Patient Comments: Abdominal Pain - IBS

Is your abdominal pain due to IBS? If so, how was it diagnosed?

Comment from: bea, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: March 25

The pain is on my left side near the bottom of my rib cage. When I bend to get something and pressure is applied to my left side, it hurts all the way down my left side. I have had diarrhea a lot ever since my gall bladder was removed. I had a colonoscopy in December. I am taking Nexium, kelp and thyroid medication.
