Im really hoping someone here has some ideas as to what could possibly going on. In about the second week in February I had some abdoming pain one day. I thought it could be indigestion but when it did not go away and has been a constant problem every day since (abount 4 months now.

I have seen my primary doctor numerous times and am on my second gastroenterologist. I have had blood work done, an unltrasound, a CT scan, and an ediscopy and all came up with nothing. I have tried proton pump inhibitors/antacids, a million different diets and nothing seems to help.

My symptoms are extreme gas and abdominal discomfort/slight pain/pressure almost all day every day. You can actually hear my stomact gurgling very loudly all the time. At this point it is driving me absolutely crazy. I never want to leave my house because I feel terrible all day every day.

Im really hoping someone here can at least give me some ideas as to what this could possibly be because I have spent hours searching online over these last few months and I have run out of ideas. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Usually the Docs label such a problem to be IBS. You should at least be happy that no problem was indicated in all your tests. Try some gas relieving tablets herbal or other one. I am sure your situation would become better. Taking more fibre may also help. Although there is no definite medication for IBS still Docs do prescribe

    You may have IBS.  If all tests come back clear, IBS is the diagnosis.  See your doctor again and ask about IBS.  Don't google your symptoms because it can cause health anxiety. The best place to get firm answers is your doctor's surgery.

    Could it still be IBS even though im not having any bowel issues? And could i really be fine one day then have pain the next that will not go away just like that? Also I have tried the gas tablets and fiber supplements already with no change.

      If you have IBS, you will have bowel habit change.  However, in some cases, the changes can be so subtle that you don't notice them.  With IBS, you can be fine one day but in pain the next. My pain used to change in type and intensity throughout the day, every day.   Perhaps ask your doctor for an anti spasmodic.

    THATS WHATS HAPPENING TO ME!!! It's a feeling of mainly discomfort/full , that circulates 24/7, and wen I have to go for a bowel movement, starts to flare up.

    There's not as much pain anymore, as the constipation is mostly gone, but that full ache will lead to a stitch pain and then eventually a few seconds of bloating... then goes back to usual NON STOP ROUTINE OF DISCOMFORT

    It's ridiculous and non stop sad sorry idk what it may be, ibs, as it is what I basically have

    But I it's really annoying, and yes a lot of gas.
