So I've had IBS for quit awhile. Like many of you I experience a lot of stomach pain after eating and such like cramping, bloating, diarrhea, and my body goes numb. However, the past 3 years I've experience an exercising pain in the lower left stomach kind of above the kidney. Anyways it'll start after a few minutes of exercising like say 15 jumping jacks. The pain is like a fist clenching ball that feels like a knife going through. A lot worse then a regular side ache. The weird things is sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. And I'm not able to pinpoint the food/reason. Anyone have this.Also, does anyone get really bad bloating/cramping/gas just walking around such as in a mall.

I have IBS-D and have bloating, wind and severe left sided pain, all day every day, it doesnt matter what I am doing . I have tried low dose antidepressants for the pain and lots of different pain killers, but nothing works. I saw the gastro specialist yesterday and he said it is very severe pain from the Ibs and it can be really bad, I thought no kidding. He is going to refer me to a pain management clinic, but the wait is about 8-10 weeks, he said most good pain killers are opiate based and they can cause more pain in the long term. I am also going to have another CT Scan to make sure nothing else is causing the pain, that should be in about 3-4 weeks.I dont know what to do for the bloating and gas, sometimes its so embarrassing as I can fart without trying to.
