I've been told that i have Constipative predominat IBS, yet after being told that the pain is worse and now happens daily.
Bloating all times of the day, cramping to the left hand side of tummy button, and just under the ribs, nausea often.
I have found i cannot eat onions, potatoes and atrifical sweetener...and im beginning to think something in some breads as well.
This has been happning now for 12 or more months, and its really bugging me, its not a critical enough condition to go to the hospital as they will reject my case and send me back home, im sick of having to get more medication, and pay for more visits as it costs too bloody much, and its not convient.
Is there anything else this can be, as the doctors here don't seem to care and they seem only to see me for more $$.

Here is a link to a webpage on IBS. It has a general overview, some treatment and self care ideas, managing stress, lifestyle and diet changes etc. People who suffer with IBS need long term treatment resolutions not just short term goals for treatment. You may also want to consider joining a community support group if one is available in your area.
I hope you find this somewhat useful.
