Hello lovely Sparkers,
I have a preliminary diagnoses of spastic colon/IBS (does that mean the same thing?). I'm looking for resources and suggestions of what to do.
My main complaint is pain in my abdomen (always in the same place) which worsens with exercise. My doctor said he could feel an inflamed and swollen intestinal wall when he palpated my abdomen.
I don't tend to have "toilet" problems on a regular basis, which is what I always assumed IBS was - did I just have a wrong view?
Does anyone else in here have matching symptoms??? I would LOVE to hear what you do for it!
My doctor gave me a prescription for a smooth muscle - muscle relaxant a few weeks ago to relax my intestine there, and it REALLY worked. But also made me SO sleepy, I was afraid to drive my car and slept 12 hours a night.... so that had to go. Then he gave me a fibre supplement which doesn't seem to make sense with what I read about IBS and also about my own life - I'm vegan, so I eat beans, fruit, veggies, oatmeal, whole grains, etc... and I drink tons of water.
Any advice, support, suggestions of resources are really welcome!!!
