hi, im a 25 year old male in good health. so for the past 14 weeks or so, ive been suffering with some very odd stomach complaints. completely new to me i must add. it all started with me having what i think was food poisoning. i had the shivers, diarrhea and i was sick a few times. after a day resting i went back to normal and felt fine. 2 weeks later i had painful trapped gas for the first time in my life. after this my lower stomach spasm'd for 2 days straight, this was painless may i add. so after the spasming subsided, i had virtually no symptoms other than a subtle ache where my lower abdomen had been spasming. then out of the blue 3 weeks later i had the trapped wind feeling again followed by VERY PAINFUL lower stomach cramps, almost like a pulling that took my breath away. again, it subsided and started again a week later. since this episode, i have been continuously getting sharp pains under my ribs both left and right and also in my lower abdomen, both left and right sided. the painful cramps have now returned after 9 weeks without them. my doc has diagnosed me with post infectious IBS after a visit and some blood tests. my bowel movement are relatively normal, probably a little looser than normal, i also have an acidic taste in mt mouth when my symptoms are at their worst. doctor said theyre all connected. anybody else on here suffer wit P-I IBS? doc said it will probably eventually subside but it could take months/years. the pain is very difficult to deal with on day to day basis. any guidance would be much appreciated.
