I never thought I'd be writing on a website for help but I have no idea what else to do. For the past year I have been going to the Doctors because of the pains I've been having in my stomach that I once thought were only there after eating, now I have a dull ache all the time. I have been told over and over again it's nothing more than IBS.
I completely understand that people with IBS are in a lot of pain but I don't feel like this is normal, the past 2 nights I have woken up at 2am with excruciating pain and then I pass out. I feel ill all the time and honestly, I feel like I'm dying.
I have tried different medications, herbal remedies, changing my diet, meditation, the lot. I should probably also mention I have PKD.
I really don't want to live like this anymore I just can't cope with the pain. Any help at all would be appreciated.

Sorry, I was in agony last night wasn't thinking straight but I will update my answer to answer all of this. Thank you.
I was in agony last night so I did forget to include some important details.
I have a general pain all over my 'tummy' area but the excruciating pain I was talking about always occurs in the lower left corner of my abdomen.
My diet is pretty varied. I have tried many diets that are supposed to help with IBS and stomach pain. Nothing works because no specific foods set my 'IBS' off anyway. It seems to be when I eat anything I get a sore stomach.
You should keep a food diary so you can be specific about what foods may be causing the pain.....see if a pattern emerges.....also ask your doc to refer you for an ultrasound and MRI scan to investigate your lower abdomen.....best wishes...
Same! Literally every time I go to the GI he says it's just IBS or anxiety.
Do you have change of bowel habit? Perhaps try a food diary to pinpoint any food problems. What is PKD?
Hi mommy, I can tell you that i went through the same thing for a few weeks. O wasn't feeling quite right
I had pains in mid stomach area, taking probiotics. Thought it was an ulcer. But then it just went away. I was told it was a stretch of gastritis and it can take up to 6 weeks. Hope this helps and good luck.
