well i finally went to see the neurologist today (ive only been waiting to see him for about 50 yrs )
he assures me that my constant headaches are in no way connected with my ibs, basically my doc has been talking a lot of bollocks
I went to get an ECG done apart from having a heart murmer it was ok. I have to go back next week and get a brain scan done. The professor i saw was brilliant and he was amazed that for the last 8 years with these damn headaches i have never once been referred to see anyone i think he was quite angry at that.So the moral of this story is..... dont let your doc blame ibs for everything, i will have a few choice words for my doc when i see her

Hi joolie, Hope all goes well. I know how you feel doc's hear IBS and it is cause of any complaint you have or they think it is all in or head. I get some serious headaches during IBS attacks. I finally found a Doc who would listen before judging. He believed the headaches were caused by stress & panic of the expected pain & discomfort of the upcoming event. Relaxation & stress meds reduce the occurrence of these headaches. I still feel "Woogly" (my word) I often feel sea sick before & after serious attacks. Do this happen to anyone else?
