Re: in 2 hours...

Yep. Some people have had it go away, for exaple this woman I was talking to she had it for 20 years and when I was talking to her it had been 10 years since her last "episode" also my grandmother has had hers for 15 years up until a couple months ago she had ibs but her gastro. found out she had pancrientitas (hmmmmmm spelling?) So who Knows? The bigst thing to do is STOP THINKING ABOUT IT!!!!!!! think about doing laundry or something that is not stressful at all it will work. Relax and good luck at work, cheer up

Re: in 2 hours...

Hi WhoWhat,

Here's something that works for me:

I imagine a black punching bag that I have to keep away from me or my symptoms are going to come back - it usually works. I keep punching it and worrying that the bag will swing back towards me if I don't punch it in a very precise manner. The more precise your punch has to be (ie the more you imagine even the tiniest movements of the punching bag), the less you worry about other things.

Cheers, Raju.

Re: in 2 hours...

Have you tried a medication called Librax. It works as a sort of nerve pill for the stomach. It has changed my life. My flares ups were always worse when I encountered a situation where I couldn't or wouldn't want to be running to the pot.(airplane,car ride, big meeting)

Re: in 2 hours...

is it that easy... where you can just give it a try... my gastro doctor is pretty willing to let me try new things, but he wasn't so willing for long term use of that.... isn't that just another kind of benzo, which people can become depedent on if they use it long term?
