IBS sufferers: I used to be doubled over in pain [over 30 years] until I had most of my triggers relieved from Advanced Allergy Therapeutic treatments. Please check it out, it's amazing. I've probably saved the money I spent on the treatments in not having to buy so much Imodium! http://www.allergytx.com/

I'm fighting off D right now.. I woke up with it this morning and it's still going. Normally it stops after 7 am, but I guess I'm not lucky today. At least I got a good night's sleep.

I haven't had as many problems with IBS lately-until-the other day. Full Blown!!! Sore tummy, diarrhea and a lot of pain in my abdomin. Really made me feel lousy. Couldn't get past it until quite some time had passed. Messed up my day!

I have several small gallstones, but they don't pay any attention to them, even when I get the sharp pains in my right side that will put me on the floor. I just need to find a natural way to get them to quit bothering me at times.

They keep testing my gallbladder too, even though I'm diagnosed with IBS. They just want to make sure I don't have any gallstones.

@Velmatulip- Oh wow, it's things like that that make you hate hospitals.It's sad you have to tell them you'll end up dying before they even consider keeping you. Every time i went to the ER with severe abdominal pain, they flat out told me "well we can tell you what it's not but we can't tell you what it is". Thanks, after paying thousands of dollars because of pain, you can't tell me what it is. I went to my gastro, he had all of my records from when I had a colonoscopy and and EDG plus all my visits to the Hospital and that's when he told me it was IBS. Not my gallbladder that they kept testing over and over and over again!

The er wanted to send me home during an extreme ulcerative colitis flare. I told them I would die of dehydration before Monday. They then said "well, we could keep you here". I would t come to the er if I thought I'd be ok the next 3 days...they were the ones who told me to go to the er. They kept me, pumped me full of fluids, meds & gave me a colonoscopy, which is when I was diagnosed.

When I get a full blown IBS attack it's horrible. I'm curled up in bed, screaming in pain until the medication kicks in. Then I'm just in severe pain. It can last from a couple hours to a couple days. it feels like someone is taking a pair of knitting needles and twirling them in my intestines. I've gone to the ER, but they say there's nothing they can really do. So I just lie in bed, take my Bentyl and Librax and hope they kick in quickly. I also have a bad case of D when I get like that. It's horrible... I don't wish it on anyone.

I went through a lot of pain, spasms, and tests before I was diagnosed with IBS. I have sharp pains in my abdomen, mostly on my right side and in the upper part of the colon that rests in the right rib cage. I've had them so bad it put me in the fetal position until I could get a hold of my medication to help ease it. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does, I normally end up in and out of the bathroom most of the day and it comes out of no where! Also my stomach is very tender all the time and any kind of pressure upsets my stomach to where it's painful and I have to lay there until it subsides.

My stomach was hurting a lot before I went to see a gastro because I was having trouble eating and he prescribed me a pro-biotic to get rid of some of the bacteria in the intestines that was pressing on my stomach and causing me to be nauseated constantly and for my stomach to physically hurt. After I took the medicine I felt much, much better.

Hope this helps and hope the symptoms get better to tolerate :/

They had something on the news the other night about food sensitivities and pain (not just stomach and intestinal, either). They were talking more about joint pains caused by certain foods and a new test that can find what is causing them. I would think that if it finds sensitivities that would cause joint pain and other pains it would probably find the sensitivities that cause our IBS problems. I don't have any money for this test, but it is an idea and I would like to try it if I did.

In the comments there is an email of someone who does these testings and maybe she could tell anyone interested if there is someone in their area that does the testing.

I'm not too worried about the red meat, it smells rotten to me now anyway. I have been told that shellfish can cause the same problems, but it hasn't so far. We eat a LOT of seafood since we live on the coast and it is just so abundant and fresh. It will be a sad, sad day if/when that happens.

I believe they can see if it's diverticulitis through a cat scan. That's how they found my mother in law's. Be careful with nuts and seeds and if you have the same types of symptoms, you'll definitely want to get it checked out. The fear of tests is much worse than what could happen if things are left untreated, trust me.

Velmatulip- I have read about that with meat and to counter act, it was said to soak it in cherry or pomegranate juice to neautralize the acids. It is funny that you mention diverticulities as someone else asked if I had that. I didn't have this problem until my second pregnancy. The only symptom I have though in regards to diverticulitis is the pain. Unless something more starts to happen I am not going to worry about it for now anyway. I do not get fevers, chills, or nausea. I will just have to forgo my beloved popcorn.

