I get a lot of information and support from this Health unlocked site.
IBS is a symptom of Fibro we all know. For some of us we started with IBS and then other issues come along.
Personally I had IBS diagnosed years before the Fibro one.
You would think I had got used to the concerns around IBS.
Recently it has flared like a volcano.
Having endured a few weeks of ,sorry , toilet time , chronic spasms off I went to my GP
I have over the years had cameras from both ends and 'tortuous colon' was given as one answer.
Now there are blood tests to go for and yes a consultant to see.
If anyone has any suggestions? I take an antispasmodic, oil of peppermint and some stuff to avoid constipation and more for fibre. My food regime is classed as healthy eating with fruit, vegetables brown bread and not too much fat.
I exercise to stave off other issues around gut health
