Anyone feel really wacked out and spacey in the head after a bad bout of IBS-D? I feel a little unreal right's weird. Sort of heavy in the head.

Subsequently, I'm getting an ultrasound done on my gall bladder on Tuesday to see if it's the culprit. Wish me luck (or just knowledge)!

Shadowfax I get that too. After a bad episode I have to lie down on the bathroom floor for a minute because I don't trust myself to walk and .  Then I have to go to my bed because I feel so weak and woozy.
I'd be sure you were getting enough water too. Sometimes that calms my stomach a bit and seems to sort of tell my body that it's over now and I can relax.
Sorry you feel badly, hope you can relax and take it easy for a bit :)
oh, and Good Luck!

Yes, be sure and drink plenty of water. Your electrolytes can get out of balance and you may be dehyrdated. That can cause that feeling.

Yeah, dehydration is the likely culprit.  When you do have those bad days, you should try drinking a concoction of Gatorade and water in a ratio of 1:1.  It will help keep you hydrated and electrolyted (just made that word up) without a major glucose overdose.
