Hello there to everyone,
I am new to this board.
I have been dealing with an excessively bad diarrhea phase of my IBS for the last week. I currently take Buscopan 10 mg for the spasms. I am very sensitive to all dairy products. I have had IBS for about two yrs. now and this episode is by far the worst I have ever experienced. I don't see my specialist again until February.
My question is, when should hospital treatment be sought? My problem has been going on since Christmas day and just seems to be getting worse. I have been rushing to the toilet between 4-12 times a day. I have taken Imodium to try to stop the diarrhea and it has not worked. I experience horrendous cramping pains before I go.
I am not sure whether or not this is something that I should seek hospital treatment for or to just keep dealing with it as I have been.
I just don't know what to do anymore. I am at my wit's end.
