Hi! I have IBS and it sucks. I am currently taking Zelnorm for it. Seems to help quite a bit. But I still get the cramping/fullness. Anywho, I need some ideas right now. I am experiencing one of my "attacks" and it is 10:00pm. Would LOVE to go to bed soon. BUT, my lower abdomin is hurting. I have tried liquid suppositories and they got my colon to rumble and cause a crumbly BM. I can't stand up straight, lay down with my gut feeling like I got a foot in my gut. Anyone know how to deal with this?? The pain seems to come and go. Sometimes really intense, other not so bad. I've been drinkin water, but if I drink too much, I'll find myself vomitting soon.
I have 2 episodes that have kept me up all night. My last BAD one, I was vomitting bile alot. I went to an immediate care center and had an X-Ray done. They found some stool, but I felt it wasn't enough to cause what I had going on. These attacks like to start late in the evening before I go to bed. Some only last for a while, others want to drag one thru part of the night. Doesn't seem to be any particular trigger either. Some foods can cause one time, next time I eat the same foods, I am fine. So, there is no pattern.
Nothing I do seems to lessen the effects. I've lying down sticking my butt in the air. I got rumblies doing that tonight, but nothing more. I have tried enema's and liquid suppositories, the kinda work and can make my gut hurt even worse. I've tried hot baths and heating pads. Seems like when thing works one time, it doesn't the next.
Thanks for the help in advance!
