My husband and I both have IBS to an extent, mine from my fibro, his from who knows what.
He went to his gastro and he said he has hemmies and gave him stuff to try, as they have REALLY been bothering my husband (pain/tingling feelings, irritation, not much bleeding) this has been going on for about 2 years!! Not bad enough for surgery, nothing seems to help him. He's even tried some weird cream from some Dr in CA that has caspian in it, yikes!! He tries soft wet clothes to wipe, witch hazel, 3 different kinds of creams from the Dr and OTC stuff, sitz bathes and changing undies a few times a day. Nothing helps. He doesn't have C or D, in fact the lucky guy has a normal BM every day like clockwork!! He just gets cramps from IBS trigger foods and sometimes gets both C and D. But mostly its the hemmies getting him. He says they feel like prickles around his anus.
Anything that may help him I'd be very interesed in hearing!! I'll try to see if the flaxseed helps.
Dh is convinced it's not the little hemmies bothering him. He thinks it's just irritation. ?? Not sure what to do for him?!
