Hi all I need some help. My husband's doctor diagnosed him with IBS and I just don't buy it. Tell me does this sound like IBS to you?
He has a near constant pain on his left side below his ribs. Sometimes when it's at its worst it radiates into his back. It is often worst when he first wakes up in the morning and eating usually makes to feel better. He describes the feeling sometime as being similar to feeling exremely hungry or like knots in his stomach (like being anxious) even when there is nothing anxious on his mind. It is worse when he is tired or stressed but can be sitting down having a a great relaxing time thinking of nothing to do with this pain and it starts up. Ultrasounds were clear. He's had endoscopy, colonsocopy, MRI and bloods were all good. He does have diahreoah often. There Is no difference with foods that we can find. We are desperate and grasping at straws so any ideas are very welcome. Also he has been off work for 10 weeks because of this because his job is strssful and it is not better. Thanks everyone.
