I'm doing my best to not vomit all over the keyboard right now.  I spent 6 hours at the ER last night with the most unbelieveable abdominal pain and diahrrea.  The ER doc said it was likely a case of gastroenteritis.  I'm way worse today.  The pain is aweful and I'm really nauseated.  It feels like my stomach, intestines and bowels are being rubbed together with sandpaper.  
Have any of you had a diagnosis of viral or bacterial gastroenteritis?  If I still have this on monday I have to go and get tested to see if it's viral or bacterial.  I'm thinking, if I feel this bad or worse tomorrow, I'm not waiting until Monday.  I'll go to an urgent care clinic!
Okay, I need to lay down.  Hope you all have a good weekend,

Ginny,  I too had a bad case of the gastrointeritis about 2 weeks ago which in turn makes your IBS worse.  I spent days in the hospital on IV's to keep the nausia and pain in check.  I thought that my intestines were going to explode they had swelled up so bad.  The symptoms took about 5 days to pass to where I am just back to being sick daily with my IBS=C.  Hope that you get feeling better soon.... nono
