Help, i am new to this site and so pleased i managed to find , i live in Spain and my doctor diagnosied me with IBS two years ago before i moved out to Spain and i did suffer a few violent attacks during my move with all the stress etc.
I started with chronic pain in my abdomen and to be homest it was virtually all over but very intense in my lower abdomen and side of abdomen, i couldnt put any pressure on it at all , so couldnt sleep on my stomach and infact early hours of monday morning i had to get up as i was in so much intense pain and was keeping my boyfriend who had to be at work at 6am ( Bless Him) but even the slight pressure of his hand thinking he was helping my rubbing my tummy ...once agin bless him .....gave me the most intense pain !
As i am sure you can appreciate living in Spain treatments and help is hard to come by...i spoke to the doctor in medical centre and she put me on SPASMOCTYL (OTILONIO BROMURO) for the spasms but i really do not know what else do other than mint tea and prebiotic drinks to help, i seriously thought i had a burst appendix the pain was so intense.
Sorry to go on but can anyone give me any advice or recommendations please....now getting desperate !!!
