You're right...it could be gas or irritable bowel syndrome. The key is progression: if the twinges become more frequent or intense, further testing including ultrasound or CT imaging and potential lab work can help diagnose. Try more fiber and water. ...Read more

Why would I have left-sided mid&upper back pain after an EGD & colonoscopy? Hurts more when eating and swallowing. Biopsies were taken.
