IBS D not every day

Does anyone else have this? I have always gone for days before a bowel movement so this was the norm for me. Anyway since IBS reared its ugly head many years ago now, my symptoms are thus, I again can go a few days without going, but when I do it starts off normal, then sometime later I will need to go again, again normal then probably sometime later still I will need to go yet again and by this time it has changed to diarrhoea. I have read about Silicol gel and wondered if this could be taken spasmodically as I wouldn't need it every day.

I take Sillicol every day (Just one dose) and it really helps. Take it with a good probiotic.

Highly recommend silicolgel....pricey but worth it. Take in the morning only and see how you get on. Up dose accordingly. I get mine on Amazon.

I'm the same, I can go days without going to the loo and then suddenly I will have to go no warning at all. I'm sick of this it's ruining my life. Sorry for the moan it's just getting me down .

Yes thanks everyone I will try silicolgel. I have somehow managed to cover my tracks for years. To cover embarresment, if I am going on a long trip I have resorted to Always Discreet underwear. At least if the worse were to happen, I am covered. Along with this knowledge of toilets on the way is useful.

Had you increased your fibre intake before this started? It sounds like you may be taking too much and you need to reduce the amount you are taking.

DTH123 Might have done, it is so long ago that it wasn't a problem, I forget what went on exactly. I am drawn into this eat plenty of fruit and veg message so probably have increased that over the years, maybe to my detriment. Having said that, from time to time I cut out this and that from my diet then find it never really made any difference one way or another.
