Yesterday i had a terrible ibs episode. It started like normal, little bit of a stomach cramp and needed the toilet, so I went as soon as I could. I'd only been out of the bathroom a couple of minutes when the cramps came back and so did the need to use the toilet, that's normal too for me when it flares up. But then it got worse. The pain was terrible in my lower abdomen, I felt like I was in labour, the pains got more intense and I would have a movement, later it felt like my whole belly was in spasm (sorry tmi) but the pain didn't then go away. I'd leave the bathroom thinking I'd done and within minutes I was back again until there really couldn't be anything left. Even then I still had pain in my belly for another hour. Having to go to the toilet a few times in a short time is normal for me but this episode and pain was the worst (and sadly not the first time), I was in tears and shaking, I got to a point where I was actually scared of how bad it felt because it really do feel like labour again.
Does anyone have any tips to help with pain this bad or to stop it happening like that.
