Re: stomach bloating and stomach cramps
Well, I am a newcomer to this board and also to ibs--I've had it, or the symptoms of it, for about 7 weeks. Which doesn't seem long, but it seems really long to me. Anyway, before yesterday, I was having almost constant cramping feeling in my gut, and I tried this herb, 'Cramp Bark', that I got at a nearby herb store that really helped take away the cramping and pain feeling. I am also taking another herbal product called Now Peppermint Gels that are enteric coated (the coating means they don't dissolve until they get into your colon) & they help also. Do you have an herb store in your area? If not you might want to try getting something like online. Anyplace that carries the Now Products can get you the enteric coated Pepperming Gels if you special order. Mostly health food stores and places like General Nutrition Center. I have decided to make a web page with helpful things and links about IBS that I have found and that have helped me. It will take me a while to put it together.
