Our expert says:
I suggest that you consult your doctor for an examination and blood tests, as there are other possible causes, other than IBS, that will have to be excluded. IBS is very difficult to treat. Ask your doctor for a referral to a gastroenterologist. For the pain in the upper right quadrant, your doctor will have to do a upper abdominal ultrasound. If the pain is really bad, inform your doctor as soon as possible, as it might be necessary to do a laparoscopy to look inside the stomach to find possible causes for your pain and discomfort.
