For the past year and some change I have had this left sided gurgling/flutter/vibration..It started out as a dull stitch and when I pushed in I couldn't pinpoint the spot..its one inch below belly button two inches to the left and It feels like a weird sensation. On top of that the anxiety hits overload and I start freaking out. My bowel movements... I honestly am not sure because of my slight laxative addiction. (I know sooo sooo bad) but if I stop the laxatives I get so constipated that the left side becomes even more painful. Its worse on an empty stomach and I feel some relief after I eat. I do not have any blood in my bowels..Can u have UC without bloody stools? Is this just IBS? I always think the worst and have seen 2 doctors and have scheduled numerous colonoscopy but end up skipping out. someone anyone please help me. currently prilosec and zantac help but not completely.

The only way to accurately diagnose either UC or Crohn's is with a colonoscopy and biopsies. It's possible to have UC without blood, it's also possible for either Crohn's or IBS to cause pain and constipation. It would be irresponsible for us to guess what is wrong with you. You really do need to see a doctor and follow through with the scope. Is it the procedure you're afraid of or the diagnosis?

Thank u for responding so soon!. I know this sounds depressing...my only sibling passed (my bro) 2 years ago, my mom has horrible health prob with her back. and people around me keep dying left and right. I had a baddd reaction to cipro around the same time this abdominal pain started..my doctor wouldnt believe it was tha cipro that caused crazy long list of reactions.. and I am absolutely scared. I know I sound so immature (even after reading it I feel like a lil kid for saying that) but overtime I believe I have developed a phobia. sad im soo sorry for rambling.

Thank u bbc..that one sentence made me feel better. I dont want to worry my mama and daddy because of the hardship they have been through...I tend to overthink things which doesnt help any situation...but these left sided flutters are scaring me. I used to have a stomach of steel and never had any stomach issue until now. This getting older thing super sucks.

I tend to do the same thing. =) i thought i was the only one...just keep living day by day. You'll be better if you don't worry but i know when people tell me not to worry i tend to worry more. And getting older dosen't mean life sucks it just means you need to change with the age.

Yes. smurf   Cut down on stress and you'll cut down most of your symptoms. (I could be wrong though for other people it might be different)
