| | IBS Newbie With Questions
I have a preliminary dx of IBS-D after Upper GI/small bowel , Colonoscopy and all lab and stool analysis. My Question concerns the attacks I have. For a few days I'll feel quite good and then WHAM I'll have quite the attack. Starts with lower abdominal cramps with somewhat normal stools then leads to upper and lower cramps with looser and looser stools. Eventually just passing what looks like mucous strands. Along the way I'll get some significant nausea and queasiness. This whole process seems to last from 24 to 36 hours and then subsides. Seems to happen every few days. My diet follows fairlyclosely to most of the conservative approachs I've read about concerning IBS. Any of you with IBS-D have similar experiences to this and is there any way that you've had success aborting (or at least coping with) the attack. Any info would be helpful.
