I'm sorry you are having so many problems. What you're describing could be gastritis or gallbladder disease. The ultrasound could miss cholesterol stones that are in early formation. IBS would not be a possible primary diagnosis. May I suggest you see a Gastroenterologist for a definitive diagnosis. You need more than just an ultrasound.
Yes, it can happen if you changed your diet, stopped alcohol and smoking if you do any of these. IBS symptoms either constipation or diarrhea usually produce lower GI symptoms. The Gastroenterologist will evaluate both upper and lower GI problems.
Pancreatitis would involve vomiting, grey skin color and severe pain. Your symptoms are NOT Pancreatitis
Are you feeling better and did you schedule an appointment with a Gastroenterologist? Please provide a rating, hopefully 5 stars. Thank you.
