I am tired all the time, non stop gas, bloating, pain, urinary urgency, and dietary changes. I go to doctors : Colonoscopy good/ mamagram_ good/ bladder - no problems having been looked at with a scope/ b-12 deficiency- yes- taking injection suppliments felt better but I'm still tired/ have allergic and asthmatic conditions/ the docs think I have IBS. Oh yes, and back pain! I have always had a perfectly healthy back. What do you think.. I want to know what's wrong with me. I've been a very healthy, strong, athletic person who is aging really bad an inaapropriately.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

It sounds like your doctor is taking you through a series of test to rule out certain conditions or illnesses.  

Below is a link to find out what kinds of exams and tests that assist in diagnosing ovarian cancer.

Also, I've included a link on IBS symptoms in women.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
