Customer Question

I am 63 years old. I am overweight and have so many health issues. One of the biggest problems I have is acid reflux, and IBS. I also have asthma, PVC's of my heart, and just bad arthritis. I have been under my stress as I lost my husband a few years ago, and my brother a month ago. I am retired but totally exhausted as I have a disabled daughter living with me, who I have to drive all over and help her get her life in place. The last few months I have had IBS issues.. and pains in my stomach., One pain is about 3 inches left of my belly button. Its sporadic.. off and on. Today I felt it come on maybe 5 -6 times and lasts seconds.. its a knowing pain. Is this IBS? I have had a colonscopy late 2014 and endoscopy done at the same time. I had a stress test for my heart late 2014 too. Just had full bloodwork, gyn visit, bone density test, mammogram, and a abdominal xray of my stomach to look for kidney stones. just concerned.
