I have had ibs C&D for 13 years or so. I now have a pain in my far left side. It is straight across from my belly button all the way to my side. I noticed today when I was having one of my "spells" the pain on my side was horrible! I have just about had it. I was on the way out my door to go to my daughters band concert and had to back out at the last minute. IBS has pretty much ruined my life. I usually have about 3 bad spells a week but the cramps are so severe anymore I just can't take it. The other days I am so constipated I feel like my intestines are going to explode! Anyone else have the same problems?
