i'm new here, so i haven't had much time to peruse the board. apologies if my concern is redundant. i was recently diagnosed with IBS. lately i've been having the most atrocious pain upon flatulation. it's worse than the pain experienced with natural child birth. has anyone else had this experience?

yogurt makes me get diarrhea....i tried drinking a tea someone told me to make at the last forum i was at. they said to smash up leaves from poison ivy. it was a short term relief, but the pain is back now.

Absolutely.  Gas pain is perhaps second in intesity only to childbirth pain!  Especially trapped gas that will not move. 
I too have very, very painful gas that is only temporarily relieved by passing it.  For me, it appears to be a combination of chronic C coupled with an organic tendency toward gassiness.  My doc explained that when my colon is blocked with stool that hasn't moved, it traps the gas in pockets.  If I'm lucky, the gas will be forceful enough to produce a movement but that is usually accompanied by a great deal of pain.
This is a very common symptom of IBS.
 
I have never heard of drinking the broth of poison ivy leaves.  That sounds just wrong.

I just learned a little about the biochemistry of poison ivy today.  It is bizarre.  If your skin is exposed to it, the best thing to do is to apply a baking soda paste (which has a much higher pH and essentially neutralizes the catechols) and soap.

Okay, that was a random thought.  But somehow the thought of ingesting the plant does, indeed, give me the willies.

Good grief, I would think that might kill you. If the plant oils give you a rash what the heck would they do to your stomach and intestines. I don't think that is a very good idea. You got away with it once but try Gas-x, Maalox, Mylanta and just about anything else next time.
