Lately I've been having some problems with my IBS.  I've been having to go the the bathroom a lot with loose stool and so much pain in my stomach while I'm going.  After it's all said and done my stomach is so sore.  Does anyone else get this?  I'm so tired of being afraid of going out and such.  Is there anything that anyone takes to help for the pain?  It's getting to the point where I just don't even wanna eat anymore.  I've been on a few meds and for me it just makes things worse.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.  TIA

I would suggest a heating pad for the soreness. Are you on any fiber regimine? I have IBS and UC both of which cause me extreme D and I know that if it wasn't for my fiber, things would be a whole lot worse. Are you noticing this with certain foods or anything you eat? A food diary might help pinpoint whats causing you the most problems.

You could see a dr. about getting some antispasmodics. They can help calm your intestines down so you don't cramp up or get so much diarrhea. I know after my gall bladder attacks my abdominal muscles were always sore and tired from having clenched up so much while I was having an attack. Your muscles are probably sore too from tightening up when your intestines are running off. The antispasmodics should help that. If it's really bad, and/or the antispasmodics don't work, you might ask for a muscle relaxant, but you have to stay home in order to take one; you can't drive or work when you're on one because it spaces you out.
