In Reply to: It HURTS! IBS? posted by Kristi on November 04, 2000 at 09:05:57:

: I'm so glad I found this Board and I spent hours last nite reading the post. From what I've read, it does seem my sytoms are IBS. The thing is I feel it is getting worse and worse every day!!! This started approx. 2 months ago and has now reached the point where I don't want to leave the house. Just this morning, first thing I had to go to the bathroom. I had at first a normal BM but when I felt that I should be done my body didn't seem to think so. The pain is unreal!! The cramps! And the straining!! And I'm NOT doing the straining, my body is! And it hurts to the point I just want to cry. And now I know just like the many days before I will be going again and again and lucky if I pass anything at all or just a tiny bit. But my body screams that I need to make a BM even though I really shouldn't have any more to pass! I use to be a normal "once a day" kind of person. This goes on now until I go to bed at night. Last weekend I took a laxative thinking I would "clean" out my system and be done with it. What a mistake that was!!! I had cramps so bad that they ran up my back and down my legs. I cried and almost threw up. This went on all night and the next day. I almost went to the hospital cause I hurt so bad but my husband talked me out of it. We called the doctor and FINALLY he gave me a referral to a specalist. (spell right?) With HMO Ins. it is HARD to get away from your regular doctor...they want your money and don't want to send you away. So anyway this other doctor is going to do a Colonoscopy on me this Tues. Guess I'm lucky cause from what I've read here alot of doctors take their time on doing least I'm going straight to finding out NOW before they make me do other "test" and "diet", and all the other stuff...I can at least find out right away if this is IBS or something more serious. Anyway, sorry this is so long but I'm so happy to have found other people who suffer with "bathroom" problems like me. This is just something I DO NOT discuss and I only let my husband know about it a few weeks ago. I just don't get into "potty talk". :) Now it seems that is ALL I talk about! It is so bad that I can't help but talk about it! It has made my life a living hell. I just hope that it is IBS and that I can then find a way to live with it. Again, sorry I went on and on but thanks for having this board and letting me vent and share!

Hi Kristi,
Let us know how you make out with the colonoscopy but go ahead and plan to get on a fiber supplement and Vitamins/Mineals.
God Bless---Harry
