So good to find this site. I am new and have had symptoms of IBS on and off for about 20 years, usually short lived. I started another bout in September with dreadful abdominal pain , sometimes down my left side, usually any where between my bikini line and tummy button.
I have recently seen a Gastroenterologist. Who could find nothing untoward feeling my tummy. I am now waiting fo a Colonoscopy at the end of January. Meanwhile the pain continues, sometimes I get a few “ good days” pain free. I feel quite low at the moment as pain persists, I don’t know what to eat, I cannot identify the culprit, so cut out most things containing g wheat , lactose etc.
Can anyone confirm these symptoms as typical ?.
