Hi everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with IBS ,but I feel like the doctor is just diagnosing me with something so Ill leave her alone. I have upper right and left quadrant pain (feels like tender ab muscles). I go back and fourth between diarrhea and constipation. When I do have diarrhea it floats or looks greasy as if I am having malabsorption issues. I am more convinced I have pancreatitis ,but within the past year i have had multiple sonograms (most recent being a few weeks ago), and one CT which showed that everything looked normal. I also have blood in my stool from time to time (I have had a colonoscopy which also showed everything looked normal). All my blood work which looks at pancreatic and liver enzymes are all clean as well. From my understanding IBS pain is more in the lower quadrant correct? Does IBS also cause malabsorption issues? Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? Im driving myself and my family crazy because ive been battling these issues for so long and am not satisfied with this diagnosis. I feel that I may need a second opinion.
