Well this a new one on me

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi people, can anybody explain why i feel so rubbish? The pain under belly button and across my back and bowel i totally understand, the sinus pain that this windy weather gives me i understand but why are my legs really axhy? Not been told it's flu, no cold type symptoms but achy legs and shoulders, why? Does ibs send pain all over the place. My bowel is extremely painful, i find it exceptionally difficult to poo, as it all feels stuck. Is this flu or just a coincidence? Any one shed any light on this?

    Hi Sam.has the doctor confirm that you have ibs,and yes ibs can cause you too have problems like you feel that your poo is stuck as ibs sufferer are known to feel that you never think that you have finished your pooing.You will get pains in your bowels if you do have ibs ,however speak to your doctor and let him/her do tests to confirm you have ibs as their is many other reason with the same diagnosis .

      Hi marsh, thank you for asking, my doctor confirmed ibs 12 years ago but i am awaiting a camera test for coeliac disease. I don't think it's coeliac disease though i have always thought it was something other than IBS. I think i've had gastritis all the time and vitamin b12 deficiency. All the symptoms fit! Hopefully a camera will tell me what this is finally, i'm bored of such a bland diet!

    Hi Sam,don't forget that gastritis is a side effect of ibs. so what you have said ,i do believe that you do indeed have ibs
