Hi lagace... Welcome :)
I can relate to your symptoms as I have gone through them just like that. The cramping would sometimes get really bad for me that I am also doubling over and would sometimes get nausea and vomiting. Also get really antsy when the "wave" would hit because you don't know if you can get in some kind of position that would ease the pain a bit. I agree with Lil about
asking for the antispasmodic. I take them and feel that they can work quickly (I usually will chew it for a faster effect). Heating pads as well like Lil said help me tremendously. I hope you keep posting as we all have found just having somewhere to go where people can relate helps.
I also have anxiety disorder and the IBS can play off it and vice versa. Its pretty much a vicious cycle.
