Hi just wondering if anyone else has experienced extremely severe abdominal pain from IBS?
Before I was diagnosed I ended up in the emergency room a few times because the pain was excruciating and I thought something really serious was wrong, only to be told that all my tests came back clear.
I still get severe pains once a month or so and mild to moderate pains 3-4 a month, but when it is severe I physically can’t stand up all I can do is lay on my back with a heat pack on my tummy which seems to be the only thing to sort of ease the pain. I take buscopan and colese and de-gas for the pain which help sometimes but not when it’s severe.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is it normal for IBS pain to be so severe? Is there a medication that helps people with pain?
