Re: Cramps for days after an IBS attack

I also have pains like that. Sometimes so bad that I cannot move for 20 min. or so. Usually though they are just enough to make me miserable. They start a few hours or a day after a D episode and last for several days. Seems like a bland diet during that time helps some. Also taking simethecone right after the D episodes seems to help. The pain is like my stomach is on fire or inflamed or something, sharp and unrelenting pain. Relieved usually by lying down (I think that gives the trapped gas more space). Then when that pain dissipates i get the full torso ache from mid rib down to lower hips for a few more days.
