I've had IBS for a long time, also have fibromyalgia, degenerative disk disease (so-called), plantar fasciitis, GERD, and some miscellaneous stuff. In terms of IBS until about six months ago I had only the constipation variety, but after taking probiotics for only three days my IBS went into an alternating constipation/diarrhea stage, with neither symptom being very bad. (However, at the same time my GERD kicked into high gear and I had to go on medication.)
But what is really odd is that I am extremely sensitive to pressure anywhere in the torso area, the slightest pressure triggering abdominal pain. It has gotten so I can't wear pants (hadn't worn a dress in 40 years until this happened) or even a dress that has a waist. I can't wear a bra, ever, no matter how loose. And now I can only wear 3 pair of my oldest underpants with the most stretched out elastic, and some days I can't even wear those. Does anyone else out there have this strange problem?