Fancyqtr- I think the kernal husks are the problemfor me. Also, is happends more often during my time of the month after my second pregnacy. I started getting it right towards the end of the pregnancy. Someone else I know had the same thing during hers and for 2 months after giving birth, but mine never went away.

I can understand how the radiation would effect that. I have not had to go through that yet. I have had two cervical surgeries. It is good the Immodium works!

Fortunately for me, I never got too into popcorn. I always liked it, just like other things more (like Cheetos). I also have problems with popcorn and my teeth. I never realized it would be a problem for IBS.

The radiation therapy really will take it out of you if it is going around your intestines. I had uterine and ovarian cancer so the radiation was always hitting my intestines and the end, so that has caused me a lot of problems. My new Oncologist was going to prescribe me more of the Lomotil, but I told him I didn't need it and just use the Immodium when I need it now.

I had that problem when I had to give up red meat. I LOOOOOOVED and craved all forms of beef and pork. They caused so much joint pain that I could barely walk for 2 days after (it's something to do with the acid in red meat that causes me issues). Now the smell of it cooking grosses me out completely.

Man, popcorn is definitely something I love as well, so I definitely feel the pain of eliminating foods like that from your diet. Have you been checked for diverticulitis?

Before my Remicade infusions were in full effect was when I needed the lomotil the most. I only need it now if I have hidden dairy (eating out with me is not a fun experience haha).

Velmatulip - Unfortunately, it is defintaly a food that I just adore, popcorn. It has been the food I thought I could never live without. I guess I will just have to suck it up. I will be crying without it and crying with it if I eat it.

Fancyqtr - Wow, that was a lot of immodium, good thing you do not have to take as much now, and being by the bathroom is always a definate plus. I am glad mine has always been at home.

I had to take the lomotil when I was on radiation therapy and for a couple years after. That was quite helpful. (I was having to take 10-12 of the regular anti-diarrhea pills before then). Now I just take the generic immodium, but everything goes too far the other way then. For a while they said to take one every morning. Now if I have problems I will take one before I go out or just when I am having a big problem.

My doctor put me on lomotil for when I get the big D and it really seems to help. I'm so glad you've found some of your triggers...of course staying away from trigger foods can be tricky when they're hidden, or it's a food you adore.

I hope you get feeling better soon. I have been doing fairly well except getting D a couple times after nothing for a while. Unfortunately, when it hits it is sudden and unexpected. Fortunately, I have been at home the last few times.

I have found that there are specific food triggers for me like popcorn. The only remedy is to get rid of the stuff causing the irritation. I take Philips Milk of Magnesia, a rather large dose, and that really does the trick. Only problem is that I have to endure the pain until the poop is all out, but at least I know there will be light at the end of the tunnel. Usually I only have to endure a full day with it, but this time I had to take it Friday night and Saturday night to get relief. I pretty much stayed laying on my side in bed the whole weekend. I am still somewhat sore in my stomach from all those spasms.

I get such sharp pains in my lower stomach that is is debilitating! I have literally laid on the floor in the kitchen for an hour and crawled out because the pains were so sharp! I have just gotten over an entire weekend with it. Just awful! I sure do sympathize with all of you!

An allergist once told me that you are probably allergic (or sensitive) to many things, but seldom notice it until you have a reaction. The reaction is typically from layers of allergens as opposed to just one thing. For instance, if your body has an issue with onions and everything else you eat that day doesn't affect you, you may not notice a reaction. However, if you eat onions and basil and your body has an issue with both items, you notice some type of reaction. She actually used this analogy with dust mites, cat dander and juniper, but it applies universally. Of course, you can have a reaction to just one thing, or a combination of things. And you're right Fancy, we are all COMPLETELY different. I wish one diet worked for all.

I think that shows how it is hard to follow a certain diet like they have in books. What causes problems for one person doesn't for another, but the books are usually written on what works for the author of the book. Basil is hard on you, but they say it is very good for digestion. So it ends up that you try to figure out what is causing yours and don't go by what works for others without actually trying to find if it will work for you. Last week I was having a lot of problems and I think it was the toast I was eating, but it might have been from chili I had (mainly the fat because it was 85% lean and not drained). Either one, however, is something I can usually eat without a problem. The problem could also have been caused by stress because I had to go to the oncologist (a new one, too) and I ALWAYS get stressed when that time comes.

