Re: Metamucil and Cramping
Do you take any type of pain medication? I have a very much the same thing going on with me, but I take Methadone for chronic pain. I take Probiotics because I had C. diff a couple years ago, and I started on the Metamucil to help regulate me a little. I have IBS, and even with the opiate painkillers, I was having diarrhea that's why I went to the Metamucil.
The same thing happens to me about every week to 10 days. Usually, it's soft bowel movements, but then wham, the big one!! I still haven't figured out why, but this did not occur before I started with the Metamucil and before I had C. diff. I also seem to have a lot of flatulence since I've been on Metamucil. I won't trade it though, I've been much better than I was before.
