I've got a few questions for everyone here, just to satisfy my curiosity than anything else. First, how often is your pain usually? Is it predominantly vague/annoying pain and discomfort that you experience 24/7? Or is it usually a certain amount of time after eating? And if so, does it only happen after eating certain foods, and you're 100% fine if you avoid those triggers? Last one...is the pain and discomfort consistent or does it change in location or type and severity?
SEEMS like no matter what i do i still have pain every morning.sometimes worse then others.usally in the same spot lower left side then it moves to my back.once it moves i know i will be feeling better within an hour or so most times
My pain is random, but averages once every 2 months. The pain happens a few hours after eating (usually). And lasts from 6-12 hours. The pain is incredibly painful, but can vary in intensity sometimes.
Triggers are usually food, stress or sometimes nothing obvious.... But you can read that from other posts here, have a read, there is a wide diversity of pain, duration and triggers around.
Before I did anything to my diet, my pain was constant from the moment that I woke up to the moment I fell asleep. That went on for about 2 months. Now I have pain only occassionally, if I have eaten or drank something that doesn't suit me. Usually I experience the pain the next morning, but it fades away rather fast. Now I understand better what my triggers are and I avoid them the best I can.
I have pain on and off especially if i eat something fiberous.Alot of the time i have problems, is when im heading out the door.Doesnt matter where,most of the time i cant eat when im out.Makes you feel miserable.
In the beginning my pain was constant, I would be either in heavy havey pain or so tried afterwards that I could only stay in bed. Once I found out my triggers, the symptoms and associated pain is cut down to about an hour to two hours after I eat the offending food to about a day or a day and half afterwards. It is very encouraging to see the difference so I do what I can to avoid the foods I know will trigger a IBS episode.
