Know how you feel, I have recently started to get a pain/ache below the belly which came about after bad D. I aslo get a little ache at the top of the bum. I just take a couple of painkillers and hope for the best. Started taking Immodium yesterday and this seems to help.

Yeah, I used to get that alot, I am sure it was my transverse colon and its muscle spasms that I was feeling. Food moving along from right to left side.

Well i went to the doctor for my follow up and i told him about the strange little pain. and he depressed my stomach. i am sure you know about that. when he pressed it in the spot i though the pain was i felt a sharp pain in a lower area. it was almost as though i could outline my colon or small intestine or whatever is in there. but i could feel it move and shift. and he did this on both sides. when he pressed on the left side i felt pain on my right. when pressed on my right i felt the pain in my lower right, exactly where it is tender.his primary diagnoses was colitis. i was not a happy camper! all of a sudden IBS looked like a groovy thing. well anyway, i will not know until i see the grouchy gastrointestinal guy next week. i hope he is in a better mood then he was last time i saw him a year ago.thanks guys. i hope you feel well.

Thanks for asking, the grouchy dr. said it was IBS and i have to stop all dairy products and start konsyl fibre drink (yuck) and metamucil crackers. no red meat and just eat fibre and more fibre. and to stop smoking. i am doing most of the above. have not been able to find the Konsyl. so after the samples ran out i continued on the metamucil drink. just twice a day. instead of the Konsyl once a day. oh, and i still smoke.and he told me to exercise. and i have to go back in a month. he has the personality of a postage stamp. but my primary insist i see him. i am still not regular, but i am doing what he wants me to do, and i am getting a lot out of this site. i was just happy that he said most of the things that i read about here. and i had to respect him for that.

Hi Roe,well, it's a relief your GI didn't concur on the colitis. I hope you get some benefit from the things you are trying. I too was advised to avoid dairy when my gut was in pain. However I found no relief upon doing so. I started taking calcium supplement.I'm surprised you are taking the metamucil x2 a day instead of just once. I hope it is working well for you.p.s. the exercise helped me too. Just going for a walk away from work at lunch and doing some stairs, dancing to music & gentle stretches at home in the evening was a good start.
