Irritable Bowel Syndrome


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I have had irritable bowel syndromes for the last 19 years. Sorry to be graphic, but motions are very loose every day, and usually of semi-solid form. I have noticed that painkillers do slow down the process of elimination to what is probably more normal, but wondered if anyone had found anything else effective, as over the years I have failed to find anything that works.

LOL, When I first read the title to this thread I thought it was about having IBS and using public transportation.

Anyhow, I find using Citrucel or a similar product helps loose stool. It's not just for constipation.

Also like Ernie said, finding out what foods trigger your IBS is important.

IBS and ans problems go hand in hand. The autonomic system rules GI functions. I think you will find that it's a trial and error process to find the best treatment for you. For example, if I take pain killers or benzos, my guts completely shut down. If I eat certain foods, like cherries, or take certain meds, I can guarantee having the runs.
