  • Hi Mary. Thanks for getting in touch. We've just emailed you back directly. Best regards.

  • I've had Post infectious IBS since the beginning of 2014. It was awful at first with 9months of vomiting and diarrhea, plus pain in my upper abdomen that kept me on the couch, not able or wanting to do anything. My husband became my caregiver. Finally, we got the vomiting and diarrhea to stop and then in 2015 I was given nortriptylin to stop the nerves from my abdomen, sending pain signals to my brain. I've been on it ever since. But I still wake up every morning with a sick feeling in my upper abdomen. After I get going and get busy, it goes away most of the time. But at times I feel like crud all day with this. I try not to think about it by keeping busy. Anybody else have this type of continuing pain? I go back to the University of Michigan hospital to give my gastroenterologist an update.

  • oh, I didn't know. Yes, I'm in the US.

  • I and diagnosed with slow transit constipation so not sure if this counts as IBS. I had surgery last year to remove my sigmoid colon due to looping causing bowel obstruction. I now just take laxido daily and lead a normal life working full time and doing regular exercise.

  • We would recommend talking to your GP for a diagnosis to see whether you have IBS. Hope this helps.

  • I am under the care of a colorectal surgeon. I have STC but wasn't sure if this fits into the IBS bracket that was all.

  • We are the national charity that supports people living with IBS. Your GP or Gastroenterologist would be able to provide you with a diagnosis to see whether you have IBS.

  • Hi, I am 72 years old, active and living a full retirement life. However I have suffered with IBS all my adult life. Diarrhoea almost daily and to travel even to and from work was like a military exercise but long distance flights were and still are my biggest nightmare. I’d be happy to tell my story.
