Hi there I wonder if anyone can help me with this.
I have been experiencing IBS like symptoms (mainly lower abdominal pain and gas with a two week period of constipation and diahorea)
I have just been for a sigmoidoscope (sorry that's probably not how you spell it) and that was clear so they reckon I have IBS.
I woke up at 5pm this morning with really bad lower abdominal pain, and feeling dizzy and sick, after about half an hour the pain susided d a little and I went back to bed. I now have pain in the same area though not as severe. The pain was very severe and I considered calling the doctor out. I have not gone to work today, fearful that it could return in the same way. - could this be IBS or is it likely to be somehing else - I need to get checked out.
I am waiting for a laparoscope to check out my reproductive organs as I have very painful periods. This pain was not disimilar however I am in the middle of my cycle.
It would be helpful to know if IBS can cause this type of pain, I am also slightly concerned that the sigmoidoscope may have caused an infection or something. It was approximately 11 days ago. Would really appreciate anyones comments
