OK, after almost 2 months of no problems I have been hit again with the cramping, nausea now for a couple days. Thanks for all the congratulations before when I thought it was gone and not IBS at all. So much for bragging! LOL. I am convinced that this is stress related more now than ever. The last week I have been under tremendous stress due to a couple things and feel that is why this has all started again. Now most of that is resolved but I hope it doesnt take me months again to get back to normal whatever that is. Not really posting for any other reason except to mention that I think this IBS or whatever is more stress related then I thought. Pepto Bismol, heating pad here I come. There was no food reason to bring this on so what else can it be.

So sorry to hear about your recent relapse. It's always like that, isn't it? As soon as you acknowledge that you're better, BAM!, you're not anymore.
I totally agree with you that it could be mainly stress related. While I was on vacation I ate fried foods and dessert everyday. Not once did I have a problem. Back home if I do that I would be running for the toilet and doubled over in pain. Stress!! Everyday life really takes its toll.
Anyway, I hope you get back to feeling better soon. Maybe try taking some probiotics and doing relaxing exercises.
Take care.

Hey guys... i sooo think its stress related. or nerves in my case, its a vicious cycle for me. Im fine when im at home and in my "safe" environment, take me out of that and im stuffed. Before going to a restaurant or whatever i am really nervous of what "might" happen so that makes me wanna stay home.. I cant stay home for the rest of my life though. And 7lil ur so lucky u were able to go on holiday, i went away last year and on my flight from perth to singapore i had a panic attack and that nearlyyy ruined my whole 5 weeks away in europe cos i was sooo nervous for the rest of the holiday and all the other flights i had to take... funnily enough i have good memories of the trip haha Weird since i spent most of it visiting toilets around europe haha

Lat night I put a heating pad on my back and it helped the pain a great deal. I also find that when I have done a lot of lifting that I have a problem. I am still taking the Probiotics which is why this is a surprise and I think it is mainly stress related. This too will pass. usually I am constipated. this time it was diahrea but it seems to be settling down. thanks for your good wishes. Plan to have a no stress week this week.

Bella, maybe you should write a guide books to the best "johns" to visit. I envy you guys that can travel a lot. I can afford it but because of my emphysema it is really harder to travel as I must have O2 on the plane. Don't need it on the groung but I also don't like traveling alone anymore and it never used to bother me. I have done a lot of traveling so I did get my share in though so have fun, y'all while you can. I am lots older than you all also.

Canyon, why not look into tour groups so you don't have to go alone? My grandmother went on a trip to Hawaii, oh, I guess right after I was born, and she still talks about it a lot. She went with a big group. A lot of time churches will get a group of people together, especially seniors, to go somewhere. My Aunt's church always went somewhere in FL late or early in the vacation season and they had a good time. My college alma mater even arranges trips for alumni to band together on. It's a good way to make friends and if you go with people your own age, you certainly won't feel alone in needing to go to the bathroom all the time, although it may make for some long lines!

I don't like group travel. I know it sounds unreasonable but with my breathing problems I cannot be subject to the schedule of other people. I don't have the bathroom problem as I have IBD-C but it is the need for oxygen which is the problem for me. I have to pace myself and so need to plan my own schedule which can be adjusted to my daily breathing health. I live in a Senior Mobilehome park and am busy all the time with seniors but I can't expect anyone to adjust to what I need now. I took 3 trips last year, 2 with stepdaughter and one to 50th reunion back east and that was fine but the regular tour things just won't work and cruises have become too difficult. When you get into your 70's and have chronic condition you do what is comfortable now and look close to home for fun most the time. If my husband were alive it would be different but i can't ask that of other people.

I'm not trying to sell you a tour package or anything, but I would think that a tour group made up of nothing but seniors would include some other people with oxygen needs as well. And they're not exactly going to be hitting it at a hard pace with a bunch of grandparents on board. Just seems a pity that you like to travel and could but for the fact that you feel like a burden. You're obviously not up on the typical senior's outlook of entitlement! Burden? What did all of you seniors reproduce for if not to have someone to take care of you when you got old? It's time to cash in on those diaper changes and late night floor-pacing. And it doesn't even have to be your own children that you extract this debt from; there are plenty of grandparent-less young people out there that owe a debt.
