I am fairly new to HW. I usually hang out over at fibromyalgia. But I have a question about
IBS. I have had IBS for years now and have left it untreated. But for a long time now, especially last seveal months, when I have to go its like lightning strikes. I have no warning. I stop dead in my tracks and try to gain control and when that don't work I run. And usualy have accident all the way to bathroom. Very embarrising in public and at home. I hide it from hubby and others. I have accidents in my sleep. I always have loose stools. I have tried benifiber and metemucil (sp?) and other otc stuff but no relief. Also, bad gas with no relief for otc meds. Its very embarrassing. At home and public. I do have GI appointment monday but was just wondering why I have no control over bowels? It happens at least 6 out of 7 days. And some days several times a day. What gets me is there is no warning. And I just can't make it to bathroom. DO they have meds to help with that? Is there a name for that kind of problem? Or is it just IBS? I really need help with this and have went to long dealing with it on my own. I was just to embarrassed
