Hi there. I am hoping for some reassurance/ advice on my problems. I have been suffering from 'IBS' symptoms for over 20 years. I have had upper endoscopies and colonoscopies which revealed nothing more than some polyps in my large intestine. However, I have occasionally suffered from painful 'attacks' in my right side, just below my ribcage, which have increased in frequency. I have nausea after eating (i just ate a low fat yoghurt for lunch and feel really sick). I had an attack about 2 weeks ago and was actually sick after eaing some fried food. I had bad pain in my right side which I couldn't seem to lessen. It got better after a couple of days. I am regularly very itchy and most of the time I have tenderness just below my ribcage. I have lost nearly a stone in weight over the last month, but only these last few days gone 'low/no fat'. I get very painful 'spiky feeling' bloating and diarrhoea 5+ times a day when it's bad. What I pass is often pale with undigested food and never looks 'normal'. I am tired all the time as well.
I saw my GP last week and asked if my gallbladder could be checked and am being referred for an ultrasound scan.
Am I over-reacting? Could it be something else?
