Hello, I've just signed up to this network on the advice of my mother-in-law! I've had IBS for 5 years now, I have a caffeine intolerance and more recently become lactose intolerant. After getting food poisoning in Thailand in April I've had a terrible flare of my IBS which had previously been very well controlled. Since April I've had bad diarrhea which then made me very fatigued and struggling to get through the day. I have also had anal fissures as a result of the diarrhea (agony!) and now severe abdominal spasm pain. I've been referred to gasto to see if they have any advice but the waiting list seems to be pretty long. So if anyone has any advice for the abdo pain and the tiredness levels I'd really appreciate it I've upped my dose of buscopan to the maximum but I don't feel it deals with all the symptoms. The diarrhea has thankfully settled, just go between constipation and loose stools quite a lot now. Would love to get my IBS back to being under control the way it was before all this!! Ali
