Hi. I'm new here.
I'm 36, and have had IBS like symptoms since I'm 14. I was on everything from Tagmet, Bentyl, Pecid, etc.
I am currently on Bentyl as needed.
In 2000 (age 28) I had my first colonoscopy confirming I did indeed have IBS.
I would say that I have maybe 3-4 episodes a month now. Pretty controlled.
But last night was a BAD one.
I was in the bathroom from midnight until 6am.
My stomach was in SO MUCH pain. The pain usually lasts 3 minutes, then stops for 10 minutes, then repeats.
Today my stomach is SO sore I can't even bend over.
It feels bloated and I can feel the gas bubbles in it moving around.
It also feels like acid indigestion now.
Mind you, during the episode I took 2 imodium because
I couldn't take it anymore.
Does this happen to anyone after a bad episode (that you are so sore for a day)?
