Lomotal I used to have ibs-d really bad. Unannounced, no warning blow up diarrhea right in your pants. It did not matter where you were. At church at the mall made no difference you just went in your pants. Incredibly embarrassing. Anyway my doctor tried me on Lomotal and it worked. One 2.5 mg every several hours. It ended up working best at three pills a day, al...

Low Gas Pain

Posted by baseballfan67 in baseballfan67's Blog, 27 May 2017 · 211 views

I was wondering if any other men with IBS experience some of the same symptoms as I do on a regular basis. Specifically, I would like to know if anyone gets sometimes severe cramping very low down in the abdomen with pain that extends all the way to the tip of the penis. When I get this pain it can last for a few hours but is relieved when I have a bowel...

New here and I really need some help. I had a perfectly normal functioning bowel until last August, when I woke up with severe abdominal pain and rushed to the bathroom. I had rectal bleeding, and went to the ER where they diagnosed me with colitis and gave me flagyl and cipro. Thought that would be the end of it. Of course it is now 6 months later and I'...

Scared and don't know what to do

Posted by Fairydust44 in Fairydust44's Blog, 22 January 2017 · 521 views

Hey guys,
I am really stuck with what to do. Last week I had a Colonic Transit Study (Sitz marker test) after seeing a bowel specialist nurse and a surgeon saying there was nothing she could do but possibly a stoma in future if things don't improve. It has shown my bowel isn't working and all the markers were still there after the 6th day of swallo...

inulin, fibre, fiber, metamucil and 6 more...

Inulin fibre is supposed to help for some conditions.  I've been taking a pretty effective mix of herbs and supplements, but then I added inulin about two weeks ago, and lately my symptoms have gone and got worse again.  I had also lapsed on my calcium for about the past 5 days, but the whole thing is curious.  I'm left wondering if anyone...
