Hi. I have constant ibs but luckily don't have a lot of bad attacks. However, when I do, they're horrid. Anyway, is it typical to have residual symptoms after an attack? In other words, would there still be some pain and discomfort around the area that had the most pain during the attack? The pain was in the middle of my abdomen. And now I still have discomfort 4 days later. Certainly not unbearable but more annoying. Could it be because I'm stress anxious and stressed out over the whole thing? My bowel movements have been normal to loose. Sometimes I think this whole ibs thing is enough to make me lose my mind. Anyway, if anyone could share their experiences with this, it would probably help calm me down - as right now I'm very worried. Thanks.
