Can IBS cause pain to the touch?

Posted , 7 users are following.

my doctor has told me for a while now that he suspects that i have IBS, as i have constant alternating diarrhea/consitpation and stomach cramping etc. tonight im experiencing something different and im not sure of this is IBS related or if i shoukd be more concerned. its worth mentioning that i have panic disorder and get scared thinking i might need to go to the hospital often. anyways, tonight i developed a pain in my lower left abdomen (almost at the side of my body across from belly button area) it started about an hour after eating. i can feel it more when i breathe deep and when i stand up and press on my belly, the area is tender ans sensitive to the touch. its not an excruciating pain by any means, just enough to be annoying and uncomfortable. has anyone experienced this with IBS or do we think it could be something else ?
