keep getting cramps in my stomach.

Posted , 2 users are following.

the doc says i have IBS (know this isnt the IBS group,but it's a cramp at worst) i dont think i have ibs to be honest.

sometimes i get a pins and needle pain going from my lower abdomen and cramping which leaves me leaning /doubled over  with so much pain. ive never had it before, and also pains in my belly button.

    Ypu did not supply enough information for anyone to really help you.  You didnt list a med. history,. drugs you were give nto rry, tests you have had. etc. No one can tell you what you have from so little information. However I can make some guesses but you will need to be examined and tested.  Since yo uare female---I strngly suggest you be checked for ovarian cancer, cysyts-tumors. You can also have an umbilical HERNIA ..if youe belly button turns blue--you can die--you would need emergency surgery--I strongly suggest you examine it (wuthout touching it) and make sure it is not protruding outward (an emergency) or turning blue (a surgical emergency).  You need to be examined by a general surgeon and a gynocologist.  Yo ucant solve this issuer at home or with pills....I also can not say the cramping is not from a woman issue (menstruall cramps) or from actual IBS...there is a drug which works well for IBS cramps--HYOSCAMINE 0.125mg ..ask for a pescription. It is ONLY for IBS cramps--a specific medication. If it does no good..I doubt you have IBS. Good luck.

    Did you read my post? A blood tests will not determine if you have a hernia, a tumor, an absess or other issue in abdomen or ovaries. You can have all the negative blood tests..that wont state whether or not you have a serious issue requiring surgery.  Again-see a GI or general surgeon and gynecologist.

I told you to see a GI doctor and or general surgeon and a gynecologist twice. You then said "why dp I need blood tests". SI didnt state anywhere for yo ut oget more blood tests. I am sorr I will nto comment further to you. You do not see mto understand what I type. Bye.
