I wouldn't say I have a flare up everyday or extreme pain, but I definitely do have abdominal discomfort at least 6/7 days of the week. I'm new to this diagnosis and am just trying to figure out what is common/normal for this.
Any information/testimonies would be great
Every day, all day. I can't eat if I need to go out.
I get pain in lower abdomen, lower back ,shoulders and top of arms. In discomfort most of the time. Being bloated makes me feel sick and have stomach cramps.
Every day I have an attack. The pain varies. My cats calm me. Whisker’s follows me closely when attacks occur.
40 years of this IBS nonsense and I still don't have a tried and true solution when I feel an episode coming on. I figured it would get better when I retired.....now I don't ever want to go anywhere for fear of having an IBS attack. I know the average person would think I was nuts but those of you who suffer through this "syndrome" are very well aware of what I'm writing about.
My gastro dr has just started having me drink Miralax everyday. He's hoping this will calm things down. Without it, I 'm lucky to go to the bathroom once a week. Only been doing it for a week and it definitely has me going almost everyday...….but I still have cramping here and there.
Sorry for the long rant...…..good luck to those suffering....I feel (literally) your pain.
