I have IBS for years but if I had a flare yesterday it was the worse as far as Diarrhia goes. I went at least 20 times, the cramping was awful and burping a terrible taste. I started taking pepto bismol about 8 last night and went one more time but had D already this AM.I would drink water and I was in the bathroom in no time, usually 3 times in a row. Some of stool looked almost clear with dirt in it.

That is normal for me to go up to 6 times in the Am sometimes loose other times D. This was all day long. Anyone else go that often? I did have a slice of pizza that was very, very greasy.

Thanks, Pa

Do you take a probiotic? If not, take VSL#3. I get it from Costco (best price). It in the pharmacy because it has to stay refrigerated. Best stuff ever.

I took Pepto Bismol four times 15 MlS. each dose, but never shook the bottle. I was feeling so bad and the print is so small, can this do any harm? I am having a blood vessel removed from my gum on Tues. called the ENT to see if being unwell and taking Pepto would affect the surgery. He said as long as I am feeling okay it would be fine. But did not tell him I never shook the bottle. There is a stomach bug going around in our area.

We don't have a costco near us, 60 miles or more away. I will have my dil check the probiotic for me, she lives near one She shops there often,. I think this time was a stomach bug, A lot of people had it and have it. I emailed my dil and she will pick it up for me, they will be here this weekend. She takes the same thing.

Thanks for the replies.

My IBs started the same way right after gall surgery, My daughter has it also and had her gall out 3 years ago, she blames the surgery for the IBS. I have read so many posts of people blaming gall surgery for their IBS and I agree. I never heard that the chol med you are on helps with IBS. My chol total is 140 so don't take anything for it.
