left back side abdominal pain

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hey everyone first post on here so pardon me if I've fluffed this up.

About a month or 2 ago I went to nth doctor with stomach pains that lasted weeks I was told by my doctor I probably had IBS as he couldn't find any other issues (he didn't do any test par bloods) that pain eventually went away. Now ive got this really bad pain in my left abdomen round the back I've had it for 3 weeks now normal painkiller aren't working to take the pain away I've tried IBS meds just in case to no avail and it gets worse when I'm walking or laying down so I've had very little sleep.

I went back to the doctor and he said there was no sign of anything very bad no bleeding no vomiting no trouble with the toilet so sent away for an ultrasound and then sent me on my way. The pain is bad enough it spread a few days back to my whole stomach and I ended up going to A&E they have me gas and air some pain killer and sent me on my way once again. Any ideas? sad

    take a good look at what you are eating and drinking, you could have an allergy to something in your diet, processed foods, milk, sugar, flouride and alcohol are some of the worst offenders
