Guys I wanna know whether IBS can cause these symptoms

Appetite loss from 6 months and intermittently abdominal pain under left or sometimes right rib. After a Blood test, Liver profile, Endoscopy, Thyroid Profile, Blood Sugar, Lipids went fine my gastrophysician prescribed pantoprazole for 1 month and then to have Ultrasound. So my issues are not resolved fully but due to Coronavirus outbreak here( India) i am not able to go for ultrasound. But reading some of the past answers about IBS i want to ask you guys can IBS cause appetite loss as well because the sporadically occuring pain i know is kinda IBS symptom.

      there are different catagories of IBS , it can be acute or chronic, it can be light pain or severe pain that almost kills (needs medical help immediately). some hormones also trigger IBS, which means that all the month you may have no pain, but when it's time to release certain hormones, they provoke IBS. in women, it's usually estrogen and progesterone which trigger IBS and they feel severe pain and they have to go to medical emergency. this usually happens 1 week before or 1 week after the periods.

    Hello ...usually IBS is either abdominal pain with either constipation or diarrhea. If you dont have either of those then I wouldn't think its IBS. Maybe it could be a food that's not agreeing with you?
