I’ve had pain and discomfort in my lower abdomen on and off for over 20 years?

I’ve had pain and discomfort in my lower abdomen on and off for over 20 years after straining on the toilet and was diagnosed with IBS. Recently the discomfort has come back and won’t go. Yesterday I had a CT scan and was told there was nothing visible, and that my bloods were all fine but that I’m quite dehydrated. I’m going to ask for a 2nd opinion as I know there’s something amiss…. and my feeling is I may have either and abdominal tear or maybe a Spigelian hernia (I have had 2 bouts of extreme pain and vomiting in the past 10 years). That said in the meantime, is there anything I can buy over the counter to ease the pain and discomfort?… Maybe Laxido or Fybogel?? Many thanks.

My opinion you need to do a colon endoscopy to identify any obstruction
This is best way to get answers
Good Luck

Have you ever suffered bloody stool ?
do you ever knew if you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity?
anyway a colonoscopy is the best way to detect any hidden problems

Are you still constipated and strain regularly while bowel evacuation?
Is the pain always present or is after eating any specific foods?
Please get a Colonoscopy done and upload the report.
