Ok, I admit it. Maybe I am a hypocondriac, but this is wearing me down. I'm at 132 now. I felt moderate pain under my ribs starting about Saturday. By Monday knew I was in trouble and went on water only. Tuesday the pain started getting worse went left and right, mostly left. Felt like a football was under my right rib. Tuesday nite was so bad I went on pain killers, ended up taking them every 4 hours. Wednesday off work. Pain finally stopped Wednesday night. Diahrrea started Wednesday nite and Thursday morning. One big movement which partially floated. Feel really drained. Only on water since Monday. Called primary and he said gastro problem. Called gastro and he prescribed levsin. Don't know what that is. I asked him about pancreatitus and he lost it. Said "for the upteenth time, no, you don't have it. we've tested you for months, enzymes and blood work, everything except the ercp which I don't want to do, because it's so dangerous. no, no, no you don't have it. You have a very severe IBS problem and you don't tolerate pain worth a damn." Take your medication and start back on that elavil like I told ya. (Sort of got angry with me. But I'm so frightened when I get in pain). Does anybody get these what I call spells and then go back to sort of normal??? Am I crazy or what??? Sorry, just depressed and all. Everything is going straight through me and coming out partially digested or either it's diahrrea or constipation, and that doggone horrible pain. I hate this. Please help.
