Dear all, I'm still bloating with severely painful pangs. This is only releaved by passing gas. I can't sleep much at night and it is very difficult to teach. The doctor asked me to get the over-the-counter Phanzyme, antigas meds. Also, I don't get frequent BM's as when I had a flare, but when I do (2-3 times) the quantity is enormous. Then pangs of pain are like when I used to have a stomach infection. I've been taking Phanzyme for 4 days and the symptoms are only marginally better. I've been having the symptoms for over 2 weeks. I've been using a heating pad for the pain. I don't have much, if any mucous. I may have a ripped rectum and so sometimes when I wipe, I have blood on the paper.
Do you have any advice?
