Abdominal pain: Your symptoms appears to irritable bowel syndrome (ibs). However, before we can conclude this is the problem, you might want to discuss more in details with your physician(s) to exclude other causes. If you truly have ibs, you can try to change your diet. Recently, fodmaps (look it up) is a new diet we recommend to patients and seems to work well.
