IBS is nerve pain.Nerve pain doesn't show up on medical tests designed to look for everything but nerve pain.It is like taking your TV to the repair person and leaving the remote at home. If the remote is shorted out he'll tell you the TV is fine even though it won't do the right things when you get it home and push the buttons on the shorted out remote.Most of the worst pain in the world is "nothing is wrong" other than the nerves signalling pain are doing it all the time when they should not. Look up stuff like phantom limb pain when people feel their limb that is NOT there going through all sorts of excrutiating things because the nerves are still going off.Have you tried (or found a doctor who will actually treat IBS appropriately and will prescribe the following) antispasmodics like Levsin or Bentyl or antidepressants, mostly Tricyclics and SNRI's although if you have a lot of constipation then SSRI's may be a good choice.
