Hi all, I'm really struggling at the moment with a "flare up", but this has been going on since early December, can flare ups last that long????. I have IBS D and right now I'm so scared and at my wits end...... I have had right sided lower pain in the abdomen, nausea and bloating, gas and loose stools. I just feel like rubbish right now. Went to see doctor who has referred me to a gastroenterologist but that is gonna be weeks away. In the mean time I am taking mevberine, stemitil, painkillers and lazaprozal. Any I put would be so welcome, I feel so alone at the moment, I also think I'm suffering from anxiety, all my rational thinking seems to have gone out of the window at the moment. Sorry for the long rant, just need some help with it all. My doctor is about as useful as a chocolate teapot.
