Some folks with can and do alternate between D and C. I wouldn't be concerned... it is part of the nature of IBS. And obviously the nature of your IBS since you have seen some alternation in the past.Of course the worrying doesn't help you... so I would reign that in if I were you. Try a simple stool softener.. without a laxative. They do not "make" you go but rather make it easier to
go. Course upping your fiber can help too. Try a bit of apple or prune juice maybe??I think alternating IBS or IBS-A can be very frustrating to deal with..... it is a fine balancing act!
Please remember this is a group of folks seeking support on how to live with and manage IBS. THESE ARE ONLY MY OWN THOUGHTS. IF YOU WANT AN EXPERT OPINION, ASK A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.
