I have IBS-D and also chronic left sided abdominal pain, its there 24/7, no tablets or low dose antidepressants have been able to take the pain away, some days I cry in pain. I saw the gastro specialist monday and he is sending me to a pain management clinic to see if anything can be done for me. There is a 8-10 week wait for an appointment though. What am I supposed to do in the meantime, anyone got any suggestions, please. ? and has anyone been to a pain management clinic and benefited from it. ?
