Hi, i am new to the community. Have previously been diagnosed with IBS whilst at school - mainly down to stress. Had good few years with little to no flare ups as controlled by diet. However last year I have been suffering from similar symptoms but at the same time whole new symptoms. Have bad blood tests and awaiting to have a colonoscopy as consultants not 100% sure if IBS or not. My question really is the hardest bit I have found is that one of the symptons is a pain rib area below my breasts when I eat and its this pain & discomfort that is the most difficult. Does anyone have any recommendations to try to ease pain? I take buscopan that help (most of the time) to take top off stomach pain but does not touch the other. Its got to the stage I am having to take more and more time off work due to the pain getting so uncomfortable.
Thank you and sorry if that makes no sense!
