my IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is the very worst pain and discomfort I suffer with fibro. I can hardly describe all the different types of pain I have felt from it. i have seen gastro dr. who can find NOTHING wrong. i have recently embarked on an adventure with a new dr. he at least takes me seriously. i have been taking 3 daily doses of Bentyl (dicyclomine) 20 mg. and it is helping. it is a gut antispasmotic.

Kayla have you ever went to a gastrointestinal doctor. I experienced that same thing. They performed a delayed emptying study to see how fast you digest food. After they did that they found out that I have gastreoparezee. I would suggest reading up on this an see if it fits your description. It can cause nausea, vomiting,extreme abdominal pain that mimics a heart attack. Definitely you want to see gastrointestinal doctor. Good luck!

I think that IBS is related to fibromyalgia. I read that somewhere. Sorry I don't remember where. I have IBS.

A couple years ago I was having severe pains in my abdomen. I went to a gastro dr. Nobody could find out anything. I would be doubled up on the floor in excrutiating pain. I went to a different hospital er. They took out my gallbladder. I had gall-stones. No pain after that.... well, not in my abdomen. Everywhere else hurt, you know, back, hands, legs, arms, head, feet...
God Bless.

If I were in your shoes, I'd make an appointment to.see a gastroenterologist. They're specialists who deal with every tube and the organ attached to it between the throat and the rectum. You could have irritable bowel syndrome which can cause all kinds of abdominal pain and bloating. And you could have gastro-esophageal reflux disease which merely means the the flap between your stomach and esophagus is weak so stomach acid is getting up your esophagus and causing really bad heart-burn. Just the referred pain from this can be miserable and none of these things shows up on a blood test, but a lot of people with fibromyalgia do have GI problems and yes diet can help. Look up leaky gut, too. Hope this helps.
