This answer was rated:

Hi
I have really bad stomach pains and need to got to the toilet (number 2s) alot. Also if pressure is applied to my belly I feel like being sick, most days I am sick, also I ride a motorbike and the slightish bump in the road kills my stomach. I am always feeling sweaty and hot. I have been to the doctors for blood and stool test. I have to go for a scan as blood test shower liver problems. The stool sample had a infection which I recieved 3 sets of anti-biotics for, this has not worked, made it worst. He has now given me IBS tablets which are making the pain worst rather than better and going to the toilet more. I am now having little faith in my doctor as he asked me what do I think should happen and asked for my opinion on whats wrong with me. Could someone give me advice on what is wrong? Please

Customer:

I am booked in for a ultrasound end of the month, but the pain is killing me at the min. I went back to the doctors last night and he gave me IBS tablets again, which make the problem worst rather than better which I have told him this.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

well, it cannot be said to be IBS without further testing

Dr. P. Jyoti :

a number of conditions could cause this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

diverticulitis, adhesions and intussesception are three important causes to rule out

Dr. P. Jyoti :

infections by bacteria or viruses also need to be ruled out

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ischemia of intestines, torsion of intestines also need to be ruled out

Dr. P. Jyoti :

an Ultrasound or CT of the abdomen is necessary for this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

colonoscopy may also be required for diagnosing diverticulitis and other possibilities

Dr. P. Jyoti :

i would advise:

Dr. P. Jyoti :

go to your doctor again and discuss about the following possibilities: diverticulitis, adhesion, intussusception, torsion, ischemia

Dr. P. Jyoti :

protozoal infections

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ask about the possibilities for these conditions

Dr. P. Jyoti :

of course you may not be having any of these, but an Ultrasound is a must to rule these out

Dr. P. Jyoti :

copy paste these differentials and print out and show your doctor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this will help you to come to a diagnosis

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take care

Dr. P. Jyoti :

Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.
