Hi all I am new to this, I have been having pains since before Christmas in my right lower rib area, radiates round my side into my back and sometimes in my shoulder blade, I am really bloated, ( burping alot) I have been doing slimming world since January and have lost 1.5 stone I have been eating lots of fruit and drinking sugar free diet cokes, I wouldn't say excessive. I have been eating healthy, walking drinking water what more can I do?
I was admitted into hospital as they thought it was appendicitis, I was given Morphine, It was horrendous I had Ultra sound and CT and all came back " Normal" I was sent home and told its muscular??? I have had this pain recurring for a while now so I just thought " Muscular" however the last few weeks have been agonizing so I took a trip to the doctor and he referred me for another Ultrasound suspected Gallstones, I have had it done today and she said there was no obvious signs but its not to say I haven't passed one. She said I would need further tests as it could be digestive problems, So I am asking if it sounds like IBS? Also is there any specific thing I should avoid? I have had enough now I have a baby and a young child to look after and its so painful and I just feel crap most days like going back to bed ( which obviously I cant) I would just like some friendly advice.
