Does anyone experience these symptoms?

Hello, I have been 'diagnosed' with IBS as a result of no other cause found what's going on with me.

I've been having a horrible pain in my left side (just under hip bone) for weeks which has now started to radiate right around my pelvis causing lots of back pain.

I on occasion have constipation but have been like this ever since I was a little girl. I have recently had one week of constant diarrhoea and no appetite at all which is still causing 'soft poos' at the moment.

I don't have any bloating or blood in my stools and i haven't noticed any connection with the food I eat.

I have had a full pelvic ultrasound, chest and abdominal Xray plus an abdominal and pelvic CT scan and still no one knows what's wrong.

I have been referred to gastro so I am waiting to hear back and hopefully have a camera to see if there is anything going on in the bowels.

Does anyone have these hip and back pains?? I'm really struggling and it's ruining my life, dreading even thinking about going back to work.

Please help. Thank you for reading!

  • Yes i have had them with my IBS. At first i paniced thinking it was my apendix! I drink peppermint and chamile teas to help sooth the pains.

    Im male but i believe they can minic labour pains - its not pleasnt and i struggle to walk with it sometimes

  • For constipation try a spoonful of extra virgin olive oil in the morning on an empty stomach 30 min before breakfast and a spoonful two hours before bedtime as well (on an empty stomach also) im surprised not many people know about this. It's a simple and gentle remedy that works wonders on my gut if I ever feel constipation or that dull "twisty" feeling in my abdomen. Look it up and read on it :)

  • hi, going to try your suggestion about Olive oil.could you please tell me what size spoon you use.thanks in advance!

  • Not a small sugar spoon, you need to use one of those regular spoons You use for say, your cereal or soup :) also, the taste might make you gag so have a sip of water or maybe something to take the flavor out. (I use a taste of applesauce)

  • thank you for your prompt reply Shesays89!

  • I get left sided pain to that radiates down my leg and around to my kidney area! The doc has put me on constella but doesn't seem to be helping! I've had a gastroscopy that flagged up gastritis and inflamed and twisted upper digestive system but I will be having a colonoscopy if this med doesn't help...The left side pain is where your large intestine is and my GI has said that ibs can cause this.
