Id like to know if the intense cramping is normal of IBS-D, and if anyone experiences pain to the same degree as described above?
How do you find relief specifically for the extreme cramping?
Imodium has been the only thing that gives me relief but sometimes it doesnt help quick enough with the extreme cramps when Im first discovering that Im having an IBS episode. .

I rub high THC cannabis oil on my tummy and it relieves about 60-70% of the cramping pain within 15 seconds(essentially the time it takes me to rub it in). Applied topically you feel absolutely nothing in your head, just less pain at the area of application. You won't feel anything in your head using topicals unless you apply it to your head or armpits.
I have chronic pain from arthritis and a rare bone disease called MHE, but only stomach cramps from my severe IBS-D have ever reached a pain level 10 for me.

Hi There, This reminds me of colon spasms I used to have along with my IBS-D. Here is an article: https://www.healthli...lth/colon-spasm
Noca's idea seems good. Also, upward pressure on the rectum seemed to provide relief.
I still have IBS-D, but haven't experienced colon spasms in several years. I don't know why. The pain takes your breath away. It is very different from a cramp. Best of luck with this.

Hi there, I have the exact same thing! It is awful, and personally I have just had to deal with it.

Mebeverine AND peppermint capsules taken at the same time.
And say a hot water bottle or hot shower(if I'm not too weak to stand)helps reduce them a fair bit...
But won't get rid of the horrible sharp pain and pressure in the bowels and stomach though.
Also trying to relax helps somewhat...
I use a nature sound machine and deep breathing excersises for that.

When I was being diagnosed with IBS, my doctor asked me if I ever got painful cramps. Apparently that is fairly common with IBS. Once in a while I get what I guess would be called cramps. The pain can range from mild to severe. If I'm lucky, I will go very shortly after the cramps start, and if I go a sufficient amount the cramps will be significantly less painful or go away entirely. But sometimes I only go a little [diarrhea] at a time, so the painful cramps will continue. It's rare that I have very severely painful cramps, but I've had it that bad before. I used to get them so bad that I would curl up to try to slow things down and ease up the cramps. But sometimes, that just prolongs or delays the inevitable.

Then the heat wave comes and I try to get rid of my clothes if I can..I am sweating so much by this moment that my skin is soaked and my chest and arms are burning! If the explosive diarrhea hasn't started by this moment then I start throwing up violently. It is awful! Like my body is tryng to get rid of that particular food by all means possible! It lasts about 10-15 min but to me it is neverending..
I double check everything I eat just so I can avoid this..haven't had an attack in a month now.
