Type of pain IBS

I am new to this group and was hoping someone can relate to my experience. When I have a flare up I have burning pain in my lower right side and pain in my back to! I have been diagnosed with IBS but have constant fear it’s something worse. Are these types of pains anyone else has experienced? And does anyone have any recommendations on how to deal with it? Thank you 😊

  1. Welcome to the group! I have not experienced this but I highly recommend going to the doctor about this. Better to be safe and get that checked out. Let us know what you find! All the best, Michaela (irritablebowelsyndrome.net Team Member)

    1. Hi Octavia It sounds like you might be having gall bladder attacks I got that same pain but it got so bad I went to hospital and they said I had a lot of gall stones so I got my gall bladder taken out. the pains went away but some times I get phantom pains there . But it also could be your constipated too the stool starts to back up and starts giving you pain. I'm no doctor just I felt the same pains before it sounds like them to me. I would stay away from greasy food and cheese that causes gall bladder stones and constipation cause I ate a lot of both greasy food and cheese back then. But please see a doctor just to make sure your ok. I hope you get better take care.

      1. hi, did you speak to dr. This sounds very similar to what I get! And pain all in my hips. I have the colonoscopy soon but have been told it’s IBS but not sure!

        1. Appreciate you sharing. Glad you have an appointment soon and hopefully you'll get some answers. Wishing you some relief very soon. Best, Kelly, Irritablebowelsyndrome.net Team Member

        1. Thanks for sharing, I hope these comments remind you that you are not alone in this. Have you noticed any difference in symptoms with different foods? Be sure to speak with your doctor about any new, changing or concerning symptoms, if you haven't already.
