I've had IBS-C for two years now and today I experienced my first very painful intestinal spasms during a constipation episode. I even took my first dicylomine tablet today. The pain started after a very painful huge BM. It seems my intestines got VERY sluggish and the BM's very large yesterday and today, but the pain didn't start until AFTER I passed the stool. I could hardly even stand up it hurt so bad. It was a shock to me I could actually feel my lower right abdomen getting tight and rippling with the spasm. All I've ever had is painful bloating a gas pains when I had a bad day. I admit to eating all the wrong foods. Spicy Chinese with that No-No broccoli, and the al-dente veggies. I had leftover the last two days.
I won't do that again for a while. I admit I took that DEXTRIN fiber powder in water yesterday, plus whole wheat muffin and pasta I swear the Dextrin makes my intestines sluggish. It just doesn't work as well as soluble veggies and Metamucil Clear and Natural. On top of all that I gained 8 pounds over the holidays. I plan on starting my IBS diet tomorrow.
