I have had abdominal pain on and off for 4 years.  Since January 2016 the pain has been constant, it gets worse anytime I eat or drink anything, I have lost about 30 pouns since January.  Last December I had a Colonoscopy and in February I had an endoscopy and both cam out normal, March of 2015 I had a hysterectomy because they though this pain was caused by endometriosis, found that was not the problem, had multiple cat scans, and had other tests and everything comes back normal.  I was referred to a 2nd gastroenterologist this year, he spent 5 minutes with me and diagnosed me with IBS.  He put me on an anti-spomadic and PB8 and my primary has me on medicine for nausea and has me on pain medication.  Over the last 2 weeks I have started vomiting several times which has never been an issue before.  My gastroentrologist is impossible to get into, called last week, the earliest appointment is July.  Even drinking water makes my pain worse, start everyday with ensure and not eating much of anything else.  I also have had kidney staones in my kidney for 2 years, but have been told they don’t cause pain because they are in the kidney, and constanly have ovarian cysts (did not remove ovaries during hysterectomy) but am told they only do anything about them if they were to get bigger. The pain is on the lower left side and goes into my back, but if my abdomen is touched anywhere the pain is unbearable.  I hate living in pain. I am not sure that this is IBS because of the weight loss and vomiting and no relief of pain after bowel movement but don’t know what else it could be.
