If you haven't had a scan in that area, I would think that would be the next step if this continues.
Lots of good advice/info here - Good Luck!
If it's top left that's where your stomach is also large colon .
I would see your doctor to get it checked out I have severe liwer gastric pain and the top left if my colon makes a gurgling noise at the sane time I have had a few endoscopes and its only Hutus hernia and sever acid inside if you have reflux it burning it's your stomach if not its your colon no harm in getting it checked hope your feeling better soon
I think you should seek another opinion from a different doc at your surgery and tell them you understand you have been told it's IBS but these pains seem to be coming from the stomach itself.

I went 40 yrs being misdiagnosed with many ailments that were actually symptoms of Coeliac Disease. It is an autoimmune disorder that is triggered when a person eats gluten which is found in many processed foods, lipsticks, lip balms, toothpastes & medicine.
You describe my pains but I suffered also with IBS, joint pain, body aches, fatigue, depression, low iron, lactose intolerance, sinus infections (I had at least 2 a yr), early menopause, infertility, nose bleeds, muscle cramps, heart palpitations, chronic hives, balance issues... I exp. over 50 symptoms in the many years I suffered. CD has a very long list of symptoms... Over 300 symptoms bc it affects the duodenum which is a part of the small intestine. I was also falsely diagnosed with an ulcer bc the symptoms mimicked one.
It's very hard for Drs to connect the dots... It can lie dormant in the body& you think you're alright, then BAM you are miserable again ... Many have it but don't know it.
If left undiagnosed, it can bring on many more serious diseases.
There is a blood test the. Dr can order but you have to load up on gluten for several days before taking. Be pro active bc the medical community is not. The cure is a diet change & they receive no incentive where a medicine isn't prescribed.
Mine was actually diagnosed with a endoscopy that took biopsies of the duodenum.. I had become so sick after suffering with a stomach virus that seemingly would not go away. It hurt to eat almost everything. Gurglings, gas pains that shot up into my left shoulder & mimicked a heart attack, inflammation, GERD, diahreah/constipation, low energy, I mean the kind where it seemed a major thing to place one foot in front of the other. The biggest thing was though... A gnawing pain under my left bottom rib, sometimes mid-section. Hunger pains hurt ...probably bc the stomach acid was aggravating the damaged inner lining of my sm intestine.
Live long & prosper.
