Is this a ''normal''symptom of IBS?

I've had IBS off and on for many years. Haven't had an episode for two years until two weeks ago. I have the constipation type IBS. I normally get cramps, but this time they're just constant. They cover my entire abdomen, mostly dull, but sometimes get stronger. Haven't had any relief from Citrocel, and I can't tolerate muscle relaxants because I just get more constipated. Help!

Re: Is this a ''normal''symptom of IBS?

Hi Diane,
I use Psyllium daily and for some reason the past several months I also have had dull aching in the lower abdomen sort like cramps but not. Not easy to desribe. I have found a homeopathic remedy that helps--it's Magnesis Phos. 6X potency taken like it says on the bottle.

I wish you the best---Harry
