    Hi. I'm a long time IBS sufferer and in my experience the pain of IBS can be anywhere from groin area right up to chest, right or left side. Anxiety makes it worse. Doctors often send us for further tests just to alleviate our anxiety. If you suffer from anxiety then please let the doctor know. It seems that very often IBS and anxiety go hand in hand. Relieve one and the other disappears. There are medications to help both.

    Re: Left side stomach pain

    Yes I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy and was treated for helicobacter pylori bacteria and also had my gallbladder removed and I still have IBS! and my pain is mainly upper left hand side but does move down to the groin area at times. I've had so many examinations and tests but I'm told my main problem is anxiety which aggravates IBS symptoms.
