Do others suffer chill like symptoms and sometimes nausea prior to a loose stool? Is this common? Also upset because the calcium carbonate was working so well and suddenly the last two weeks I have had a recurrence of my diaharrea just when I thought it was under control. I know that somehow magically at some point it correct itself generally. I can't explain this cyclical nature of this condition but it is so frustrating - esp since I am going on holiday next week and I need it under control!!! Therefore any suggestions for a 'quick fix' so I know my holiday will be enjoyable? Just to let you know, I do not take any prescribed meds for IBS, just rely on diet, exercise, calcium carbonate and sometimes immodium (very sparingly) as I do not like the rebound effect I get from it - constipation then diaharrea again often. Please give me any other ideas you might have so I can enjoy my vacation!!!Thanks for any ideas you might have.

good for u about the drugs..........imodium is just as bad...........there is a book called fiber menace..........it can help..........also look into adrenal fatigue..........they have alot to do with the intestines..........the next time u feel it coming on, try taking about 1/8th tsp of sea salt & dissolve it in water, then drink, follow with more water..........u might need alittle potassium, but the salt may help.........if it does, look at the adrenal fatigue...........

I get minor chills / sweat feeling feverish before bouts of D. Usually it goes away after a few trips. I used to think I ate something bad but I am pretty sure it's the IBS. Though I think if you have the fever symptoms for long start checking your temperature it could be something else and be more serious.

Thank you for your suggestions. Good to know that I am not alone in my symptoms - by the way I have no fever associated with the chills, just a feeling of malaise which disappears after a while. I feel okay generally and it does not rule my life, but it can make vacationing a difficult thing. As I said, going on vacation next week - just hope this present flareup eases off before the weekend. Thinking of starting on yogurt regime again, but worried that even that form of milk product is not great when I am suffering a flareup. Used to use Metamucil, but have given it up.....perhaps I should give it a try again. Just don't think using calcium carbonate, and metamucil is such a great idea (as well as yogurt).........any comments?

Me personally?? I wouldn't change things up too much while on vacation. I would keep the calcium carbonate up and refrain from trying the yogurt regime or re-trying the fiber til you return from your trip. Bring imodium and try to have an excellent time! :(All the best
