Question they say I have Irritated Bowel

Last year I had three tests I had the colonscopy Ihad the Barium enema
I also had a test where I had to drink two huge glasses of Barium and it ran through me. they have said my Bowel is on the wrong side. and that I have
I.B.S. and that I should eat lots of fibre. I try doing all of those things
but every so often I get really bad pains in my stomache and then I ended up
in the washroom about 7 or 8 times I finally end up taking Immodium and then
I am constipated for a couple of days but the funny part is I feel much
better being constipated then having to run to the washroom. I have
Diabetics , Heart condition, High blood pressure , High Cholestrol and so
I take a lot of medicines could that be the problem some time maybe
the medicines react with the food I eat. hope someone can give me an
answer I am almost afraid to go out sometimes so I end up taking Immodium
when maybe I do not need but it does make me feel better knowing I will
not have to run to any of my friends washrooms.Hope some one can help

I am sorry you are having so much trouble.

What type of fibre are you taking?

Re: they say I have Irritated Bowel

So sorry to hear you are having so much trouble. I have had problems for the past year, I feel bloated, excessive gas no matter what I eat. I take beano right before every meal to stop the bloating but hasn't worked to good.

I have constipation, just a mirserable feeling,cramping... I haven't been back to the doctor for it, it's so embarrassing but I'm going to have to do something. I'm always in pain after eating no matter what it is. I try to watch what I eat, and I try to eat alot of fiber, but doesn't fiber make you feel bloated and cause gas?

I hope you get your problem figured out, I'm right there with ya. It's no fun!

God Bless,
