hiya be

first thing i would do is take a couple of anti inflamatories like ibuprofen, after a meal. But the pain i used to describe to the docs was like a belt all the way round, i felt like you too, have you noticed if food triggers the pain??? you could possibly start a pain, bm, and food diary. then if you find a pattern with a certain type of food etc... stay away from it and see if that helps. Suggest that to your doc and see if he agrees. Sometimes when id get really bad i'd go on the floor, on to my knees, curl up and stretch my arms out, that sometimes works, especially if it is trapped gas.

Hope these may help, if not sorry, just keep going on at your doc.

good luck

I am not familiar with Chron's at all, but would like you to know you are not alone. There are a lot of great people on this site with a lot of great advice. Have you tried chiropractic? It has changed my life. I feel so much better. I know it sounds nuts, but the whole body is connected. It really does help. Good luck. Try not to stress, it will only make your symptoms work. Mabe try some meditation or yoga. It will help you relax and will move gas bubbles alone. Sleep well and soon!!!
Always grateful for the blessings I do have!

hi becellea, i also have ibs-c. i get really bad excruciating pain also. worsenow had a good suggestion. eat things n keep a dairy. i have found out yogurt like activia is good. chicken is good. fresh veggies also. stay away from caffeine, spicy foods, greasy foods, chocolate, alcohol all of these can trigger ibs. i know we are human so its impossible well at least for me to stay away from all that i described.moderation is how i look at it. i drink mainly water. i know for me stress plays a big factor. i agree with you when i have my period its like a double whammy. there are times i think i am going crazy because some days the pain seems to be unbearable. i take it one day at a time or 1 hour at a time depends on the pain. also you might want to try heating pad for pain. sometimes it seems to help me other times it aggravates my tummy. seems to be no reason or ryhme. it will take time to get used to it. i have had it for a little more than 2 years and still trying to adjust. good luck to you!  hugs...Lora

hiya be, how are you feeling now? i do understand and relate to how you are feeling about coping ith the kids, i have 4 very boisterous boys. My husband is busy a lot with work but does help as much as he can. But during the day it is very hard, even now after i am better. The period thing is always a killer i used to faint during every period when i was younger, must have been my way of coping with the extreme pain of the bowels and ibs. My periods are now a wee bit less painful, not any lighter i may add but better. I would suggest getting your doc to refer you to a dietician, it has turned me around, i was always bothered with ibs-c since birth, i do know how it feels, and how angry and upset you get, i was also prescribed anti-depressants as they are a mild pain killer in small doses, but i also looked at it that it relaxes my mind so it must relax the bowel and it did. good luck and take care xxx
