Ok so just looking for a bit of advice really.
I haven't actually been diagnosed with IBS as of yet, I've been having pains in my lower back and sides (that actually felt like pain in my ovaries) for the past year, I have been to the doctors numerous times with the problems I've been having, I've also been feeling very tired and I suffer with headaches on a regular basis too.
The doctors eventually referred me to the hospital, they thought it was gynae related, I recently had an op to see if I had endimitriosis or any large cysts on my ovaries, I had neither. The surgeon saw me and just said everything was fine but my bowels looked full and a bit red and swollen and to see my doctor , however I'm too embarrassed to go to the docs seems silly I know!
I've never really thought of IBS as a problem as I have always related it with having a really upset tummy, but I'm the opposite
I tend not to go to the loo for like two weeks then I end up taking laxatives and that just sends my tummy crazy I also hardly ever pass wind
The pains I'm having in my lower back and sides are driving me bonkers, it also really hurts to have intercourse
I know i should go to the docs, I'm just scared and embarrassed, so thought I would just seek a bit of friendly advice on the net before I go.
Thanks for reading
