Hi everyone, I've recently been in hospital admitted with abdominal pain and it was caused by my ibs and my colon being severley blocked. I thought I managed my IBS well and know what I can eat, but obviously something has set it off. I have severe abdominal pain and wind which is causing agony and cant seem to control it or settle it, ive had peppermint tablets and mints buscapan. I was also told by the doctor in hospital that buscapan can also constipate you - has anyone heard of that? I always suffer with wind and gas does anyone recommend anything as it can be embarrasing? If anyone could recommend anything to help control my IBS I would be grateful as now I am having to have time off work which is not good and need to get a hold of this condition.
