Is this IBS?? I will be seeing my doctor next week. I am afraid she will order a colonoscopy though. I have very bad cramping before a bowel movement sometimes. It is like my gut is twisting and turning (lower stomach). Like stabbing pains too. It was so bad yesterday, I was on the floor. I have a bit of a phobia when it comes to doctors and tests. Last year the doctor did suspect IBS. I talked to a naturopath and I cut out dairy. I cannot eat dairy at all. If I do, I get gas, bloating, nausea and sometimes diarrhea (what fun). I noticed that oranges don't really agree with me either and cause some pain. I have been reading posts on this site for sometime and I suspect that it is IBS, not just a dairy intolerance. My doctor did prescribe Dicetel before and it did not help. Any advice would be appreciated.
