It's come about over the last few months where my fingers are swollen and the joints sore mainly on my right hand. Also it seems to be affecting my shoulder and neck. For many years I've had lower back issues and sciatica.
You are not alone. Have had the same rhings

My old GP diagnosed me 10 years ago with IBS but i never knew i should have seen a specialist until now. I'm just wondering how many more out there haven't seen a specialist

I have IBS-d to the extreme. Some times for several days at a time! I had my yearly exam last Friday and she put me on Bentyl and Metamucil once a day. Today in our Fargo forum there is a story about a woman my age that has it as extremely bad like i do.

It definitely helps me. I just have a little, regular household step stool
I know personally I retain a lot of fluid during my flare ups. But I've gained and I really don't eat much when I do. I've gain up to 20lbs being sick and all I can do is sleep through it.
