Gastrazyme/Acupuncture?...anyone use this for IBSc?
I have had numerous intestinal and stomach ailments for awhile now...diverticulitis, adhesion pain from surgery, IBS-c, and just an unstable abdomen...
I have been taking pain medicine since my surgery for adhesion pain that happens everyday along with ibs and then add the monthly cycle to it and I am a mess....
So today i went to my 1st acupuncture appt. to try to relieve some of this pain and try to ween off the ultram.
after just one session(could be in my head) my intestines and stomach felt more relaxed. I went in feeling like i was knotted up and went out feeling relaxed in there.
She also suggested I try acidopholus as well as gastrazyme. Biotics research makes this one and it is made up of mostly vitamins, (A, U).
it is now almost 8 hours since that appt and the relaxed feeling is still here. I did take one ultram an hour ago for pinching, but i really do feel a difference after just one session. I am still uncomfortable(have been all week) but better than i was last night and this morning(not being able to move too much in the bathroom = C...)
has anyone ever tried acupuncture for ibs?
i am very interested in continuing this and hopefully getting a handle on this if not even cured...
is this possible?
