Extreme fatique after an episode
Posted 09 February 2015 - 02:06 PM
Whenever I have an episode of having a bowel movement every 30 minutes or so, I wind up so tired I can hardly function. Is this "normal" or should I consult my doctor about the fatigue?

Bitsy, sorry to say I don't think this is exactly normal but it sure is common with us IBS folks. I have flare ups and bouts, where all of my symptoms are acting up at once, which can last days or weeks, and during these times, I have awful fatigue, in general and with BM. Other folks here talk about the fatigue too...not sure what anyone else is finding helpful with the fatigue, but rest and quiet time to rebalance and get mended is probably the best medicine for that if ones life will allow!

Thanks for the reply. I know it is probably quite common with IBS people but I just wanted to check.

But bitsy don't rule out other causes for you, many things can cause fatigue, hormones, thyroid, adrenal deficiency and vitamin deficiency, you may want to do some more reading on these things too to see if any of the additional symptoms match what you are feeling as well.
