Hello name change for this althou I don't think anyone would know me but it's a bit embarrassing... I'm in the midst of GP diagnosing me with IBS. Probably because nothing else can be identified. Haven't had any tests just examined at the doctors. My question is if anyone has IBS do you get pain in the right side of your lower abdomen or pelvic area? I get this every morning on waking. Sometimes it continues through the day. I can only explain it as being like a heaviness in that area. GP says it's spasms but I'm not convinced. Any advice welcomed.

Just bumping as I'm worried about this although GP has said I haven't anything serious.

That’s where I get my pain when my crohns is flaring.
What other symptoms do you have?
IBS is meant to be a diagnosis only after they have ruled out any other conditions that might cause your symptoms. Have they sent a stool sample for a calprotectin test at the very least?

Thank you for replying! No all they have is ultrasound for fibroids but nothing found. My symptoms are constipation and wind!

Not meaning to drop feed but since I stopped having dairy it's helped.
