Hi all, I don't know whether I should put this here or in GI. If you think it needs to go in GI, let me know.
My 9 year old son was dx with IBS yesterday. My problem is, I don't seem to be able to get anyone to do anything about his pain. He has been in CONSTANT pain for two months now. It gets worse at certain times (night, morning, eating, pooping, even moving sometimes). When he sees the docs during the day, he isn't as bad. They aren't up with him until 11 every night because he can't sleep. He isn't in school, maybe a half a day if at all. Bentyl hasn't worked, I got Levsin yesterday, but that hasn't done a damn thing either.
I am at my wit's end. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions that I can put to the docs? I want our lives back to normal and my son is starting to get depressed....
