I have a few questions which may seem a little bit silly but I hope some of you may be able to help:
1) I am currently taking Spasmonal anti- spasmodic tablets as and when I have a stomach ache. However, I am unsure if I am using them for the right pain. I usually get a stomach ache which slightly improves after passing gas (tmi- i know, sorry). Can anyone describe the type of pain they have? Is it a constant ache or does it come and go in waves?
2) What are the main symptoms you experience? and, how do you treat them?
3) Does anyone experience nausea with their IBS? I have emetophobia (fear of vomit) so I am unsure if I am experiencing anxiety relating to this or if IBS can generally cause nausea?
And finally 4) Do any of you suffer with other symptoms non-specific to IBS but feel that IBS is the main factor? For instance, quite often at least one point during the day, I will feel out of sorts, this could be mild indigestion, excess gas, headaches etc I usually recover quite quickly but it seems like there is often something wrong with me. I read somewhere that IBS can cause those other symptoms and other aches and pains etc.
Sorry for bombarding you but I would greatly appreciate any feedback.
