I'm a newcomer so i hope i have done this right!.
I have had IBS for years and Nothing i have tried has worked so i have learnt to live with it!
All the Hospital tests i have had are normal although that was 10 years ago, but recently i have started to get a nagging dull ache under my right rib!.
I believe in reflexology which i have been having and she says all she seems to constantly pick up is a stomach problem.
I have had a liver function test, pancreas and full blood count, all clear, so my doc sent me for a scan on my gallbladder, which has a pylop in but the doctor didn't think it could cause this sort of pain as pylops don't give off symptoms.
So yet again fobbed off with more tablets and the pain has slowly got worse. The tablets are to rule out an ulser and they have made no difference, so now i'm getting scared.
The pain is continual from the minute i wake up, if i eat it dulls down a bit but never goes, last night it was bad, today its more mild but constant.
I feel totally bloated and the pain goes round my back, makes me feel like i have bruised ribs.
This doesn't feel like IBS, this is different but i'm also on movocol to see if i have a blockage of some sort.
It's getting me down now and i feel like i'm out of ideas.
Has anyone out there had similar symptoms and got any ideas? Please
