Angry weekly battle

Ok im really frustrated with this ibs thing! One week i could feel ok maybe good then the next week im really fatigue like lay in bed try not to wake up so tired- felt like you have just been knocked out by tyson. Then sooner or later it goes back to feeling pains worse and worse then one week of pain turns into 2 and then if im lucky i start to feel a little better and then the whole cycle again! Am i the only ibs person that goes through this??? Does anybody sort of have a battle to fight every week?? I dunno whats going on it has nothing to do with the foods im eating because i havent tried new foods for like a whole month and i have been eating these foods for the longest time- really bland. The only stress i have to deal with is this ibs- day to day cause its always in my mind and i can never have one day w/out some type of pain, but yesturday i was wiped out- so tired and this morning i knew today was gonna be like it so i didnt even want to wake up!
*^*Does anybody else deal with sort of the same thing??
Please answer- frustrated kira

Dear Kira,

IBS is like that with some people. There are some people that it never ends with, it's continuous. Are you seeing a gastro doctor or at the very least an internist? What, if any meds, are you on?

Re: weekly battle

Hello Forgiven,
I Know How You Feel. I Was Also Diagnosed With Ibs A Few Years Ago. I Have To Fight This Thing Everday. I Don't Enjoy Food Anymore. If You Could Survive Without It, Then I Would Chose To Not Eat Again. I Feel Terrible Almost All The Time. I Have A Child And It Has Been So Hard To Take Care Of Her. I Am Going Back To The Docs Soon And Am Hoping For Help. I Have Lost About 20 Pounds And Am Looking Very Skinny. Don't Give Up. You Can't Run From Yourself. I Do The Same Thing As You. I Would Never Get Out Of Bed, Because I Know What I Have To Deal With. I Feel Sorry For Myself Alot And Am Jealous Of The People Who Can Eat Whatever They Want And Feel Normal. Not Even That, They Can Eat And Feel Normal Period. I Don't Know What Its Like To Feel Normal Anymore. I Was Diagnosed When I Was In My Teens Years And Still Am Fighting This.

ALL OF THESE FOR IBS!! ya it gets so depressing every single day not wanting to eat i use to love food now i only eat it to live! any advice??

Forgiven 77:
I am new to this site, but I read your post about your condition. I just wanted to let you know that I feel your pain and frustration. I also have IBS since Dec '88. I have pain 24hours/day 7 days/week. I have seen 6 GI specialist, tried herbal remedies, had every conceivable test performed and every other conditioned ruled out, to indicate that I haver IBS. I have tried alternative treatment approaches and nothing has helped. So I live with the pain every day and have been using pain and anti-spasmodic medication off/on since Dec '88. One thing I wanted to know is if you have tried the newer medication on the market called "Zelnorm". If you havn't, talk to your Doctor about it and try to get some info on the medication from the internet.

Well bye for now and don't be shy to reply back if you wish!
