New to IBS, please help.

About once a month I am up all night with diarrhea, horrible stomach cramps, sweating, dizziness and am nauseated, I feel like I am dying. Sometimes after meals, 15 minutes later, or when I am stressed, I am either puking or I have diarrhea. In the past my BM's have always been a once a week thing, bloody and mucusy. Here lately, I am cramping and nauseated daily and have diarrhea twice a week or more. I've always blamed it on my nerves or my excessive excedrin useage. My husband thinks diarrhea is fun and normal, apparently he's never had cramping like this! Any ideas?

Re: New to IBS, please help.

Hi Mel! I too am new to the board. I am sorry to hear you are not well. I have had IBSD for MANY years, even before they knew what to call it. Have you had all the standard tests to be sure its not something else? There are many causes for IBS, and even more medications. Have you tried any meds? You could try calcium tablets. They have helped many with this problem including me. Have you talked to your doctor? Thats of course the first thing you should do. I can only state that Digest Advantage & calcium has made a great difference in the frequency of my attacks. Everything is trial and error with IBS. Hope to hear you are getting better! GOOD LUCK! catloverlou
