Hi guys,I have bad lower left abdominla pain that gets worse AFTER I had been to the loo. It also gets worse when I walk about and if I have not eaten all day. The weird thig is that I play alot of squash and whilst playing the pain goes only to come back after the exercise. I have been to the doctor and had loads of tests including an endoscopy (camera up the jacksy) and he seems to think it must be IBS. I have tried pepermint tablets, colofat and ant-spasmodic but mothing helps. I do have lengthy periods where the only symptons are irregular bowel movements with lots of wind and mucus. But I slao get several weeks of this nagging pain have any of you got any 'general' advice as to wht I could try to aleviate this pain that is getting me down!

Huh, really, Kris? That is interesting. I have IBS,and often get pain on my right side if I 'go' weirdly or something. Also, I am high stressed so my shoulders tense a lot. Plus I have horrible feet (I sound delightful don't I)...they are severly high arched which causes pain and whatnot and could lead to back pain...maybe a chiropracter wouldn't be a bad idea for me. hm.

all of my pain/spasms are on the lower left as well... when i get insurance - i'm going to the chiro!!!!! it's weird because it started on the high right side, so my dr. did an ultrasound of my gallbladder i think, but everything was completely normal - but the lower left won't stop. i'll check the chiro thing asap! thanks krislynn

My main pain issue with IBS is in the lower left side. I think its in the area of the sigmoid colon and a very common place for people with IBS to have pain. Wish there was a common fix for it.

It took me a while to see a chiro and now I cant because I lost my insurance!
I also always felt like I have an irritated bladder..getting up at night cause I always felt like i had to go..and sometimes felt like my urthrea was spasming..weird! But they adjusted over my pelvic bone..and I actually slept 4 hrs straight, went to the bathroom, and fell back to sleep till morning..it was wonderful..Sleeping is when your body heals the most....They helped me soooo much!! I never thought they worked with digestive disorders...also they help with female problems...Nancy, i never knew it, but my whole left side along my spine is sore to the touch, and the left side of my neck also was too...When that was relieved by the chiro, so were my ibs symptoms..sadly they are coming back,,but as soon as i get new ins, I am there!
