My son was diagnosed with IBS in September. He has now had an ultra sound scan, MAG 3 scan and Meckels scan with nothing found. So IBS is the diagnosis. When I read other people's symptoms my son doesn't seem to fit with these. He has not been constipated or had diarrheoa or bloated tummy. He just has terrible tummy pain. It comes for a few days/a week at a time and then can disappear for weeks. I have kept a food diary but there seems to be no pattern. He says it is cramp like pain but isn't terribly good at describing the pain. He rolls about in pain when he is at his worse. He has now missed school a few days which we have managed to avoid up until now. He had blood in his poo a month ago and was kept in hospital overnight and a scope was put in to look for an ulcer. I am feeling pretty helpless and although the Doctors have been great I am wondering if anyone else may have any advice. He has buscopan which helps little. He has been given an antacid which has mixed results but they are wondering if he is sensitive to acid. He is a pretty anxious boy but he appears to get sore sometimes even when he doesn't have anything to be stressed about. Any help/advice would be gratefully received.
