Ibs pain

What causes the pain that comes with ibs? I can understand how there is pain in ibs that is caused by a food intolerance because there will probably be some physical damage/inflammation. But if the ibs is caused by bacteria imbalance why is there pain, is it gas. Also how do you know if you have gas, would you pass wind a lot? I am not sure if I have gas or if i have a damaged inflamed gut all I know is that my stomach is tender when pressure put on it.

Hi Mikey1536, in my case it's stomach cramps which are very severe and having loose bowel movements. Hope this helps you

I 've just seen a message that said there is now a test for IBS called ibschek. I can't help you about the pain but to get a specific diagnosis would put your mind at rest and save invasive tests. Good luck


It may be intense trapped wind. Apparently trapped wind can even move around and give you chest pains too.

I get those pains sometimes when I eat foods I'm not supposed to. I'm not sure of the exact cause though.

Best of luck
