Current medical status: Dr has suggested IBS in the past when I have complained of debilitating pains that move from my right side under my ribs the move up my back or down into what feels like my fallopian tubes. This happens sporatically, and lasts for only 5 minutes. It is not associated with constipation or diarhea. I thought it may be linked to having my gallbladder removed in 2000 (this is a result of scar tissue from a car accident-not an unhealthy diet).
Current medical treatment: None. Because the pain is unpredictable and only lasting such a short time, my dr doesn't suggest any of the current IBS medications for me. I'm concerned the gas in my floating up out of my poop could be something more serious than IBS. And that IBS is the answer that drs turn to when they can't find any other answer to what is happening in the gut???
If âbubbles in the stoolâ are your only symptom, there is nothing to worry about because âbubbles in the stoolâ are not a symptom of any disorder.
