    Severe cramping, etc. IBS?

    Iíve had altering constipation and diarrhea for years, more constipation than diarrhea. Iíve also had abdominal pain almost constantly for at least a year. A few days ago, I started having intense cramping, diarrhea, mucus, gas, sharp pain in my lower left quadrant, nausea, and occasional vomiting. I talked to my doctor yesterday and she recommended that I go to the emergency room. I went this morning and they gave me fluids, potassium, toradol, and zofran through IV, then discharged me, told me to follow up with my doctor, and told me to stick with a bland diet. Iím still having horrible cramps and a little diarrhea, but I think Iím empty. I have a lot of gas, some bloating, and my intestines are making a lot of noise. The cramps are so bad Iíve spent most of the past few days curled up in a ball in bed. Pressure helps, but only a bit. For a little history, Iíve had bouts of severe constipation for years. Within the past year, itís been fluctuating. I had C-diff this past summer, and after recovering, the cramps never totally abated. I had episodes of diarrhea and constipation after that. Now Iím at my wits end. Iím not sure how much longer I can stand this cramping. Could this be IBS? I may not get in to see my doctor for a couple weeks unless she has a cancellation. Should I go back to the hospital/urgent care?
