  Hi everyone,
 
 I'am in the learning process, and have a ton of questions.
 
1. With IBS do you have crampy pain or can you have constant pain that becomes stabbing when you move?
 
2. Is it normal when you have a bm the pain is not relieved?
 
3. Can IBS have a cycle?(seasons)
 
4. Can IBS go away on its own w/o meds?
 
 Thank you for any ideas or answers.

Hi NH66, Of course everyone is different with their IBS but I will reply with me personally:
 
1. With IBS do you have crampy pain or can you have constant pain that becomes stabbing when you move?
 
I get cramping although not always constant, was worse before taking fiber.
 
I do get stabbing pain on my lower left side but that is from diverticulosis and not IBS (for me).
 
2. Is it normal when you have a bm the pain is not relieved?
 
Yes, sometimes I don't feel that I fully evacuated so I will be uncomfortable for awhile.  Drinking water usually helps with this.
 
3. Can IBS have a cycle?(seasons)
 
YES
 
4. Can IBS go away on its own w/o meds?
 
Some people do not have to take meds, changing ones diet can help or eliminate the need but not for everyone.  I personally do have to take meds for mine as diet alone doesn't help me completely.

dbab,

Thanks, i just read the site. I have way to much to learn. Starting to feel like a grain of sand on a beach, when it comes to knowledge.
