im pretty sure i have IBS. the thing is it comes and goes. it will happen twice a year, maybe 3 times if i am unlucky. when it starts it can last for up to 8 weeks. thats 8 weeks up hours of uncontrollable pain, diareaha, and blood in my stool. also nausea. its been happening since 2006. i used to drink alot, which gave me an ucler, then soon after that is when i started getting the pain/blood lower down. when it first starts, i know my insides are starting to flare up, my stool gets very small, like a cheeto'z. then it will get mucusy, then the blood starts, these steps usually take any where from 2-4 days, then its full out. mostly bloody diareaha. i've learned how and what to eat so i dont get such bad pains. atleast once during the day i will get intense pains in my lower abdomen, for up to 3-4 hours. some times i get bloated and gasy, but not so much. i had a scope done last summer (2011) and the doctor said i am perfectly fine, mind you, at the time everything inside me was working 100%. i've also had more blood tests than i can count on my fingers, and every time its the same, nothing wrong. a couple flare ups ago, i believe it was a danon danactive yoghurt drink that made the "IBS" flare up. but for the most part i dont know what will make it flare up, i eat pretty much everything, the only thing that has ever bothered my stomach is pizza, if i eat to much, im sure those of you who have the same problem know what i mean. that being said, i might eat pizza 4 times in a week, with no consequence, cept for unwanted bathroom break. i also get nausea, usually in the morning tho, when i am waking up.
can anybody relate? i have been to doctors and they dont know what is wrong! please help!
ps. i just signed up today :)
