Sorry but getting a little paranoid here and was wondering if you good folks with experience of IBS could see if I'm likely to have IBS or something else. I'm 31 and I've had issues with my digestive system for a while now (6 months minimum) but the symptoms seem to be getting worse and the last week has been horrible.
I have a sharp pain just below my ribs on the left hand side, I feel bloated, my lower back is sore. In the last week I have completely lost my appetite which is unusual for me, I don't get mildly hungry until after lunch. All that points to IBS but my main issue is blood on my stools, it does not seem to be much, it's light and on the outside. My stools are pale and food not completely broken down. I'm not sure if it is connected but in the last 2 months my skin has become really dry.
My symptoms usually improve with a Rennie.
I went to the doctor and had blood and stool tests last week but I'm getting worried now.
If anyone has something similar it would be good to hear.
