Intense pain left side of abdomen

Posted , 3 users are following.

I’ve been taking Lansoprazole 30mg for a few years now and was diagnosed with IBS about 7 months ago, we also have a family history of it. Since then I’ve had to take Buscopan on and off, but this past week I’ve felt very nauseous and have had really bad pains on the left side of my bowel starting from the top of my stomach under rib bone and going right down, sometimes to my groin. It’s a stabbing pain and then a burning. Could this be IBS? I thought it may be because I’ve been drinking more fizzy drinks than usual and gin and tonics (haven’t for the past couple of days since the pain got really bad). Please help!
