I'll try to be brief. I had my gall bladder out in 2010 and since then I've had IBS/D acid reflux, severe intestinal cramping and bloating. to the point I've lost 2 jobs. I don't have the normal constipation or diarrhea IBS. I just get huge spasms and bloating. I've noticed a few times right before a flair up I will get a sharp shooting pain in my chest on the left side. its enough to shock and startle me. but I ve noticed in the last 2 weeks ive had a lingering chest pain or ache in the same spot, when my intestines aren't cramping I don't seem to notice any pain. but when Im bloated or cramping its there. some times more intense than others. I also notice that after a bowl movement it seems to go away for a few min. but as soon as Im cramping again its right back. does anyone have any experience with this?
