User :   Hi I'm 21 years old and I have been constantly diagnosed with IBS for over 7 years. My primary symptoms were abdominal pain, constipation and inconsistent bowels. Since then I have been prescribed countless medications ranging from Buscopan to Fibre Supplements and even natural remedies such as Peppermint Oil, none have seem to relieve me from my discomfort. Some Doctors even prescribed me anxiety medications which failed miserable also. Recently over the past year my symptoms have progressed even doubled. Now I also severely suffer from shooting pain down my right leg, shooting rectal pain, pelvic pain, and what I can only describe as a painful uterus. I am constantly ridden with fatigue and endure endless sleepless nights. Also a few months ago I unusually bled during my period for a whole month. I've had several investigations and procedures with no findings ranging from ultrasounds to extensive blood tests to barium x-rays. I am due to undergo a colonoscopy in just under 6 weeks. To be honest I feel like the investigations are taking place in the wrong places but I'm told these are the procedures for my kind of symptoms. Please can you shine some light on this troubling case. Thank you
