I'm sorry you're not feeling well, I can all too well relate. Let me first tell you not to settle for an ibs diagnosis PLEASE! Doctors tell any and all patients that they have ibs whenever they don't know what's wrong wiith them. If you are experiencing pain on your right side along with nauseousness you may very well have a disfunctional gallbladder. Do you have any diarrhea??? If so, please look up HABBA SNYDROME....IT VERY WELL MIGHT GIVE YOU YOUR LIFE BACK (believe me, I too as diagnosed with IBS but turned out I had habba snydrom.)
Have you had any tests done prior to your IBS diagnosis? You should demand an endoscopy, ultrasound for gallbladder at the minnimum. If you're experiencing diarrhea and/or constipation a colonoscopy should be done as well. FYI, if its your gallbladder an ultrasound often will not show anything wrong. You would need an ultrasound with Hidascan and cck injection....most doctors will reuse to perform this test due to its expensive cost. In my case I had to fly out to new jersey and pay out of my pocket to see dr habba himself. Dr habba discovered that many ibs patients were having exact same symtpoms as people with no or. Dysfunctioning gallblader. Google HABBA SNYDROME and see if you fit the description. The great news is there's medication to treat it and within days you will have your life back! I suffered needlessly for a year and a half to and am now happpy to have my life back thanks to Dr Habba!
Sorry for the long post but I really want to get the word out there to other sufferers who were like me. Feel free to contact me with ANY questions, I'm happy to help:) hang in there!
