Hi all,I am new to this forum, but I am very concerned about my wife's condition. She is 35 years old and has had very bad stomach pains for about 2 weeks now. We went to the emergency room twice last week to no avail. She went to the gastro today and he said she probably has IBS, but there is no "D" to go along with it. She is currently having a CAT scan done at a hospital, so we will have to see what that reveals. The only thing that has given her relief from the constant day/night pain is her taking pain medication - which relieves the pain at the top of her stomach for a while. Is intense, nonstop stomach pain a normal part of IBS? I am very worried - she has had an upper GI already done with nothing found. I just don't think it is IBS, since she is now having any bowel problems. She is only 35, but has had her gallbladder removed. Any suggestions on how she can get pain relief without the pain meds?
