Is IBS and mild form of epilepsy connected?

About the same time as being diagnosed with IBS, I was also diagnosed with mild epilepsy (not with fits). When I have an attack of IBS C now, even though i am on a low does if epilepsy medication, i have a day of epilepsy symptoms (dizzy spells, confusion and patterns in front of my vision) at the same time as my IBS.

    I'm sorry you are going through this difficult situation. I think in this case, only a doctor can answer appropriately. Working on the site for a while, I have seen an awful lot of combinations of IBS and other disorders or illnesses. I hope that your symptoms improve and please let us know how you'r doing. I hope today is a good one. -Todd, IrritableBowelSyndrome.net Team
