Horrible tummy pain

Post by whoopsie » Mon Mar 29, 2010 2:45 pm

For the last week or so, I've been getting really nasty pain in my stomach. It's not cramping like period pain, but in the same area. I have IBS, but I'm not constipated or loose so it can't be to do with that I don't think.

It hurts mostly when I walk, to the point where i can't walk properly (have to limp a bit) but now it's hurting when I sit down too. For a few days it was on the left, then the right and now it's all the way across. I've tried to book a doctors appointment, but they're fully booked till after easter. I might have to go to a walk in centre.

Anyone got any ideas what it could be? It hurts :(

I don't know, Whoops, it could be almost anything from cystitis to a hernia, but you ought to rule out anything serious. Can't you get an emergency appointment? Persistent and worsening abdominal pain should be investigated.

Incidentally, I can get severe IBS pain without any effect on my "looseness" or otherwise.

i would get it checked as soon as possible.

it could be linked to your IBS, some kind of blockage, swelling or ulceration.
