I've had IBS for many years. Recently, I developed a pain in my lower left side. It comes and goes, but stays around most of the time. . . I also have a fairly constant pain in my left upper quadrant, around where the colon turns to go downward.
Do any of you find that you have fairly consistent places that you have the same pain all the time?
Kathy whenever diarrhea hits me, the cramping pain is always on my lower left side. I also have the almost constant pain in my upper left quad and you're right that is just where the transverse colon turns to the decending colon. I just had a colonoscopy and results showed NO abnormalities. So the gastros keep telling me it's "only" IBS grrrrr.
