Hi, I've had IBS for about 10 years (Alternating between diarrhea and constipation). It has gotten a lot worse over the past year and a couple days ago, I developed this horrible stabbing pain that kept coming on every 5-10 minutes, lasting about 5-10 seconds each time. When I push on my stomach to try to figure out where the pain is coming from, it hurts the most right below my belly button. However, I am feeling the pain in the center of my stomach, above my belly button as well. So I feel like it is radiating to different parts of my stomach. It hurts even more when I stand and even walk, like a heavy feeling that I can feel with each step I take. I have been having diarrhea with this pain, and I can't seem to eat anything without having to run to the bathroom. However, when I push to go to the bathroom, I feel pain in my lower abdomen. Has anyone ever experienced this before or have any idea what it could be? I will say it started the first day of my period and has been going on for 3 days now, without any relief. So I'm worried it might be endometriosis? This has never happened before during any of my other periods, so this is new. I'm not even sure if it is related. I have been trying to do a lot of research on the topic. Any help would be appreciated, PLEASE!!
