What should I do? I was diagnosed with IBS 6 5 months ago and was doing pretty good that was until 6/26. I was at work anddidn't feel well so I took a half day and went home. That night the pain in my colon area was so painful and when I tried to use the restroom I couldn't go. I called in sick and went back to my doctor who refered me to a specialist. Now today, I can't stop from going to the bathroom. In the last couple hours I have goon 4 times. I feel so bad and sick today that there is no way I can go to work. Thank goodness for sick days. Is there anything over the counterthat I can take that either wont stop me up or unclog me to much. I do see some improvement from Wednesday but not much.Thanks,JAW

Hi- Sorry to hear you are feeling so bad. My doctor prescribed me Bentyl, which helps with the pain and relaxes everything. To stop the D, I use Lomotil (presription) or Immodium. I like Immodium best--the Lomotil makes me very tired and backs everything up for a few days. Drink plently of fluids and get some rest. Try not to stress out about it too much--I think it makes it worse for me. I've had times where I have had D 4-5 times in an hour, so I know how uncomfortable you are right now.Feel better,Stephanie

Can anyone else give me advice on this. Also, would it be possible for me to have a stomach virus and not another problem with IBS since it started up again just like that?Thank,JAW

When are you going to the specialist? I also experience bad pain in my lower right side. I have Bentyl for the pain. I'm also on fiber (Citrucel). It helps regulate you. I like Pepto when I'm running to the bathroom a lot. Also, try to eat some crackers. Hope this helps! Feel better!
