Evening Everyone, I am a 40 yr old male and have just been diagnosed with IBS. For the past week I have been having awful abdominal pains and constipation, in fact I have had next to no sleep for a week because it's at it's worse late evening early hours of the morning. My doctor started me off on a course of Mebeverine & Fybogel and I really want to know how long these are likely to take to work (if at all, Buscopan didn't? And if there is anything I can do to try and ease the pain. It's embarrassing I am almost at the point of crying writing this because up until recently I had no real issues and this has just knocked me for 6.
I can't do anything please of the pain and I am just completely exhausted.
