Hi all. I've only just joined this group and wondered if I can get some advice. IBS is new to me.
So this is now week 5. I've had back cramping lower stomach cramps sometimes feel like period pain. Waves of feeling sick. And bad wind! 2 weeks ago the doctors did a positive pregnancy test. I am on the pill so was very shocked. 3 days later I came on my period (I was currently on my 7 day break) they did a scan, blood test and another urine and all was negative. They are totally baffled as to whether I had a miscarriage or was it a false positive. I still have the cramping feeling sick, wind and very very tired. My stomach feels big! Keep thinking have they got pregnancy wrong but it's impossible. IBS is now being mentioned. They just left me with try cutting food out. But i don't know where to start. Any advice and how long do you cut each food out for to see if it helps. Also do my symptoms sound like IBS? Would I wake up feeling sick or would it just be after eating? Confused! Someone said I should ask for a blood test to rule other stuff out. Help!
