I have started adding flaxseed oil capsules to my diet and about 3 days into it.. I noticed i was waking up in the middle of the night and having strong cramps with lots of gas with a loose mucus stool.. Also in the morning i was having the same problems. Im not sure if it is the flaxoil i added to my diet or what it might be.. But my bowl symptoms have definately changed since i started this product..
Please any advice would be great..
Thanks...

Sounds like a side effect to me. How much are you taking daily? I'd reduce or eliminate the supplement for awhile and see if there is improvement. I had the same problem when I started experimenting with probiotics. Had to try a couple different ones before I got it right.

Thanks for the comments, it seems to be getting somewhat better. .i Have had real bad cramps and a fever with sore throat with it also.. Now it seems more like the flu.. Hopefully things will get better.. That might have been what it was the whole time..
Keeping it light on foods and plenty of water..

I had IBS since 1983, and went through a litany of treatments, medications and physicians. Starting with Herb Benson, specialist in the Boston's Deaconess pain clinic, and later famous for the "Relaxation Response," try a variety of meds, none of which helped. I went on to some well recommended Internal Medicine doctors, who with medicine and adding grains (much like sandy cattle feed), again posted no real improvement. All tried their best, but found no real relief for me.

My first success was with acupuncture, which would last for about 4-6 weeks, but required constant management.

SUCCESS AT LAST: After one of my wife's colleagues gave her a food that remedied her needing to get monthly cortisone shots in her spine for arthritis, from a grain derived from a seed which contains the highest and safest source of Omega 3s (anti-inflammatory) of any other source in the world. She advised I try it for my IBS. This food I speak of has normalized my bowel function and eliminated pain and irregularity. It has been since March (09'). I would be happy to talk with you about my experiences, if you wish to contact me at bob.mulhern@comcast.net. Best Regards, Bob
