Been having the typical IBS problems today as well as some new symptoms which have been recurring for about the past 2 months or so - needle like pain below my rib cage which occasionally shoots across my torso. It's got me worried about what's going on in there. Also, I feel like I must have put on about 25 pounds but the scale says the same weight I've been for years.

What's with this sharp shooting stabbing needle pain?

At least I have my endoscopy and colonoscopy Friday so I won't have to wait long to find out something. I haven't been expecting anything to be too horribly wrong in there but now with these new pains, I don't know.......

Good Night,

HI Barefut,
I am so sorry you are having so much trouble. Hopefully your dr will have some answers for you after your test! Hang in there...only a few more days.

Sorry your GI system isn't behaving. I will be thinking of you on Friday. That will be good to have that done.
Take Care!

Barefut ,

Just an idea, but maybe you are passing a gallbladder stone or kidney stone?

Thanks guys,


Had my gallbladder out a couple of years ago and have had stones too so I know it's not those things. Thanks for your suggestions though :)
