Hi all. I have chronic Lyme, and recently I have been having some pretty intense stomach issues. I have had most of the tests to rule out anything really serious in my abdominal. My LYME doctor believes that the pain/ cramping/ discomfort etc., is from the Lyme, and my GI believes I may have IBS. I have always had good steady bowel movements, but lately I have been dealing with some uncomfortable constipation-although I have also had some loose bowels on occasion as well(that usually happens after I take a good amount of CALM magnesium powder the night before). I tried Levsin, and it helped somewhat, and I am taking peppermint oil pills as well, and have added fiber to my diet, but I still am getting cramps. My GI has given me a prescription for Librax and I took one the other night-I believe it helped calm down my spasms, but I felt kind of wired throughout the night-kind off zombie like, but with strange thoughts and visions. I am contemplating trying it again this morning, as my stomach discomfort/cramping pain is back, but I am concerned about the possible side effects of the drug. I would welcome any thoughts at all regarding this subject.
Thanks in advance,
