I suffer from IBS and i've done so for over ten years! Some days are good but when you have bad days you really know about it.
I go to the toilet and my motions come out liek an express train, that makes my bum sore as hell becouse i've done four motions in one morning.
My stomach swells with gas adn now it feels like it's been sanded with really course sandpaper, i take the torpedos to numb the pain and that helps a lot.
I have really bad bowel  spasms and it nocks me sick and i feel like i've been out on a nigth on the town, i just wanted to know if anyone else felt the same way as me?
Dam,  i feel like crap and when i eat it's like i've had nothign to eat, i eat some food adn then it coems righ back out.
I have tabelts to calm the pain spasms etc, but i dont like to rely on tablets all the time.
I just wanted a moan and a chat with other people that are going what i'm going through, other people in your familiy care but there not going through what your going through are they?

Hi Darren,
I somehow over-looked your post, sorry.
I too get tired and feel wiped out after an attack. I think it must be the stress your body goes through. I like to keep a heating pad on hand and I like to drink tea when I'm having pain with D. It really helps me keep calm and makes for better recovery.
I hope you're feeling better...

hi Darren. At least your family understands. Mine tries to, but has so many of their own illness to deal with that I usually have to go at this alone. I have panic and anxiety with my attacks as well and it sucks. What drugs are you using. I have been using levid .375 which helps a lot but dooesn't totally wipe it out. Any suggestions? You are definitely not alone. We all need to make more use of our chat room. Sleep well.
Always grateful for the blessings I do have!
