What kind of IBS?
I see on this post that people are asking "what kind of IBS do you have"? Or I will see someone say "I have IBS D" What does that mean? And who tells you this? What is the difference?

Re: What kind of IBS?

IBS D is IBS with mostly diarrhea. IBS C is IBS with constipation. Some people have one, some people have both. Most often tho, they have just the one. Years ago, I had a good mixture of both, now I have IBS C. And, it's killing me right now. No relief anywhere.

Your most welcome Nicole! It can get confusing, sometimes I feel like a doctor when discussing the things that are wrong with me.

Re: What kind of IBS?

RLS is Restless Leg Syndrome. At night, or like me, anydamntimeitwants, I get the creepy crawly feeling like something crawling right under my skin, and if your trying to get comfy in bed, your legs might jerk, or like get the pin ***** like feelings everywhere. It can be really bad at times and make you want to scream or cry. That alone will make you go insane. I've been thinking for years that I may be certifiable. hmmmmmmmmmm....

Gina, Fibromyalgia, TMJ, RLS, IBS-C,
If I kept going on and on, the list would never end. :wave:
