Recently I had some dental workdone. As a pain reliever, I was given a prescription for a few pills of vicodin (hydrocodone). Well, the painfrom the dental work, really wasn't that bad, and I probably could have got by OK without the prescription. The interesting find was that my digestion was reasonably calmwhen I took the pills and returned to the old IBS waysafter the effect of the pills ended. I'm seeing my GIsoon and am wondering if this info has some value ... or is it just another fact/symptom that goes in one ear and out the other?
