iBS rib pain help!

The GP has basically told me I have IBS but still awaiting blood test to confirm, but this is all new to me all these pains in my stomach varying from stabbing to burning prickling aching, And it's been radiating to my lower back and shoulder blades but the thing that's scaring me is pain on my lower right rib seems to be persistent when I eat a lot or when I breathe sometimes :-( I'm scared and haven't felt right for a long time feel as if my GP isn't helping enough is anyone else going through this? I'm always worried the pains going to hospitalise me :-(

  • Hi

    I dealt with this earlier this year :(

    If you are not allergic and it does not interact with any current medications: Ginger tea.

    It's helped loads and dunno if it's in my head but after 2 days it was a huge difference.

    Usually acid reflux goes along with IBS. That would explain the pain in between the shoulder blades

  • Have you ever try acupuncture or reiki? I heard it works. I am doing acupuncture 3x a week and it's really helping with my anxiety. Also, try ginger tea. Do an allergy test to see if you're allergic to anything you eat. I hope you feel better. God will heal you
