IBS-D: what is your tell tale sign an attack is coming?

IBS-D: what is your tell tale sign an attack is coming?

Aside from the obvious cramping, do you experience "signs" that you're about to have a bad attack?

I've always been able to tell if a really bad flare up is on the horizon. I start to feel nauseated. I've not actually vomited with the bad attacks (yet..) but they leave me super nauseous and absolutely wiped. Anyone else?

Does anybody with IBS just have only Gurgling sounds and no diarrea or constipation?

Does anybody with IBS just have only Gurgling sounds and no diarrea or constipation?

My digestion is working just fine--no issues. I have this crazy gurgling/rumbling sounds from my intestines. They are very loud and occur mostly at night when lying on my back. Lying on my side helps. Is this IBS even though I have no BM issues such as diarrhea or constipation? Any remedies for these sounds? Thank you.

Is it safe to get a flu shot if you have ibs? Will it cause a flare up or symptoms?

Is it safe to get a flu shot if you have ibs? Will it cause a flare up or symptoms?

I usually get a flu shot but now that I was diagnosed with ibs I am concerned if it is safe and if it will cause the ibs symptoms to worsen & flare up.
The flu shots are now available at the doctors office and clinics

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.
