My stomach hurts a lot. It gets hard and bloats up.

My stomach hurts a lot. It gets hard and bloats up. Sometimes when it is really bad I wont eat for days. I have had many test done and the docs say it ibs but I dont think so. I have no problem going to the bathroom or passing gas. It hurts when I get up and down from a chair and when I cough.

Hi,thanks for query.IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion.When all the reports are normal and still patient is having problems IBS can be stamped after proper physical examination.It has direct relation with your mental status,means when you are in good mood the problem will ease and when you are tense you will have more problems.As per the complain the diagnosis seems to be right.Try doing relaxation techniques and you will be fine.
wishing you good health.

General & Family Physician Dr. Shainaz Arif Kaware's  Response
Hello jodie;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
See if you have these symptoms:-
-nausea at time of meals or through out the day;
-pain or discomfort after or before meals
-if you get sensation of heaviness or fullness after a little meal
If you have these symptoms then you are probably having gastritis and you need to get treated with antacid like Ranitidine;Famotidine or even you may need a course of Pantoprazole or Omeprazole which will reduce the internal swelling and you will feel better.Please consult a doctor in person and discuss it and get prescribed.
