Irritable bowel syndrome

Posted by nancykeenan @nancykeenan, Feb 2 2:46pm

Does anyone get a pain or discomfort in the lower pelvis bottom right every day between 2 am and 6 am

@nancykeenan You are having discomfort due to IBS between the hours of 2 am and 6 am and you are looking to connect with members like you.

You will notice that I moved your question to the Digestive Health group.

Typically IBS has to due to with digestive health unless there is a particular reason you put it in Infectious Disease?

Have you considered appendicitis?

@nancykeenan It would be helpful if you could keep a daily log (for a week) of what you have eaten, any beverages consumed, other physical activities such as working out… and take that with you when you see your physician.. or GI Doc..

Thanks for moving it for me. I guess I didn’t realize where I was actually putting it.

Due to COVID in Ontario unless you are dying you don’t get to see anyone but I have talked on the phone. I keep a diary and can’t find any connection with food or drink. I will continue to do that. Thanks

Thx but I have had my appendix and gallbladder out and had a complete hysterectomy. Once I have a bowel movement it goes away and never comes back until the next day…

Hello @nancykeenan

I empathize with your digestive tract problems. I've had three surgeries of the upper digestive tract and understand all of the uncomfortable problems that can occur. The Fodmap eating plan has had helped many of us with symptoms of IBS. Here is a link to some information from Mayo Clinic about the Fodmap eating plan, https://www.mayoclinic.org/medical-professionals/digestive-diseases/news/if-its-not-celiac-disease-what-is-it/mac-20430109. Just click on the link to get more information.

While I'm not a medical professional and cannot diagnose other people, the fact that you said that your pain is in the lower abdomen reminds me of my own symptoms with diverticulosis and diverticulitis. Has any doctor ever done a CT scan and/or colonoscopy to check for those disorders?

I hope that you find some help with your discomfort. Will you post again with updates as you look for answers?

I will check that link. I had a CAT scan 2 months ago and the scan came back saying I had mesentric panniculitis! My GI doctor disagrees and so does my family doctor. They both think I have IBS. But I don’t really have any symptoms for these only the pain! If the pain was intermittent but every morning like clock work? Like this morning, was awaken at 5 am with slight pain. Rubbed along my hysterectomy scar, felt like I was ready for bowel movement, went to bathroom, had a good one but discomfort didn’t go away like it always does right after. Laid back in bed, couldn’t go to sleep, got up had a coffee, went again at 7:30 pain left, guess I just wasn’t finished from the first tine lol! There was a bit of diverticular noticed on my colonoscopy 2 years ago. All blood work and body parts were fine. Had the dye too. He told me I was quite healthy for my age. Could it be adhesions? Have you ever heard of problems of the cecum?….that is where waste is stored before goingbtonrectum and out, i think, and pain is right in that spot. Just very frustrated….hope someone can help with this mystery,,,, thanks
