Really super painful ibs attack...help!!
I have an odd thing going on, and I wonder f anyone else has these?
2 times a year, at the same time of month, I have these horrible horrible IBS attacks. Ususally, it's triggered by going to the bathroom. ANyway, you can immediatly feel something is wrong. My abdomen felt extremely tender, and I had these sharp, very bad pains running through my abdomen when I moved. My bowls feel swollen, but they arn't. It felt like I swalloed hundereads of toothpics and tacs and they are moving through my system. Then it makes me go to the bathroom,kinda loose, and it is soooo painful, I get nausceous the pain is so bad and scary, and it even makes me cry. The pain is a 10+ (scale 1-10). Anyway, I can tell it's my muscles surrounding that area, because hot water helps and also the pain gets much better each day afterwards. I've told my doctor this, and he says it sounds like IBS. I awlays thought IBS was just a nusience, not this painful!
Maybe these are triggerd by stress. Because for 2 of them, I had one the day I graduated and another one 6 months later after my first day of a new job.
Anyway, is there anyone out there who has these, and what are they exactly? Plus right after (this is for women) my vagina inside really hurts, and my cervix is alos tender. It's really confusing, because I know everything is so crammed in down there, and your uterous and intestines and vagina are right next to eachother.
