  1. Your Story
    Hi all, My story is so long and convoluted that I think I will just give a very brief gist so I can ask the most important questions. Years ago my then family doctor told me I had a mild case of IBS (didn't really have D or C then). Best Dr. I ever had and he ran off to play golf in Phoenix...

    I'm new to the forums, so forgive me if this gets long. Some backstory, to introduce myself: I'm 23, and I've been dealing with what I think is IBS of some kind since childhood. I've always had trouble pooping, my mom says it was an issue even when I was a baby. I took colace when I was little...
  3. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    The L. rhamnosus strain has numerous benefits including "reduced stress induced corticosterone and anxiety and depression behavior" (see below). I know GNC and vitamin shop carry this strain and I am wondering if anyone on here has tried probiotics with this strain...

  5. Women's Health Issues
    In my teens I was diagnosed with a retroverted or tilted uterus. I suffered with constipation and incomplete evacuation and later was diagnosed with IBS-C. I have seen my IBS -C progress to the point where even 145mg of Linzess sometimes does not work ( I know I could up the dose). Thank God MOM...
  6. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi everyone, I had a minor case of IBS C about 7 years ago when I was 20 and it went into remission about 8 months later, after which I was able to eat everything. My symptoms then, though were just constipation, which were aided by a natural fiber supplement powder at night. I was able to...

    About me; this is my first post, however I have been lurking these forums for a long time, I suffer from IBS C and have been diagnosed with SIBO which I have managed very well by following the FODMAP diet, but never experienced full remission. Has anyone tried the diet 'a starch solution' by DR...
  8. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this site but not with IBS, it took 2 years for the doctors to finally give me a diagnosis- I still have slight doubt as to whether they were right. It started when I was 16, I had severe stomach pain, and difficulty going to the toilet. Then I began to vomit nearly...
  10. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    My constipation issues started a couple of years ago when, for some odd reason, I suddenly couldn't *go* to the toilet at all. Up until this point I had been fairly regular, albeit with the odd bout of constipation here or there. When I got totally bunged up, I wasn't able to *go* to the toilet...
  11. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I have IBS-c and have been 'managing' this to various degrees by following a (mostly) low FODMAP diet and with laxatives (senna - the stimulant type). My Dr prescribed senna to me and told me it was 'safe' as long as I keep the dose low and try and take them sparingly. Over the past couple of...
  12. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I was wondering if anyone has had any success with alleviating constipation by going gluten free? I have gradually been moving to the low fodmap diet (without much success in alleviating constipation) but the only thing I haven't eliminated is gluten. I am now considering reducing or...
  13. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    So I've been suffering with constipation for quite a while now. A lot of pain/burning sensation on my right side of my bowels and now recently pain/burning sensation through my lower abdomen. I blame all my digestive issues on an eating disorder I'm trying to recover from. I don't know what's...

  15. Welcome!
    Hello everyone. I am new to the site and I'm glad I found it. I'm an 18 year old female. I was diagnosed with IBS a little more than 2 years ago. I was in denial for awhile. I felt embarrassed that I have this and embarrassed to even talk about it at first. I have finally come to the realization...
  16. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi Everyone, In December I finally had a colonoscopy to figure out if there was a reason I was suffering from severe chronic constipation and gas/bloating/pain etc. Everything was structurally normal and I was diagnosed with IBS-C and lazy bowel syndrome. I was given TONS of sample bottles of...

    Please, help me if you can. I'm in a dilemma and doctors aren't much help. For two weeks I was incredibly ill. Vomiting constantly no matter what I put in my stomach, including water. I was emitted to the ER and they had no idea what was wrong....so I put two and two together myself. I have a...

But i still get cramps. Was given mebeverine that blocked me up and made me worse. Doc has just given me amitriptyline. I...
  19. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    For two weeks I've been dealing with some serious muscle tension. It's completely shut down my digestive system and rendered my, usually helpful, medications useless (exlax, probiotics, herbal bowel tonic). I'm drinking lots of water, I stretch, I've tried both a coffee and warm water enema...
