At the start of the year, I was given a colonoscopy and diagnosed with IBS. At first, I accepted the diagnosis and went on my merry way.. Tried to alter my diet. Tried antispasmodics (even though they were coated in lactose - I did inform the doctor I am intolerant).. I stay reasonably active as my job keeps me on my feet for up to forty hours per week.
Anyway, I keep having flare ups of severe pain. Not quite like an IBS pain. It's much more aggressive, around my navel and lower abdomen.. Very persistent. I have used deep heat and hot water bottles as I can't take ibuprofen and paracetamol. I'm not sure what else I can do.
There's no history of IBS in my family but there is IBD and bowel cancer. I don't believe I have cancer at all - I don't bleed that much when passing motion. I just wonder if I may have IBD/Chron's instead?
Any words of advice? Opinions? Shall I just see the doctor on Monday if I'm still in pain? It'll be day five by then.
