For a long time my IBS has mainly caused problems with constipation to the extent that I usually take Movicol daily and sometimes need a glycerin suppository as well. During this current heatwave I have switched right over to diarrhoea mode - lots of loose motions and cramps. I haven`t taken Movicol since it started and I hoped it would calm down on its own, but this morning I have taken loperamide as it was so bad. (I don`t want to take too many loperamide in case that triggers extreme constipation!)
I seem to remember having problems during very hot weather before. I don`t know if it is actually caused by the heat or because I have been drinking a lot of water. I wondered if anyone else is experiencing this?
