I take Pepto Bismol and it seems to work.
My ibs has been out of control lately but I definitely know food is a trigger especially sugar. This time of year is especially hard as everything is about food and I find myself not eating just to avoid having a issue but we know not eating can also cause gas build up and that can also get ibs going. I can’t win. I have two days where I have to drive further away than usual to visit family for Christmas and I am considering taking immodium

Yes hi I do the same take Imodium
Me too most of the day.
I never and I mean never have a normal bm. About 3 times a week, I have what I call episodes. Episodes of pain, many bowel movements and tenesmus. I literally get rid of everything I've eaten in the past few days in an episode that last anywhere from 1 hour to 5. And always in the am. Is there anybody here that does this. My gastroenterologist is trying to help but so far nothing.
Thankyou it is better but so much I cannot eat. I hope and send prayers you feel better. It sure is the pits.🥰

I’ve been like this for many years but it’s getting much worse as I’ve got older, I’m now 68 yrs. & have had many accidents during this time. I’m at my wits end as this is controlling my life. I am otherwise fit & healthy
Doctor has prescribed suppositories which I use for every bowel movement, if I didn’t use these I would get all of the symptoms of wanting to go, but unable to go, until I had to rush to the toilet with chroni diarrhoea, & would be lucky if I made it in time. Don’t know what… read more
