Hi, glad to have found this forum. I have been having symptoms since I was 19-6 years ago. It started with gas and bloating after meals, now it is extreme pain, cramps, bloating, gas after eating-and it wont go away once it starts. I have pain from my hips all the way up under my ribs, my sides and even my back. Anyone else? I went to a GI doc and they did a barium enema test on me and said it was clean and normal-no abnormalities. They said I have IBS b/c of my symptoms. But I do not have diarreha anymore then normal and I usually do go everyday-if I dont the pain is worse. Sometimes I have to strain and now I think I have a hemorroid (pleasant) How would I know if I have one? I know there is something back there.Anyhow I have been on Levbid and it didnt help so I stopped that now I just take enzymes and it sometimes helps a little. I am tired of always being sick and I feel like it has turned me into a hypochondriac b/c I am contantly searching for the reason I am sick all the time. Can someone tell me if my symptoms are normal for IBS even though I am not really constipated or having diarreha. I have the cramps, pain, bloating daily after meals and have since I was 19 with no breaks. Any help or information would be so appreciated.
