Pain in Chest IBS related?

Hey first time poster here.
I'm having pain in my chest and upper back.I had it checked out a few months ago and my xrays and ct scan came back normal so I chalked it up to my IBS flaring up again.I had my gall bladder removed in February and since things have been out of whack.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has had pain in their chest just under my left arm and radiating through my ribs to the back, with IBS. I woke up with my back killing me and my stomach is cramping badly.
Pain meds aren't helping only making my stomach hurt worse.
Can anyone help me?

I've also got pain under my left ribs which radiates into the chest, into my upper back, sometimes under my right ribs, and right arm, which isn't as often and not as bad, but usually it radiates under my left arm too. I also get pains in my stomach all over, sharp pains a bit like spasms, as well as lower back pain at times, I also feel nausea at some points too with all of these symptoms. As long as you have been fully checked out I'm sure it's nothing to worry about. My doctor refuses to send me a specialist due to the fact all my blood tests came back fine so I'm still worried but it gives me reassurance someone else with IBS has had these problems. Hope all is well x

I get a similar chest pain as you and others are describing, but the gastro doctors I've had through the years told me mine was from GERD.  It's quite common for people with IBS to also have GERD.  Both involve food sensitivity issues, too.
