Re: Upper Stomach Spasms with IBS

Imodium is a last resort for me, because it plugs you up for 2-3 days and that's a problem, too. I get the high cramps followed by explosive D, too. Everyone is different, but the answer for me is Metamucil every day, No dairy foods, no chocolate, no iceberg lettuce (Romaine is ok), No deep-fried or extremely fatty foods, but some fat is ok like in peanut butter, limited soda pop, and a prescription Robinul.
