I have had a mild form of IBS for many years, linked with stress. Over the last year or so, I have also occasionally had an extremely sharp stabbing pain in the right side of my lower abdomen. When this occurs, I have to crawl off to bed with a heat pack until it passes - usually a couple of hours, and then I am totally fatigued for the rest of the day.
Last year, I linked it with eating too much fruit, but when on holiday in Greece, I was fine.
It has started up again recently. I have been for an ultrasound and they say everything is fine. The GP has tried prescribing Mebeverine and Buscopan, neither of which do anything at all.
Yesterday I had the fatigue first and when I got up, was struck down with a tremendous pain across the whole abdomen, which pretty well lasted the rest of the day.
I am so fed up with this. I cannot do anything when the pain strikes but don't seem to be any nearer to finding out how to prevent it. (Unfortunately if it is caused by stress, the stresses in our family are permanent.)
Does anyone else suffer from this?
I would love to hear any thoughts or ideas, thank you.
