I've been experiencing IBS - C for over 3 months now. I've been using Dulcolax and Movicol including doing two days of the intense version where you take 6-8 sachets in a day. Nothing has helped. I feel so so uncomfortable and hugely bloating permanently. Before and after eating. I'm seeing two specialists and after breath tests, stool tests, blood tests, CT scan they can't tell what's wrong with me. Acupuncture didn't help either.
I'm getting really desperate now, it's causing me depression and anxiety. There's so much a don't do because of this.
Has anyone tried a colonic and did it help? - any suggestions would be great or to hear if anyone else is experiencing this
Feeling really low right now

so sorry you are feeling so miserable. living with chronic consttipation can be difficult.
did you have a sitz marker test (sometimes called a colonic transit study or shapes study). that will show if you have colonic inertia. i was dx'd with that.
i never had a colonic but we have had posts here on the board from people who have had them and said that it helped. i'm not sure if those people are still on here or not but hopefully some one will chime in about that.
good luck with everything. hope you can find some relief.
these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.
