Hi I'm new here, I've suffered for over 15 years with IBS, since I was about 10 years old. I'm a married SAHM of 2 beautiful kids ages, 3 and 1. IBD, Chrons, Ulcerative Colitis, IBS all run in my family so I guess I was doomed from the begining, lol. I even suspect my 3 yr old may be having some symptoms, but his pedi. says it's too early to test.
Anyhow, I woke up yesterday morning and just did not feel right all day, then last night it just hit me, and still today it has not gotten any better. I feel terrible and still am back and forth to the bathroom. I think I've had flare ups that have lasted for a few days but I feel especially weak and tired this time. I'm actaully wondering if its viral, but my kids are fine so far, and I'm not really nauseous. I'm just not sure why it's dragging out, I hate feeling like this. So how long does your typical IBS flare up last?