Mine has no gas or bloating, but I do have traveling sharp pain and it isn't related to going to the restroom. I don't eat fatty meats due to joint issues I have, so the only bad fat I get is from fried foods and sometimes that triggers it (most of the time not, though) and other times I believe it is from chicken (I don't eat it very often). I have noticed the same thing about not eating until I'm full vs eating until I'm satisfied.

a sharp pain, no. gas, bloating (up to an added inch!) around middle, and stomach cramps. had 2 bouts of this , on Monday, then Tuesday. worst thing is I teach and cannot leave the room to "relieve" myself, so cramping and gas have to be contained. finally, I did a mental run-down of the ingredients I used and discovered - BASIL! that was the only item both days had in common. made a dish using everything the same except basil - no problem! sometimes, it's just one small (1 tsp.!) thing that sets me off. fatty meats (salami, pot roast, ground beef) cause the same problems. another thing I've noticed - and please let me know if this does the same to you - is if I eat until I'm very full, that will start the symptoms up again. If I stop before that, everything's ok. so while no sharp pain, stomach cramps and growling tummy can be just as bad!

My original GI dr was like yours. He wasn't helping my ulcerative colitis and it got pretty severe before I changed doctors...to the point where I was hospitalized because I could literally eat nothing.

Once I switched doctors and a year later FINALLY went into remission, I started having more abdominal pain every time I ate & they did every test known to man thinking it was my gallbladder, which thankfully is fine. She finally said it could be part of the IBS and said that there are several medicines we can try to calm the intestinal tract before eating. Digex NF is just one of the MANY out there. My friend who is in remission for Chron's takes Belladonna to help hers. I do believe it keeping track of how you feel with food, but when it seems everything throws you into a spin, it's very difficult to pinpoint what is causing the problem.

I'm so glad you have a doctor that is listening to you and cares. That truly makes all the difference in the world!

When I went to the GI doctor he said there wasn't anything that would make a difference and I would just have to figure out what I could or couldn't eat that sets it off. Of course, that pretty well means I can't eat anything since it seems to be a different thing that will set it off each time and it is always something I have had any problem with. So it doesn't seem that the GI doctors here are any help. My new Oncologist is getting involved now because I have the pain on my right side that has been there a while and has not shown to be the cancer back. He is also more interested in helping get rid of the IBS than anyone else has been.

My GI doctor gave me Digex NF to calm down my intestines. I take it 30 minutes before meals. I have found that I only need it when I eat foods with any type of fat (chicken and shellfish...I don't eat red meat or dairy). Good luck & as always talk to your doctor about what's going on.

Those are the symptoms I had that I first went to my doctor with. When he diagnosed me with IBS, he gave me a prescription for something that I dissolved under my tongue for when those symptoms occurred. I'm sorry I don't remember what it was called since this was several years ago. It really was a god send while I got my diet under control and identified my triggers. It wasn't simply a pain reliever ... it actually addressed the muscle spasms that caused the pain.

The more you step out of your comfort zone, the larger it gets.

BNM, have you been tested for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth? Have any of you? I ask because I have the bacteria overgrowth and it primarily consists of constant pain in the gut, being gassy on either end, stomach distention, etc. If you haven't been tested, it might be worth insisting you get tested. It is generally a breath test and aside from being long, it is painless.

Sometimes I don't track my food. I feel why track it if I am going to lose it. That is another reason why I don't lose weight.
After all this happens I am usually hungry again and that is when I want cookies or cake. For some reason they don't bother me. The cake has to be a very small piece though.
Go figure.

Donna, that is what I run into. That is why tracking what I eat doesn't usually help, because it will be something that I have always been able to eat (like the potatoes) that will set me off. There are a few things that I know I can't eat (and I need to quit trying the broccoli unless it is broccoli slaw, which seems not as bad), but most things I can't tell.

It seems like no matter what we do something acts up.
I can have milk some days and other days I can't!
Yesterday I ate cereal with milk and I ended up having a bad day!!

Take Gas X at a higher dose than it says. I also will take ibuprofen or Tylenol or sometimes I will even risk a few baby aspirin (aspirin burns my stomach so I don't do that often).

Of course, that causes things to go the other way.

That must be so scary.
Is there anything you can do when it happens?

When I get gas I will either get really severe pains in my stomach or I will end up with chest and arm pains like heart attack symptoms. The pains in my arms will cause me to start crying they get so bad at times.

I get pains most of the time as I am always gassy and I burp a lot.

The pain is worse when I have a bout of D,

I don't get the pain almost constantly, but when the IBS hits I will usually get a sharp pain. It is worse with gas than diarrhea, but it will hit with both.

Lately when I try to get more water like I am supposed to, I end up with a stomach ache, though.

I was recently diagnosed with IBS. Is it normal to get sharp pains in your stomach with it? I am also gassy and burping a lot and having diarrhea sometimes. And my stomach hurts almost constantly.
