I have been diagnosed with an umbilical hernia. For years I have had symptoms of IBS...distension, diarrhea, abdominal pain. I have always thought that I was allergic to all food because I tried elimination diets, etc. My last CBC showed my C-reactive protein at 3.3 (I had acute abdominal pain and distention) then had CT scan that identified the hernia (small). Could all these symptoms be related? Should I get surgery?

Hi, I have pretty bad IBS that has aggravated recently. The transit of my food seems to take less time and I can hear my food gurgling into the upper colon while I m still eating. After eating I am also in a lot of pain and can track the transit of my food because I can hear every piece making it s way through the colon (I even sometimes have a little gurgly feeling in my groin as it completes its journey :) I also have a problem with pain in my genitals that has been more or less constant for around a year. Recently, I ve started to think that the two may be related. The pain can sometimes also be in the very bottom of the left buttock and can move between there and the left of my genitals. The reason I think they are related is that I have developed severe, sharp abdominal pains, which are a new development in my IBS. The pain starts in the left upper abdomen and almost shoots down in a straight line to the left lower abdomen and occasionally also into the buttock and groin, aggravating the pain I ve had in that area for a while. Is there any condition that may cause this? Incidentally, I also seem to have an overactive bladder and urinate every 15-30 minutes. I d probably say the longest I can last is an hour and a half. And even if I have urinated while at the toilet for a bowel movement, I always need to go again about five minutes after. Don t know if this is relevant :)

I have occasional dull ache in my lower abdomen on the left side. This is usually after eating spicy food or drinking coffee and is sometimes accompanied by slight mucus in stools. It is eased by taking peppermint capsules. Is this likely to be IBS? I am a female polio survivor, wheelchair dependent aged 65 weighing 9 stone with significant scoliosis. I depend on night time ventilation by IPAP.I also have acid reflux treated with omeprazole and gaviscon.
