Headaches

Headaches

Hi I just wondered if anyone else gets bad headaches with IBS especially before your period (if you are a women!) I went to the doctor about it as it is more regular now & she felt it was to do with stress although I don't feel stressed! I used to take paracetamol but she advised me to take ibroprofen so have done that & it is better taking that. When I get a bad headache I feel like I can't concentrate on anything & sometimes just want to sleep as I also get really tired too.

Miralax takes a few days to work. Once you find the right amount to take for you it's great. I take half a dose every day.

Is there a bearable way to mix Cholestyramine powder?

Is there a bearable way to mix Cholestyramine powder?

I have been taking cholestyramine powder for about 6 months and if you take it you know it is not pleasant. It does not dissolve in liquid and if not mixed up vigorously you are swallowing lumps of orange powder. If there is anyone out there who takes it and has found a halfway bearable way of taking it I would greatly appreciate any advice. It helps so well for me but I want to puke everytime I drink it. What sucks is just about everything bothers me and I… read more

IBS Questions

Since April 2019 I have had a weird pressure like pain under my left rib cage. Through various tests the only thing my GI doctor can tell is I have IBS. He put me on dicyclomine for about a month now. It has relieved some of my symptoms such as lower abdominal cramps and the feeling of having to use the restroom but didn't have to. But I feel like this medicine has given me new symptoms such a abdominal pains but higher now. Also, I can just hear my food digesting it's so loud. Has anyone else had… read more
