Does anyone else feel like they have been beaten up after an IBS attack?
Does buscopan help with the stomach pains that linger after the initial
episode? I get the feeling that the discomfort I feel is from bruising
while the inflamation goes down. it hurts to press into my stomach.
Its only in recent days that I have suspected IBS.
I had 4 previous mini IBS episodes (i think) in the past 10 weeks which lasted on average
2 - 3 days, where at first I thought I had pulled
a muscle and then I thought it was a gluten intolerance because it happened
after pasta twice.
I dont seem to be getting any D or any real C (although when i dont eat for a day or 2
it does seem to slow things down a bit..) I feel bloaty and its as if a good session of
passing wind would sort me out.
these episodes were sore, and it was hard to sit up in bed without pain
but nothing like this last one.
I have been GF and hardly any dairy (2 cups of tea with goats or lactose free milk) and
thought I had cracked it, and in my healthy spree i made a sort of veg stew
using onions, garlic, harricott beans and some other bits.
the next day it came on slowly but the pain escalated so much I felt like I
was going to die and ended up in hospital telling them that I need something
to take the pain away.
the nurse guy examined me and said that it sounds like IBS (short version)
and gave me buscopan to take, 2x 10mg. when I got home and took them, after
90 minutes i finally got some relief the pain volume turned right down and
I was able to sleep.
the morning was sore again and the pain started to come on so I took 2 more.
since then I am not in the pain crisis state i was in but my stomach is still
real sore. I can find a position where i sit that is comfortable but moving
around makes me feel like I am bruised.
I am following the FODMAP list and made a soup from stock, chicken breat, carrott
it could be stress, it could be the 3 months of antibiotics i was on last year,
it could be my penchant for garage snacks of cookies, crisps and chocolate
any advice or thoughts would be appreciated
