I Have IBS-D Does Anyone Take Immodium Sometimes To Help During A Special Occasion ?
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

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

Never Normal Bowel Movements
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Hi, I Am So Fed Up Of Having To Rush To Toilet With Diarrhoea, & Not Always Getting There In Time.
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

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
