since September 2015 I have been having pain on the left side just below my ribs that is brought on by eating. I can only eat small amounts of food before feeling full up and suffer from constant nausea. I saw a General surgeon last year who had no idea what the problem was. I am now on my second Gastro consultant who still has no idea what the problem is. CT scan, ultrasounds, Gastroscopy and Gastric Emptying tests have all been normal. The Gastro doc has now told me as the tests are clear he thinks it's IBS. I told him my bowels are normal so it can't be that but he insists it is. Everything I have read says that to have IBS you have some degree of altered bowel habits. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to have IBS without actually having a problem with your bowels?
