Hello everyone, my name is Meghan and I have had ibs-d since my early 20's(i'm now 34) Up until recently I have always had the same type of flare up, I would eat and all of a sudden I get diarrhea and horrible stomach cramps..feels like food poisioning..it would last a day or 2 and then go away..sometimes i'd have a few a month, sometimes 1, or every few months. Now, I believe my symptoms are changing and becoming a mixture of d & c..im in almost a week long flare up where it is switching between diarreha and constipation. i'm having horrible lower back pain, gas, bloating, burping constantly and feel super tired. I feel as if a war is going on in my stomach, no matter what i eat, my stomach rumbles all day long..my jobs getting pissed, missed all week because im so uncomfortable and all i want to do is lay down..does anyone else have these symptoms?? People think im nuts! Seeing a new Gastro on Monday, hoping someone can help me!
