I read somewhere that IBS can last up to two months at a time which is definitely the case with me this time around. I have had flareups on and off over the years but this time it's going on for months, with a few days here and there where I felt pretty normal. Most of the time however something is bothering me… It's either constipation or odd pains in my lower abdomen and sometimes my upper abdomen and even sometimes in my lower back. Then I might have a few days where I'm not constipated but the bow movements are weird… I might start out with a normal bowel movement, and then a few hours later have what almost like diarrhea and then still have the feeling that I have to go but nothing is happening. It just seems like an endless cycle that will never get back to normal. And the minute I veer from a pretty strict diet I definitely know it will act up. The only medication I take is Nexium for my Gerd. Are you prescribed something for your IBS and what are your experiences with IBS?
