Flare ups that last all day

Flare ups that last all day

Does anyone else get flare ups from time to time that will last all day or even two days? I'm having a flare up and it started this morning and comes and goes especially after I eat. I've been watching what I eat for a while now. I've cut out all spicy foods, acidy foods too. I've cut back on the red meat and greasy foods. I wasn't nasuous till now. And I will get like hot flashes too. Has this happened to anyone. I'm on hyscomine for the IBS. Probably not spelled correctly.

Is it IBS?

Is it IBS?

2 years ago I had tests originally for IBD and when all of those tests were negative, the conclusion was IBS. I have struggled recently with accepting this as a diagnosis because I feel amazing most of the time but when I have a flare it can knock me off my feet and I struggle then mentally with worrying about whether or not I am feeling better. I do not take regular medication for my IBS-d, as my doctor has said if it's bad use Imodium and for the bloating peppermint tablets. Has anyone else had quite… read more
