Please Help.....

I dont know if i have IBS or not could you please let me know if my symptoms sound like it??? I have had diahrrea for the past 3 weeks that will not go away no matter what i try, severe abdominal cramping, and some nausea(mostly in the morning) i might be pregnant also. This diahrrea thing is terrible. If it is IBS is there anything to stop the diahrrea??? Please Help Fast!!!!

Re: Please Help.....

It may be too soon to tell if you have IBS if it's only been three weeks. Have you changed your diet at all? And also, if you might be pregnant, your body may just be adjusting. I would definitely contact your doctor asap. As for the diarrhea, of course there is medicine like Immodium, but again, if you may be pregnant, I would call your doctor.

Personally, I think you should talk to your doctor. No one is ever diagnosed with IBS right off the bat. One is diagnosed with IBS once all other possibilities are ruled out. I think you should talk to your doctor first before concerning yourself with IBS (at least for now). Sure, your symptoms are similar to those with IBS, but there could be multitudes of other things that may be causing it as well. See your doctor and see if he can't help you pinpoint your problem.

That is GOOD advice, but you may have a virus. I would use Metamucil to slow down the diarrhea and also use Calcium. The problem is you wash alot of your good bacteria away, along with electro-lites. This can present big problems if not taken care of ---so see a Doctor!! That my vote Too.

If it's possible you could be pregnant, please rule that out before anything else. Pregnancy effects everyone differently. It could be your body reacting to pregnancy hormones and may be temporary. Don't take ANYTHING until you are sure you are not pregnant.
