Hi Doris, I feel your pain. Im so sorry. Have you tried Imodium? Or Kaopectate? For the diarrhea. Please be careful with your diet. Also, ask your Doctor if you are able to take prilosec or zantac for the burning indigestion. I had to give up dairy and almost all vegetables before I started to feel better. GOOD LUCK— your not alone.

Haven’t read the article yet, but when have diarrhea every day I feel it’s no wonder we feel pressure and pain.. after about seven times in a row there are tiny spots of fresh blood on tissue… maybe it’s pressure but my inside area just feels…well.. very sore from overuse and burning from acid … is this the same thing?

Thanks so much for sharing your story, @bruinzfan! I’m really glad to hear how much better you’re doing after identifying the foods you’re intolerant to. 75% better and a reduction in migraines is definitely a win! Thanks again for telling us more about your IBS story. Take care. – Chris, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team

I found that using a heating pad helps the cramps. I take Donnatal, although the medication makes me feel very drugged. I have tried taking one only at bedtime, seems to help. Been having “almost” normal bowl movements,and no cramps. Refer to the FODMAP, very helpful in terms of diet. I found that I was also eating the wrong foods.

I also have been having the pressure, pain, and cramping more often. I have called in sick more frequently due to it. I am so upset that I have to call in so frequently. My doctor prescribed a medication that I take under my tongue (sublingual) which doesn’t help much. Any suggestions?

Hi, @susieoo9fl – Thanks for your question. If you haven’t already, this would be a great thing to bring up to your doctor the next time you have a visit, if you haven’t already. Unfortunately, we cannot provide medical advice (for your safety). In the meantime, we do have this article that talks more about gallbladder removal and IBS:…
