Hi there. I belong to the Lupus board and am not new to Healingwell but am new to IBS. I have RSD, Lupus, Acid Reflux, Thyroid Disease and now IBS.
I have been having a rough week. Last Tuesday I spent 40 minutes on the toilet, pain and cramps, diarehha and normal bm's all thrown in together. I was like that off and on all day. Since then I went 6 days without a bm so last night I took a Dulcolox (not sure of spelling) and have spent most of the day on teh toilet, same as last week. Pain, diarehha, half normal stool and just not feeling well. I really need help trying to figure out what sets off these spells. I am on alot of medication for the Lupus and pain pills for the Lupus and the RSD. I finally had to give in and take sme Pepto Bismal today but it isn't helping. I really need help.
Can anyone give me some suggestions on what to do to help with these symptoms? Please?
Thanks so much,
