Question
I have left iliac fossa pains with bloating and loose-ish pale stools, with general lethargy. I've had a pelvic ultrasound which showed nothing and had a diagnosis of ibs which I'm not convinced by. I'd appreciate any suggestions. I'm 31 and female.

Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below....

Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below.... Detailed Answer: Hi, If you are feeling lethargic and breathless, they could be related to severe dehydration. Therefore, I'd suggest to go to ER as you might need intravenous treatment and to run other tests such as: - complete blood profile - electrolytes level apart the tests mentioned earlier. All the best! Dr.Klerida
