Hello , found u r website & thought I would jump in & ask for some help !Brief background 46 yr old female , suffered debilitating Endometriosis for many yrs ( after being told I had IBS ) finally had total Hysterectomy 4 yrs ago ( NO hrt ) plus Ive had 2 laps & 2 c-sections !Now the long story begins - get comfy !Ive always suffered with what I call " an IFFY tummy " always seemed to have on going pains - never really had good BM daily , always have to take a laxative of some description ,approx 2 yrs ago now I started having really bad tummy & kidney pains , like a period type pain that moves from my right kidney area to my groin , Then it turns to a horrible dull ache in my lower tummy & back , cant eat as it feels worse when I do so Im loosing weight .had various tests at the hospital , NO kidney stones found ( but I do suffer with UTIs ) . This pain comes on V quickly & can last for hours , normally the whole day , Nurofen helps but I normally have to take Voltorol to get rid of it completely . This is really ruining my life atm , Ive always got the tummy & kidney pains , cant ever make plans to go out as Im always " ill " - friends are not calling anymore - I just so fedup with it all , & I really cant face going to the drs again , I think they think Im mad !! Please is there any one out there that feels like me , any one have these symptoms ?Is this IBS or what ....I dunno ....any replys welcomed - even just to say hi ...please ?! PS have posted on General board also - hope this is ok -

mitig-I am dealing with the same thing. I just had a lap for what I thought was endo...nope. I have had pain in my left groin area and have had every test run. I am finally going for a colonoscopy on Friday and I am only 36. I understand your frustration and dealing with Dr's and pain is just no fun. Get some answers for yourself, find the right Dr. Hang in there!

Hello all...Im new here! I read alot on this site and found the people very understanding. I think Im driving my family nuts with my problems. I have been in pain for the last 6 months..tummy pain and irregular bowel movements,loss weight, heartburn,and so much gas I wanna scream. I was on zelnorm for a bit, but didnt help the pain..just had to go alot more. Cant sleep at nite..whats a good nite sleep? I just started seeing a gastro doc...he has me schudeled for the good ole colonoscopy..he has me on Bentyl and a I guess a new drug called amitiza. (needless to say not good stuff if u faint on ur bedroom floor from it)..but who knows? I have been watching my diet and trying to find any trigger food that may intenisfy this pain. But mostly..I feel like a hermit...no life for like 6 months. Its driving me nuts! Any suggestions would great..Im just goin crazy here and cant take this pain anymore! Thanks all..have a good one!
