About 10 years ago I started having severe stomach and upper GI pain. At that time is was localized to that area. Nothing helped and no particular thing seemed to cause it. It just came and left me doubled over in pain for days. A doctor diagnosed me with IBS 2 years ago. She said” you have depression and anxiety therefor you have IBS”. She gave me tramacet for pain. I have been treated for deppression and anxiety for 20 years so that part is right. Over the years I have tried every diet, meditation, buscapan, OCT medication, probiotic to no avail. In the past 2 years it has moved down to my abdomen with all the textbook symptons for IBS-C. The buscapan gives relief for the abdomen spasm but I still have debilitating stomach pain. I lived on Mexico for 8 of the last 10 years and was treated several times with antibiotics and anti parasite medication a year for Ecoli and parasites. I go back to my doctor this Friday. Any advice or suggestions for some tests. I have never had any diagnostic test done. My life is ruined by this. There has to be some answers out there. Thanks.
