I first posted about this 2 months ago. Today I went to GP and tried to explain it to her but she was useless. She just said that lots of people with IBS have alternating constipation and diarrhoea . I wanted to explain that as I was having to go to the loo lots of times but having to strain I didn`t think it was typical diarrhoea (or constipation) so it was difficult to know how I should be treating it, but she wasn`t interested
I came away with a prescription for Movicol to see if making things even softer helps - and a prescription for Loperamide Syrup to see if a tiny dose of that will reduce the frequency. I only got these after I specifically asked for them
I would just like someone to explain why we are having so much trouble passing a motion properly when they are soft!
