HI
I have just been diagnoised with IBS, I have had alot of food allergies,and I have ciliac,and Ic. So my diet already is very limited.

But this Ibs has been a rude of wakening. I have never experienced such pain in my life. from diareaha to low back pain,to right side

pain to constipation. I have read and re-read letters from Ibs people. My heart breaks and I totally understand. Two different doctors have told me it's Ibs,

I thought I was dying. They just put me on dexilant,I don't know if it helps yet. Does anyone know about this drug? I am afraid to eat at all,and then


I feel weak. I hope there will be and end to all of this soon.

Welcome Auntbetty,
 
How were you food allergies diagnosed and the celiac? How long ago?
 
Were either of the doctors gi's that diagnosed IBS?
 
Have you had a colonoscopy?
 
dexilant is a heartburn medication and not sure why they put you on that unless for some reason they thought they needed to reduce stomach acid, whch might be although I am not sure related to the celiac.
 
There are measures a person can take to try to alleviate IBS symptoms.

hyoscyamine has been around for quite a while now and is an antispasmatic. It has been shown to help some people.

Hyoscyamine

Did they diagnose celiac with blood work? The gold standard to diagnose it is with a biopsy.
