Hello folks - first post, long time IBS sufferer. My primary issue is that, usually around 2 in the AM, I'm woken with abdominal pain just below the belly button that is relieved through multiple BMs. It usually wakes me at 2am, I go, then again at 2:30am, I go, then again at 3am, and I go, and then it's over. This used to happen only once every other month - now it's once a week. Anyone else had that? My doctor recommended metamucil, which I haven't taken as frequently as directed, but I'd like to know if that's helped others here. I also used to think it was the following foods that caused it: fatty foods, dairy, alcohol. Now it seems to happen regardless. Any suggestions?
