Can anyone help? My IBS has flared up again and I have been waking up several times a night with severe pain than can last anywhere from 10mins at time to about an hour. During the day I get the same severe bouts but less frequently and for less time. The rest of the time I have a low level of constant pain. I have had episodes like this in the past but they usually only last a couple of days, it has been seven days now. I went back to the doctor and was given buscopan (max dose) and Colpermin, it does not work, if anything it is getting worse at night. I have had antispasmodics such as this in the past, mebeverine included, and they have not worked. Any advice?
My condition is usually managed with diet, occasionally I get bad flare ups.
