So obviously as some may know i had almost 2 months of awful IBS-D,then got over it but Iv'e had another flare of recently due to a bad burger! I took some bimuno a prebiotic and i took my probiotics and i thought i seemed a lot better..but in fact i was just not passing any bowel movements! I didn't pass a bowel movement for almost 2 days then on a night out in a club i got epic stomach pains and ended up going to the bathroom 5 or more times, and it wasn't exactly diarrhoea, but more like non stop relatively normal bowel movements, i literally couldn't stop going, honestly i don't know how all that was in me!! I was in pain right up until the 5th o 6th time i went, and then left with boy friend, and thank god i felt better as i had feared getting in the taxi in case i had a I've gotta go now' kind of moment!
This has sort of happened before, but t wasn't as painful, but it was a few weeks ago in a flight, i swear i stayed in the bathroom for 30 minutes or more because i couldn't stop going! And at this time i also took bimunoa prebiotic and my usual probiotics...so i wonder if it is bad to take these 2 together?
I was told by customer service at bimuno that i shouldnt need to take both a prebiotic and a probiotic together! But didnt mention adverse side effects!
So since Friday night I have felt fine so i have kinda watched what i ate but not totally, as, well, i felt fine so i figured i didn't need t live on rice! And It was kinda big F you to IBS as ive really had enough! So AGAIN i haven't passed a bowel movement for over 2 days, and i am slowly being able to go again,but it is painful - i have awful stomach pains and then i have to try and go! If Friday nights experience is anything to go by, i am clearly not done yet!
But i am crossing my fingers!
Now i dont know what to take, probiotics or prebiotics? I only have my probiotics left, but i put in a big order for the prebiotic ones!
Has anyone had an experience like this?
