I have been having strange discomfortating feelings in my stomach for the past 10 days give or take. To be specific, its not, until now, a few days ago the discomfort was randomly all over my stomach area but now it has localised to the right hand quadrant but is moving around there not fixed, I've been to the my local GP (Doctors) and we had a chat and he came to the conclusion without a doubt it is IBS. This may be true because I've been dealing with anxiety and depression for the past two years and I've recently came off Fluoxetine in a two week period and the doctors recommendation was to go back on it to decrease the anxiety and stress. Although I'm still not at ease, I have this fear that my appendix will go bust or something, even just typing it or thinking it makes me chern I just want opinions from multiple sources. I'm also of thinking of getting my stomach ultra-sounded.
Few more details- I am warm but my temperature is normal between 35-36,5 degrees celsius.
In the past six months I've woken up early in the morning with a warm sensation in my stomach and have relieved myself by pooping, this has happened 5 times, twice over the last 2 weeks
The skin is sensitive all over my right hand side including my upper body
I feel nauseous (anxiety?)
It is bearable but I cannot sleep due to it
I've had pains above the top right of my belly button and on my right hip bone
My lower right quadrant of my back is sore/discomforting
Thanks in advance
Pain slightly above belly button on the right hand side. Details belo?

Sorry to hear about your situation. I had a very similar problem. The pain was so severe I would cry. I finally went to the hospital and come to find out it was my gall bladder. Thank God I didn't have to get it removed. I took medicine for it for awhile. All is good now. I'm just putting it out there but maybe you'd like to get it checked out also. I hope you feel better. I know all too well how bad the pain can be.
Hi ArgonianMoose & welcome to Drugs.com!
It is a good idea to get a diagnostic done with something like an X-ray, ultrasound or CT scan or even an MRI. That way, hopefully, you should have more definitive results to curb your uncertainty. You may have to undergo more than 1 type of imaging test or might have to visit a specialist.
I hope it gets resolved soon for you. Good luck. All the best.
