Hello all this is my first post so sorry if I ramble... I am 41 years old and for the past week or so I have had a constant stomach ache and I mean constant I ha ea hot water bottle strapped to me and taken buscopan neither are working, I was diagnosed with IBS over 20 years ago and on and off have taken Colorado, peppermint oil, buscopan etc, I have been under an awful lot of stress lately so wondering if this has caused a flare up I look 6 months pregnant easily and constantly burping and blowing off! I have loose stools that are mucussy sometimes but not watery diarrhoea, I was diagnosed when I was 19/20 and I think it was based purely on my age the symptoms feel the same but I've had no tests as such to confirm? The thought of a colonoscopy terrifies me so much are u knocked out to have it done becuase I would need to be!! What tests has everyone had or have some of you like me been diagnosed with IBS with no tests? Also any tips on how to get rid of this cramping it's a dull ache and driving me insane I have a docs appt on 12th December not sure what to say really thanks for reading x
