Irritable bowl or not

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been diagnosed by gp as having ibs but not a lot was done to get to  get to this diagnosis, can I please get some advice . I get bloating and wind and keep getting pains in both sides of lower stomach, also through out the day I have waves of nausea come over me and sometimes my stomach feels really empty and hungry like feeling. My stomach feels constantly bloated and the pains can also be quiet sharp.

    Sounds like IBS.  Your doctor may feel confident in his diagnosis to have decided on IBS with only a few tests.  What tests did you have?  I had a urine test, celiac test, ultrasound, fecal calprotectin and h pylori stool test.  All were negative.  I have had sharp pains with my IBS along with dull, deep grinding and sore to touch pain.  I havw also had waves of nausea and back pain.   My pain moves about.

    What did your GP recommend ?

    Have you been told to change your diet ? Has your GP recommended any medications ?

      Hello Michelle

      Your GP is progressing down a well trod pathway and this walkway is a good way to help you control your problems. It will take time, and to be honest I suffer IBS if stressed sometimes.

      Follow your GP advice Buscopan is a good medication that can help, if I remember well this medicine can be purchased without script

      Good Luck

    Hi Michelle, ask to see someone else, since when was your doctor a dietitian? Cutting all fibre out could damage your bowel. Insist you see a dietitian just to get some information for yourself, they may put you on an elimination diet. You could ask you chemist for medication to slow your bowel down, try speaking to the experts on here they will help you. Good luck. Your doctor sounds as much use as a chocolate teapot!!!!

    You can get COLPERMIN on prescription and also BUSCOPAN

    Your doctor should have told you this and prescribed them for you.

    Hope they help you.
