My problem with IBS is constipation. I can go up to 5 days and not have a bowel movement. After about the 2nd day my lower right side starts to hurt (colon area). I know its not my appendix because I no longer have one. After having a bowel movement the pain subsides. Anyone else have this type of problem? I also usually have bad stomach cramps too due to the long duration of not having a bowel movement.

Yes, I also have the right side pain, esp. when I'm C or I have gas rolling around in there. I fortunately don't go for as many days without a BM ( I think I'd go crazy ).. but I almost always have pain in my right side... and I've had all the 'tests' and its not my appendix or my you aren't the only one!

Are you drinking enough water?? or getting enough fiber in your diet?? Have you discussed this C problem with your doctor?? I'm not accusing...I just know there are ways to help relieve the C.. that way you won't be in so much misery.... drink OCEANS of water and stool softeners like Colace aren't bad occasionally... just don't do the laxative thing!!

Good luck!
