Colonoscopy: Irritable bowel symptoms typically run the spectrum from constipation to diarrhea, frequently alternating back and forth. Usually there is episodic cramping and spasm, but bleeding and weight loss are unusual. Evaluation by your primary care physician may not find any abnormalities in blood tests, x rays or a ct scan. Proceed to Gastroenterology for colonoscopy.

Yes both can: Gastroesophageal reflux disease GERD can cause severe cramps, especially if severe with lining compromise. Gastritis and Irritable bowel syndrome IBS can also cause less severe cramps. Night cramps can be more associatedvwith GERD after a full heavy meal esp with alcohol, where acid food mixture bridges thru esophageal gastric area and could cause dull chestvpain, cramps and nausea.
My colonoscopy and biopsy showed inflammation in my cecum and ileum. Can IBS cause? I have severe low R abdominal pain with diarrhea and nausea daily
No, but...: A colonoscopy would help exclude other possible diagnoses that present with similar symptoms. It also serves as a screening test for colorectal cancer. So, useful for more than one reason. If you have a significant family history of colon cancer, it is recommended you have one starting at age 45-50, and then every 5 years after that, sometimes sooner if there are precancerous growths detected.See 2 more doctor answers
IBS: If you have IBS and this is not a new issue for you, that may just be you. With a normal colonoscopy, unlikely to be anything else. Some people try a probiotic like florastor to help establish a normal gut flora again which may help with your as issue. See is your diet has anything to do with it too.
I had been diagnosed with IBS, but never had a colonoscopy. I've recently been waking up at night with painful episodes. Could it still be the IBS?
Possibly: But nocturnal symptoms are unusual in IBS and rarely awaken an individual from sleep in and of themselves. Would definitely warrant a visit to your internist or gastroenterologist to be sure you do not have something else like IBD and not IBS. IBD is much more likely to cause nocturnal symptoms that wake you up.
I have ibs. I've had 2 colonoscopies within the past 3 years and they were normal. When I wipe I see a little bit of pink blood. Should I worry?
Take some: Reassurance, if you are seeing blood it's unlikely to be related to more concerning things like colon cancer, colonic polyps (which can become cancer) or inflammatory bowel disease (like ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease). These very concerning conditions would be very unlikely to be missed by two colonoscopies within 3 years, particularly if the preparation was good.
Neg colonoscopy 9 mon ago. Diagnosed ibs. Recent bleeding from anus and positive fobt. I'm 25 what now?
See CR Surgeon: Anal bleeding in a young person with a normal colonoscopy will most likely be from either internal hemorrhoids or an anal fissure. You would most likely have pain with bowel movements with the latter. Try taking a fiber supplement for a couple weeks. If you still bleed, see a colorectal surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer

No matter what I eat or do, yes I've had a colonoscopy found nothing, said maybe ibs. I always suffer severe morning diarrhea! Why?
MORE FIBER: I'm not sure why you're having diarrhea, and it can be serious so you should get it checked out. But in the short term, a fiber supplement, such as fiber-con, metamucil, benefiber, or citrucel (or their store brand equivalents) can make a big difference. It looks like you need to take them just before bedtime, and it's ok to take a double dose.
