Another painful flare up and couldn't get out of the bathroom when I was due to go out. Happens so often it must be a trigger. Starts with cramps and I have a few seconds to make it to the loo. Then in and out all day with D. Had many tests, colonoscopies, SIBO etc. Tried various meds, CBT, hynotherapy, meditation.
Taking loperamide helps me to leave the house, but wondering whether others find this stores up the problems for later? I find after about three and a half hours the cramps and D return with greater vengeance, almost as though the attacks are delayed rather than avoided. Difficult to make it home too if it hits whilst out.
Also, do others find they feel absolutely exhausted, sore guts and quite fragile for a day or so after a bout?
Try to move on each time and keep going, but always the question when going out, are there loos and what are they like.
Apologies for the moan.
