That's wonderful to hear Hopeful! I often wonder how many IBS (and other people who suffer from digestive disorders) also develop PFD and haven't a clue. I am thankful I had a progressive doc who keyed on the connection between my pain, stress and stool patterns. I, like you, am still on a combo of anti-anxiety meds and counseling to deal with my residuary IBS anxiety and other sources of stress.

Hope you continue to see improvement and feel better :)

if you are haveing pains in your groin it could be a hernia my mate was diagnosed with ibs but after an ultra sound they discovered he had a hernia that was pusing agains his gut and groin. After he got it taken out he hasent had any pain or problems

skull  Hello out there, I blundered into this stuff searching for answers to some of my problems.  I feel the same way sometimes and have the means to do what one person suggested but as a fairly good golfer and have already had two holes in one still struggling to shoot my age at 80 so far.  Stated many years ago with dizzy spells just shook it off with a laugh.  As it worstened seeked help from an ear doc who shook me around and anounced it was in my head and not vertigo I should see a neurologist.  After many trys finally got an appointment and after some xrays of my head he anounced the white spots in the brain were "mini strokes"  Well heck no what?  He put me on Plavix and Arecept, thats all.  Well the Aricept gave me night mares which I finally overcome but followed up a few month later passed out one night and smacked my head, wife happened to hear and I woke up her swabbing my head and waiting for the ambulance.  Took me to a local hospital who had no idea and said diverticularitis infection sent me home.  Few days later swooned again back to the hp where my heart rate was our of whack and sent me on to a bigger hp who found a blocked artery and put a stint in.  Well ok so far but the dizzy spell continued and blockage in my spine kept me wobbling like a duck.  The neurogist put a series of shots in there absolutely no help. I'm trying to stay away from milk prducts and feel halfway human when I do have a good bowel movement but the dizzyness presists.  Any suggestions appreciated.  risping

hi all,  i feel ur pain ,, i got same thing for 18 months now ,  right test pain, groin, back pain,loose number twos . all on right side , worse when after ive eaten,  had all scan tests,  all clear,  seen all docs   no help at all ,,i wanted the right testical off  but they would not do it , i keep going docs ever 2 weeks till they sort me out , ????  but now i got to see a new doc at my doctors , and he seems to think he knows wat it is ,
he is sending me for a blood test for celiac disease , as he thinks its gluten related ,  well im waiting for to go for my blood test soon ,  but in the meen time ive changed my diet and gone gluten free, 2 days now  still little pain but i think its getting better ,  but its hard to cut out all the food i like,   but if it stops the pain im in,  ill do anything,
gluten damages small intestiens  and can cause all kinds of pains  and things,   so  hopfully it will work ,  ill let u now in a week or so how its going  
 thanks all mark
you do a search on youtube for gluten free  and u see how many peps had similar pains  and it was sorted by going gluten free  ? ?

This sounds like what I have which took awhile to diagnose and you should definitly see an MD to rule out things like hernias, kidney stones and celiac disease.
It turned out that I have IBS of the constipation type.  As someone else mentioned straining led to pelvic floor disorder which presented as chronic prostatis (no infection so antibiotics dont help).  The IBS led to pain in the scrotum while the prostatis resulted in pain at the tip of the penis.
 
After seeing an MD and ruling out more serious stuff you want to rule out triggers for the IBS through an elimination diet.  I discovered that gluten which had never been a problem now was.  NSAIDs are problem for me too so no aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen. (tylenol/acetaminophen is ok but never take more than indicated on the bottle)  Also consume lots of fiber and liquid.
This treats the IBS and prevents the prostatis from getting worse.
 
The thing that has helped make the prostatis better is physical therapy.  There are clinics that provide this for women and it includes external and internal trigger point myofascial work combined with biofeedback training so you stop tensing your pelvic floor muscles.  Some clinics provide this for men. The internal work sounds intimidating guys but if the pain has gotten to the point where you are checking this board its worth it.  YOU CANNOT DO THIS ON YOUR OWN.  Most general practitioners are unaware of this but urologists are generally aware of clinics that can do this. 
 
It will take some time but this can all get better.
I wish you all the best of luck.

I have experienced the majority of the symptoms that are mentioned in this thread. It's enough to drive you crazy and make you miserable. I have tried most of the prescription meds for ibs and none ever fully relieves the problems. I found a non presciption medication that is amazing, only two days after starting it, I feel normal for the first time in forever! It's called Digestive Advantage IBS. It may not work as well for everyone else but it has done wonders for me. I know this sounds like a commercial but it's not at all, this stuff does what nothing else has been able to do for me!

oh god I could cry, just knowing that others suffer from pain in the genitals as a result of IBS. , Bloated at moments and on palpating stomach very tender, but have this odd discomfort at the tip of my penis....not there all the time but just uncomfortable when it is, behind head, also on foreskin. Does my head in, and gets me quite low. Appears thrush like when looking at it.... and I know there is a close link between the both. Seems daft but just so relieved i'm not on my own, also pressure going into my back....its a horrendous ailment had it for years . Any tips out there ??? take hot water, buscopan, watch diet, any other ideas.. to help wit this issues guys??

Hi,
I stumbled upon this thread while searching the internet to see if anyone has the same issues as me and it looks like I'm not alone. I've been to 2 doctors already and have been diagnosed as having helicobacter pylori by each doctor and had treatment with antibiotics and following that the doctor advised that the bacterial infection had cleared and further diagnosed me as having IBS and prescribed laxatives that do not help at all. It's the bloating, constipation and effect it has on my groin and testicles that worries me the most as it's having a big impact on my life. Has this thread continued on another page and if so has anyone found a solution to this constant horrible feeling.
Any help at all would be appreciated.

hi, this forum makes me feel so much better!!
had aching left testicle last July for months!! had 2 full blood tests, urine tests, pain then was both testicles almost felt like they was being crushed... then had lower abdominal aching which I still have... some days it goes and think I'm fine then it comes back!!! seen a urologist in December and he examined me and checked blood and all fine!!! felt like I was going crazy but this forum confirms I'm not alone... I'm 14stone 5 and feel great other than abdominal aching and testicles aching.. I don't drink or smoke and go to gym 5 days a week but this has knocked me psychologically and I've been worried I'm dying of something. thanks guys
