IBS or not

Posted , 4 users are following.

Ok since November I have been having stomach pains like a dull period pain that doesn't go away my bowel movements are never the same I could have "normal" then constipated then lose stools. Recently these have changed to pain just at the top of my pelvic bone and my right hip sometimes the pain in my pelvic area is pressure like I want to give birth I've heard of IBS, there is a fam history of it. I know people that also have Coeliac disease UC and Crohn's

    You need to see your doctors and soon, any bowel changes should be reported and yours on the right could be ibs could be something worse, I'm no expert!

    Could be IBS if you have a family history of it; but see your doctor first.

    Snap. I'm having the same kinda thing. I was diagnosed after having tests at hospital with ibs over 20 years ago. But I seem to be suffeting more over last year. I'm on colpermin and buscapan daily. Also pain killers. Totally fed up. I feel your pain.

      Hi Lisa. I think you have IBS mixed with constipation mostly but the runs sort of well mostly mucus. Have you tried fybogel to keep your bowel regular. That's what was I recommended for diverticulosis flare ups, which works. Try it, it may well work.
