Does anyone else experience bad ibs pain and gas on left upper abdoman, side and back the day after alcohol? I'm currently waiting to see gastro specialist next month as suffered with upper left pain for 5 years, had all texts ct, ultrasound, bloods, stool, camera down throat at the start but everything was clear. Pain went away for about a year when I left a stressful relationship but has been back since I had my daughter almost 2 years ago. Had additional ultra sound a year ago nothing showed up and loads of blood tests all clear.
I do have the pain anyway but it's much worse after even a small amount of alcohol. I have cut it out completely but had 3 drinks at a wedding last night and pain is bad today plus up in night with upset stomach and anxiety shakes.
It's all really getting me down and if it wasn't for my children sometimes I feel like ending it! Just want to know what's wrong!
I'm paranoid it's my pancreas but at least 10 different docs say they think it's bowel! I don't have pale stools ever and never vomit.
I also get sharp pains under left breast. All these pains and spasms only last a few seconds but can come quite frequently. Even a&e said they didn't think it was pancreas! Could this really just be ibs?
I know I need to stop drinking if it causes pain and some of you will just tell me never to drink again and I'm not going to cos it's not worth it! Just want to know if anyone else has this?! Feel like something constantly under left rib that rumbles when I push it!
Feel like I'm going crazy!
