  • Not the same but has taken 2 bad years to realize after really bad day /night that not only milk but fruit sugars gave bad cramps after having 2 lovely pears. Was given all sorts medication plus some thinking ...all in mind/ due to stress. Hope to have better sleep tonight if am right. Looks as if I have developed an intolerance to sugars for some reason. Diagnose coeliac few years back. Hope you get correct help and not told in the mind. Sorry not any help to you. Appears Ive been agrivating bowels with sugars so no wonder medication not much help.

  • Hi

    I have the exact same thing - I've had IBS for 10 years now and understand when I'm having a flare up but this is totally different and has lasted 2 weeks now. I'm unsure whether this is a flare up or some sort of bug - it's def not a food intolerance. How are you doing now?

  • Like Anne said it could be diet related. I used to get the same excrutiating pains until I started watching which foods I was eating and when I was getting the pains. Have you tried the FODMAP diet? I found this very helpful to sort out which foods I would react to. Hope this helps

  • Google "Wai Diet". I've been on this for a month now and it's not only helped with my IBS but with my acne as well. Take care.
