Pain in left side just below ribs. Intermittent, but can be exacerbated by movement, not all the time, just some of the time. Sharp pain, lasting a second and then gone, but happens every few minutes, or when I move wrongly. I've been to the Doctor and he had a really good feel of everything, from hips to ribs and could find nothing. He reckons it's a bad attack of ibs. I have never had it this badly before. Could he be right or should I be asking for further investigations?
Thank you.

Bumping, because on page three and I'm a neurotic desperate woman!

Are you having other symptoms along with this pain? Do you normally have IBS?
How long have you been having this pain? I had similar pain for about 2 weeks, high up in rib cage, on the left, DH thought it was my heart (he is a slight drama queen) and insisted I see the GP. She told me it was wind! I took deflatine and the pain did go away, if it hadn't I would've gone back.

Thank you. Yes, I normally have IBS and proctitis. It's usually on the right side and lots of going to the loo, never on the left so this has come hard. It's been a week, so I shall try the deflatine.
Thank you.
