Ibs or something else (can humid hot weather bring it on?)

Hi everybody!last night & this morning i had cramps across front & right side of my tummy in the lower part.they have also been shooting up to middle of stomach & under my ribs on right side.is this my ibs or is it something else?it is very hot & humid where i live & can the weather affect your bowels do you think?it's making me bit anxious cos not had that before with it going right up to ribs.

Hi there, I doubt if its the weather that is causing it....however, anxiety (which can be caused by the weather because of the way we react to it) could be contributing to the way you feel. Make SURE you are drinking PLENTY of water ...plain old water...no other liquids count....

also what it sounds like it just plain ol' regular gas pain...which can come in many different ways with different feelings/symptoms... You might try some anti-gas pills like Phazyme...or GasX ... good luck to you!

I am not a doctor I just try to keep on on the information , and I do notice when its really hot out and I am in the heat a while I start to get sick .

Yeah I noticed that myself too.I also noticed that there are more stomach bugs around sometimes in summer which can make it even worse.
