  1. This past September I started feeling pain in the lower abdomen. Soon after, chronic constipation set in and never went away. The pain comes and goes, nothing excruciating yet. This month I reset my diet and began eating very simple clean foods, it helped some. The only way I can evacuate my bowels is by drinking magnesium citrate or castor oil, psyllium or pure Epsom salt does not work. I am a middle aged man who never had these health issues before. I saw an internal medicine doctor and she found nothing through abdominal ultrasound nor blood panels. A CT scan is scheduled in November. I know I need to see a Gastroenterologist who specializes in the digestion system. If anyone can walk me through the trials and errors of reaching there IBS conclusion, that would be greatly appreciated. Your insight is truly welcomed. Thanks
  2. Hi, I am new to this group, but I am wondering if any one has insight. I have had an ongoing issue with what my PCP believes is IBS-D, but I never received a firm diagnosis so now I am seeing a GI. About 10 years ago I had a pretty intense bought with a virus which caused both vomitting and diarrhea for a week straight. Once I recovered, I noticed I had irregular stools. This problem has only gotten more irregular and now is to the point where I only have loose stools and diarrhea with urgency, but no incontinence. I have recently had blood work and stool samples ordered by my GI which to my surprise came back normal - negative for inflammation, cdif, parasite, blood, etc with enzymatic tests coming back normal. My GI advised me to abstain from eating foods with lactose and I have, but I'm still having problems. Due to covid I am highly anxious to go in for an appointment with my GI, but I know an endoscopy is the next step for me. I am wondering if any one might have similar experiences? Thank you

  4. Hi everyone! I'm Lin. I am a researcher in chronic abdominal pain, based in London. My research team is working on a project on chronic abdominal pain in collaboration with King's College London and Guy's and St Thomas NHS Trust in London. We understand that abdominal pain is complex, and can have significant physical, emotional, and social impact on your life. We are investigating the utility of a form of cognitive and behavioural therapy (CBT) for improving the wellbeing and quality of life for people with chronic abdominal pain. As part of the project, we would like to survey some abdominal pain sufferers to inform the development of such a treatment. If you have chronic abdominal pain and willing to support our research, please clink on the weblink below to participate in the survey. We truly appreciate your kind help. https://kcliop.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9RyIRIWgggFzeVT
