Frequent abdominal cramps, bloating, diarrhoea. Pain radiating to right side, acid reflux. IBS?

Hi, Starting in September 2012, I have experienced frequent abdominal cramps and bloating with bouts of diarrhea . The pain will shift from the left to the right side of the abdomen and will be accompanied by acid reflux . My GP has said that the intestines felt inflamed, however I have taken a number of blood tests that came up negative for Celiac s and Anemia. I m still waiting to see a Gastroenterologist . Is this just irritable bowel syndrome, or something else? Any input is greatly appreciated

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.F.
As you describe you are having abdominal cramping, bloating, and diarrhoea since september 2012. As it is a chronic disease, it appears to be irritable bowel syndrome.
Other possibilities are amoebic dysentry, or bacterial infection of the gut, with out proper treatment.
Of course as you have appointment to consult gastroenterologist, you will come to know the diagnosis of the condition. You may have to go for colonoscopy besides other routine tests for confirmation .
Wishing for a quick and comlete recovery .
Best regards.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You seem to have symptoms at both ends of the gastro - intestinal tract!?
You will need Upper and Lower GI endoscopy...(oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy / colonoscopy)

The long duration suggest anxiety, gastritis and irritable bowel..,/ food allergy too?
It may not be serious, if you don't have a weight loss...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
