I have suffered with ibs-d for nearly 15 years. I’m 34 mum of two and it’s ruining my life! I suffer with anxiety also and not sure what is causing what!! I can’t enjoy anything or plan for anything. Most days I wake up full of wind (excessive amounts) cramping, feel a constant need to go. On bad days it’s brutal.. I have a normal bm, then 20 minutes later the fun begins!! I literally can’t get off the toilet. I have learned that I completely relax my body I can usually clear it.. it’s like waves of cramps/ contractions followed by loose stools and this usually goes on for about 20-30 minutes. I get the shakes, light headed and weak through out.
This happened this morning.. I had taken a Buscopan and then followed up with immodium. Does this happen to anyone else? Am I right in thinking this would be an ibs attack?
Have a full day ahead of me and all I want to do is go back to the bed 🙈 excuse my pity party.: any suggestions would be great xx
