My symptoms change quite often and I begin to question if it's still IBS or something new....is there any stable element that could put my mind at ease that it's just more of the same thing? For example, I had only pain for 8 years. Then the last two years I developed fluctuation in bowel movements with mostly constipation. Then this past year I have been to the emergency room twice with intense pain in upper right quadrant. Now my hormones are so screwed up I can't think straight and every symptom is exacerbated. Sometimes I have shortness of breath, sometimes I am faint and light headed with a very empty feeling in my stomach. All of this happening randomly is confusing. Any light on the subject?
