IBS has a habit most of the time of calming down during sleep, so if you wake up several times a night on a regular basis, especially with watery diarrhea (and especially if it is typically worse during sleep), that may mean you need a colonoscopy with biopsies unless you had one since that started.IBS can be all day every day.If it seems to be related to hard dry stools, then preventing hard dry stools (either osmotic laxatives or fiber) will help.Some people seem to find antihistamines can help, but mostly this is more about annoying rather than dangerous.
Youre preaching to the choir!! I have suffered to extensive gas, bloating, and mucus most of my life. When im really having a bad bout of Ibs i pass so much mucus that it pours out of me. I have posted a few times about how to conrol this and it seems to be a mystery. Im trying pro biotics at the moment to see if its a bacterial problem, im also trying oil of oregano which kills bacteria overgrowth in the intestines, as well as yeast to see if that helps the mucus. There is 1 product called mucosal sold by jini patel, the author of "listen to your gut". Not sure if it works, but its supposo heal the mucus lining and heal the issue. Might be worth looking into.
