I am still feeling very ill. My stomach right under my ribs on both sides (more on the left) is very very sore. I am nausous and am passing and belching a lot of gas and am very weak. I just feel like I'm going to pass out. My blood pressure has gone up but that could be from the pain. It's staying around 130 over 90 with a heart rate of 90 to 100.I ate a little chicken and rice and tapioca at 4:00 yesterday. At 11:00 the pain hit big time. I was up taking pepto bismol which seemed to help a little. The pain was in my stomach and left side.I made an appointment with Dr. Ritter and he can see me today at 3:00. I am very worried. Does this sound like IBS, ulcers or what? When I was in the ER they did a cat scan and said the liver and pancreas were normal; however I had a bacterial infection and there was blood in my urine apparently.Anybody got any ideas? I feel like ####.

I just went through 3 years of testing because I had the same pains as you especially the left side,I thought I had adhesions or blocked bowel or a bunch of other things,finally one specialist said it was chronic IBS.I thought it has to be more than that,I had pain all the time and worse around 4 or 5 o'clock in the morning.He put me on Zelnorm and my life changed and became bearable.If I were you I would have the tests done to rule eyerything out first,it is frustrating but you have to know for sure.The pain on my left side is also worse than the right side.Thank god for Zelnorm.
