what meds worked for you?quote:Originally posted by Girl:Guys hey, I am sitting here and just reading post after post and thinking to myself how horrible thing is to hande with these so "weird"symptoms.. unbelievable.. I had been going through this since the age of 12. In the junior high school I was so suffering from gas and pains in the stomach that I didn't know what to do with myself, it destroyed my life. I remembered at the age of 12 and I always think about these 10 days before I noticed something is happening to me, how I wanted the days when all was fine with me, I was so happy before this IBS, Damn will be this IBS.About the noises of the stomach, I was too shamed of all these bad things are that happened to me.. and I didn't know how to explain it to the teachers that my stomach makes "Noises" so I can't concentrate on the tests, it was a nightmare... a nightmare I've cried nights over nights, I couldn't sleep, and in every night I said to myself and wished so hard that Tomorrow will never come, I didn't want to be worried, I didn't want to suffer so much and after 3 years of trying to keep my sanity, I came to the high school.. was the same just that there, it was new people, so I was worried less, but as the days have passed by.. it all began like before.. uf I am so tired of thinking of all the bad things that happened to me right at the age of 12. I feel like they gave me just, just.. 12 years to live normally and then what?And all the students always made fun of me.. it was like a living nightmare.. If I am thinking of it too much what I had back at these days I am afraid not to loose my mind.. my normality has been taken for me at the time of the junior high school.Ok, so I am right now in the army, I've suffered a lot there, I didn't had how to explain my problem, I felt like I don't want to live.. then I finished the novitiate.. when my papa saw me he was like in shock from the way I looked, he doesn't know until these days -how before 7 months I handled with the IBS. It was so bad.. and wish my family will never know how much I've suffered since the age of 12..then right now I am working as a secretary.. what can I do, on the tests I wasn't able to be calm so I failed in all and it really broke my heart but before a few days I started to take one med (It's my first med) called Encypalmed.. I want to think positive that I am not dreaming, it's really took off all these noises (Gas) from my stomach and I've noticed that in my voice thanks to the med I am more calm.. plus I need to go again to the doc, I need to eat food, a healthy food.. it not that I am eating like bad things though, just I want to see maybe I need to eat only soup things I know..I am sorry for writing so much.. just wanted to say that after 8 years of feeling so down of it, and the feeling like you're dying slowly, one day came and since I am taking the med 7 days ago, I almost felt normal again.. normal again.All the best my friends..Girl from Israel..

Finally, people who understand how I feel. I feel the exact same way. No matter how much I try to overcome it mentally, I just can't overcome such situations as you mentioned. I'm at a loss for words cause I honestly wish there was something that would stop it...it ruins going to school, jobs, and every social activities...even as simple as hanging out, as you said in a quiet place. I can't do it.quote:Originally posted by eliz07:ive had ibs for the past four years and i have yet to find anything that works. ive changed my diet and im otherwise young and healthy.<br /><br /> pretty much everything is normal for me except that i have serious anxiety about being someplace quiet. my stomach makes really loud noises because im nervous about being someplace quiet and that just gets me more nervous etc etc.<br /><br /> clearly this is triggered by anxiety, and ive tried zelnorm, to no avail, and now zoloft which i guess is ok but nothing will end the noises. help!!! i feel so embarassed to go to class or work or take tests or even hang out with people.... <br /><br /> does anyone else have a similar problem? it seems like everyone has multiple symptoms. im almost more confused because all i have is my stomach making noise... whats that about?!?!

I had the same thing as you and now i'm normal again. i had diarrea every morning a the stomach noises also. I now take Lexapro and Librax I take 1 20mg. Lexapro in the morning and Librax 4 times a day. The Librax slows down your digestive system to take out mor water so you have solid bowel movements and the Lexapro is for the axiety. I hope this helps you.I know what it was like. I never went out much,avoided quiet places etc. Good luck, Stevequote:Originally posted by Liddo_Wun:Finally, people who understand how I feel.

Add sucralose (Splenda) to the list as well. Stuff with aspartame appears to be safe, though.quote:Eliz with gas/rumbling issues really the only sugar free things you need to be looking out for are the sugar alcohols (sorbitol, mannitol, anything ending in -itol)Fructose on it's own can be a problem.

Hello, I'm Steve and have been through this for years. I found a cure that worked really well for me. I finally made a Dr.appointment(the last one of the day, so no one was in the Quiet waiting room) I ended up taking Librax also know as clidinium/cdp. I had bad diarrea everyday and it stopped it along with the stomach noises. what it does is slow down your digestive system it takes out more water so you have normal bowel movements. I take this 3-4 times aday.It is a capsule. I also take Lexapro20mg. 1 time in the morning, It has really built up my confidents. At first the Librax made me just a little sleepy but not to bad to drive or work safely. Other than that i'm doing 100% better. you might talk to your Dr. about it. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.quote:Originally posted by wewillsurvive:Wow I've never done an online posting like this before but it's so nice to hear people who have the same problem of ridiculous stomach/intestinal noises and fear of quiet places. I made up the term "gas-trophobia" for it! It has really bothered me on and off all throughout college. There were only a couple of times where people actually noticed it but there were so many times where I feared it and it made me panic (heart beating fast, sweating, worse gas/stomach noises, etc.) It is truly this psychosematic disorder - it starts with IBS/stomach noises, causing anxiety which just worsens your symptoms. And guilt! Of all the silly problems to have, THIS one is causing me so much stress and drama?!! I'm out of school now but it's the quiet office setting and meetings which drive me crazy. I can get through them (I have no choice!) but I usually have to concentrate really hard, do deep breathing, or move around a lot. I feel so immature, but I can't help it. It usually peaks at some moment then dissapates, but all that stress seems so unnecessary!! I feel so much better just reading all these posts!! I'll try the tea and other suggestions I've seen here and on other sites; I think for me some anti-depressants would definitely help just reduce the stress and help me cope with other life problems, too. Life is so weird...

I eat about the same amount everyday. Take the Librax about 1/2 hour before you eat. This may help regulate your system. Keep me posted, Stevequote:Originally posted by wewillsurvive:Oh, the other thing I wanted to ask about was your eating patterns. Once in a while I will have a day where I will eat less for whatever reason, sometimes to calm down my stomach, and then I will get in a cycle where I will not be able to eat for a few days or a week. Eating makes me nauseous (my stomach will feel like a tight ball), I will go to the bathroom right after I eat sometimes, and I will have no appetite. I will have to force myself to eat so as not to keep losing weight and to have energy (and because it's clearly necessary!). Any advice on how to get out of these cycles when they happen? I try just eating small amounts til I get my appetite back but it still persists sometimes. Thanks!
