IBS and Dyssergenic Defecation - Suggestions?

I have had IBS for very many ears, on and off, and now suffer from this complaint much worse than ever with the added embarrassment of having to cope with some condition called Dyssergenic Defecation. I have tried many remedies without success and don't think any particular causes my symptoms to worsen, except for rich, creamy foods increase my already awful lower abdominal spasms. I also find that after manually opening my bowels ( which I have to do most of the time) I suffer from even worse abdominal pain for about an hour afterwards. I am a divorced mother and 68 years old. Was thinking of trying out Symprove liquid, or Rheal powder supplement, or Gut Cleanse (greens). But so expensive and disappointing trialling these products. Thanks.

  1. I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this. You’re not alone. I hope other community members will chime in soon to share their experiences with the products you mentioned.
    I have found this article: that mentions a similar condition (towards the end) and suggests biofeedback as a treatment. Have you tried something like that, or even pelvic floor physical therapy?
    I really hope you’ll find something that helps soon.
    Wishing you all the best,
