hi everyone

i am so fed up at the momnet. i am haveing problems with my stomach. i am allways on the loo. i seem to go all the time. i am seeing a speaclist at mo and have had a camrea up and down which they found nothing. i get diahaoh sometimes and then others just can't stop going. i get a lot of pain most of the time and bleed from the back passage. before i had the tests my con****ant said she thought it sounded like ibs but i didn't think you bled with that. it seems to me that if they are not sure what it is then they just call it ibs. she just said that she would give me something for thr pain. so if she does that then i will still be in the same postion that i am now. i am waiting to see her again for the diagnoses for all the good it will do me. i have been like this for four months now. i ended up at a and e two months ago as bleeding was bad and didn't stop they just sent me home. it seems that they are not very bothered about helpping me and i am fed up with living like this. it is affecting my life i have to plan where i go and if there will be a toilet and take spare clothers just in case. i have had three months of off work because of it and they have told me that they will sack me if i have any more time of. i am notr really sure what esle to do. i work with children and it is hard to get to the loo in a hurry and also i don't feel like going in to work when i have really bad pains. i can't be bothered to do anything and don't want to live my life like this.
All I did was add a subject to your thread. -- Lil  tongue

Hi oneday,
Welcome to HealingWell! :-)
So sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time. Hopefully you'll get some relief soon.
What has your doc said about the bleeding? Blood is not a symptom of IBS. When they scoped you did they find hemorrhoids? Blood is usually caused by a hemmie, fissure, or IBD. It's good that you're going back to the doc... hopefully you'll get some answers.
I'm assuming the pain med your doc will give you is going to be an antispasmodic. There are several out there so if the 1st doesn't work for you, don't be afraid to ask for another option.
In addition to a pain med, you might want to talk to your doc about ways to control the D. Calcium is widely used among IBSers to help control D. The most popular is Caltrate w/ Vitamin D.
Do you take probiotics? If not, you might want to start. They will help replenish the good bacteria that is lacking in order to keep your guts under control. Digestive Advantage for IBS is a good, mild way to start. You can also get similar "good bacteria" from yogurt. Eating at least 1 a day will help regulate things. Dannon Activia is great... or any "plain" yogurt is good.
Are you taking any fiber supplement? That can also help bulk up your stool.
Of course, don't try all of the above at the same time. Talk to your doc about your options. Unfortunately, however, most of us only found out about these helpful tips on this site. None of my docs ever mentioned Digestive Advantage, probiotics or calcium.
I'm sure others will be along with more tips. Take care and keep us posted on your doc visit.

hi 7lil
thnaks for the title completely forgot that. nothing was found when i had the carmrea. i bleed even i i don't have a bowel movement. it drives me mad. i have to where a santerty towel premently. i have tryed those probiotics but they make me feel even worse. i keep a food diary for about a year but my gp or dietition couldn't find anything that made me like i am. i have tryed different diets and they have made no differnce. i have had med from gp before with no sucess. i just can't face a future like this. i don't go out that much as stomach is so bad. i have missed about three months of work as i was signed of. they have said they will sack me if i have any more time of. i am of today so not looking forward to going in tomorrow. my troulbe at the moment is i can't stop going to the loo. i don't have D just normal only i have been about six times in about three hours. i just can't accpect the ibs thing. its just because they don't have a clue what is wrong and it will save them time just to give me a pill that i know won't work and tell be to bugger off. i am not going to see hos consultant untill december. so got another month to go and most proberly hundreds more living like this. great can't wait. and if one more person tells me that it is all in my head i will scream. how can the bleeding be in my mind? i also have another chonic condition which they can't do nothing about so i don't have any faith left in the medical perfession. sorry for crap spelling i am dyslexic. i know i seem to have everthing! story of my life.
