain is listed as a symptom, but they never explain what. my dr is tryin me on ulcer meds. i really ddont think its an ulcer. the meds dont help. it hurts so bad. Also can you have ibs and spend your time on one side of the spectrum. For me it is constipation 90% of the time. I have tried all of the normal methods of helping to go to the bathroom. nothing really works. at one time i was taking ex lax, fiber, drank a whole bottle of prune juice and had an enema. even with all that i barely went. my stomach pain is so disabling. i wish it would stop. it hurts so bad. please get back to me. thanks

For me it depends on the problem. If I am having problems with C it like a too full about to pop pressure kind of pain. With a side of sharp stabbing where it feels like my guts are trying to split open. With D I go anywhere from the mild discomfort of little tiny baby spasms that go away when I rub my tummy in the right direction to burning, stabbing, oh my lord I'm going to die type pain. It some days it the fire of burning lava, other days it's a weird burning like holding a too cold ice cube. I have so many different types of pain with this that I can't say that I really get one kind of pain or another.

As to the alien thing, I see it as I have a colony of gremlins living in my guts and they like to hold ball room dance lessons while wearing golf shoes. Some days they wear the extra pointy kind.
