Basically I don't know where to start but here goes, I was a alcoholic from age 22 to age 27, I have been clean for over 3 years, I thought my life can only go up now, I've been having series abdominal pain for the last 2 years on and off but now it's everyday, it seems after I've opened my bowels the pain starts and it's really irritating as it wrecks my day and makes me really depressed and I do seem to take it out on people close to me but all I keep saying is I'd love you to feel this for 1 minute so you understand what it's like, I have gallstones and still an enlarged spleen which I'm dealing with also so I'm confused as to weather the gp is just saying it's ibs or its another underlying problem, the last 6 months I've had 2 really bad attacks of pain one which resulted in hospital as I couldn't bare, like stomach cramp which the longest episode has lasted nearly 3 hours to go, undescribable pain... Anyway I would like to know if any one suffers in this way or has had similar symptoms and if there's anything you have tried that relieves this, I'm on buscapan and lanzoprazole medication but does nothing, gp requested urgent ultrasound scan which I go for on Thursday this week and give me codeine but make me ill for the meantime. Basically I'm only 30 with a 9 year old son and 7 week old daughter and need to get this sorted as I'm frightened of getting really really depressed if you know what I mean. Thank-you for reading.
