I am a female, 46 years old.
I started feeling abdominal cramps months ago , off and on.
Then, it became worse with time. Now, I have been VERY bloated for a while ( 2 weeks), i have a lot of abdominal cramps and funny noises in my abdomen non stop. I use the bathroom A LOT more than usual. No constipation or diarrhea. The discomfort/ pain i feel seems to be to the left (in my back also, lower left side ).
Did CT scan abdomen . Nothing . Getting colonoscopy next week.
Can IBS cause constant bloating. Mine isn’t related to bowel movements at all. It is non stop. I look 5 month pregnant and feel contant “ subtle pain” thoughout my abdomen.
Would appreciate any suggestions.
Can IBS be “ constant” ?
