Here I am again. 3 years of dealing with my ‘IBS’ I now have new symptoms and having to go through the same process 3 years ago starting with bloods.

Started with bloating 4 weeks ago appetite was good thought nothing of it but now I have a real pressure in my back behind my rib cage pains which I can only describe as a feeling of something inside my body pushing on my back and stomach (making me bloated) often laying down is better but sometimes I get pain left rib cage through to the back.

Totally have no appetite now every day is a spiral of worry. First it was diarrhea now pale stools for 3 days and I’m going 3/4 times a day. Totally lost. I’m 33 and I’m trying to hard that my drs take me seriously. I’ve been given omeprazole which is not doing anything. I feel so weak, I feel so tight and uncomfortable and I’m so frightened.

As you can gather I suffer from anxiety but this is a new level. I’m so low

I mean could 3 years ago been an early warning? I dunno I’ve felt pretty well just dealt with the ibs.

Last few weeks never felt so gassy from both ends. So weird

All blood tests come back normal. FBC, LFT, Calcium, Amylase, blood sugar etc no inflammatory markers. Booked an ultrasound and referral to gastroenterology. Here we go again...
