I have recently been diagnosed with ibs by my doctor.
Sometimes the pain gets so bad, I find it hard to believe that it is just ibs that I'm suffering with or if it's something more serious!
I have a really bloated tummy - looks like I'm about 6 months pregnant some days (which is really embarrassing!), I also get this really bad pain between my rib cage that sometimes radiates to my chest (which makes me worry about my heart), I get pain under my ribs too, especially the left side, find it really uncomfortable to eat and feel full really easily.
Are these all really symptoms of ibs? Like I say, I am worried about my heart (doctors say my heart is nothing to worry about as I am only 23 so they won't do any tests on me). I sometimes find it hard to breath as the fullness makes it painful.
If this is just ibs, can any sufferers recommend any medication that can help with this?
I also suffer from anxiety (or so the doctor says!) so obviously this is going to make it worse?
Thank you, Charlotte x
