I was just wondering does anyone experience body aches and fatigue with IBS? Last night after I went to sleep I started having body aches and was like NO!! I can.t get sick... I did have a flare up yesterday and it when on all day and apparently through the night with the aches and then this morning too. I've been on a light diet since yesterday. Just curious if body aches is normal. I feel so sleepy and run down
I had my appointment this morning with a dietician for the FODMAP diet. He told me I am not allowed to drink squash because of the sweetners in it. The one I use has the following ingredients:
Water, Fruit Juice from Concentrate (10%) (Apple 9%, Blackcurrant 1%), Acid (Citric Acid), Acidity Regulator (Sodium Citrate), Flavourings, Colour (Anthocyanins), Preservatives (Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Metabisulphite (Sulphites)), Sweeteners (Aspartame, Sodium Saccharin)

I've suffered on and off with tachycatdia. They doctors have noticed this when I've had surgery or a procedure that requires sedation. It doesn't always present on an ecg but has done on occasions. They did tell me which one it was but brain fog means I can't remember what they said. I get it quite a lot when I experience a pain or if my body is out of sync in some way. I also get pins and needles in my hands. My hips hurt as do my… read more
What do you experience after a flare up? I typically get fluid retention from my chin to my toes. I guess this isn't a common symptom. I just have to keep chugging water until my body resets. Does anyone else experience similar or the same?

I'm in the UK, I paid for a private consultant to listen to my symptoms and diagnose. Nothing internal, just external examination and discussion. He's a very accomplished and well regarded specialist.

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.
Does the bowel screening test that they send to your home show up if you had a polyp in the rectum?
In the past I typically would have C for a bit and then have an attack of D that would last a few horrible hours with pain, chills, and occasionally nausea. But then it would mostly be over and able to continue with life until the next one. Lately the attacks are not so intense, just feel not right and not want to do anything. Almost like there is stuff in me I have to get out, but now it takes days instead of hours. I don’t feel as bad, but it is still annoying because I just… read more
