I am 18 years old and have had ibs for many years but officially got diagnosed about two years ago. I have suffered with stomach cramps, nausea and frequently needing the toilet. Recently it has made me quite depressed. I am scared to go out and will only go out when I have to. I struggle to get to work sometimes and its ruining my life. I went to the doctors the other day to ask for more tests as I have only had a blood test to diagnose ibs and I also want to see a speacialist. when I went to the doctors he wanted to feel my stomach and as he pressed anywhere on my stomach it was hurting in betweem my chest so much that I gasped in pain. After that I was in a lot of pain , burping and hiccuping frequently. I drunk a milkshake and felt really sick but luckily managed to keep it down . After that I havent felt sick much more but I have noticed that I have been a lot more bloated than usual , I look heavily pregnant and it is so uncomfortable! Im not sure if this is due to my ibs or something different? The doctor sent me off for a blood test and said my stomach is tender. Sorry that its so long but I really want to know, it really gets me down! Thanks in advance x
