I have been suffering every single day for 38 days. It was not until yesterday I felt a little better, and it seems today I am on my way back to normal.You guys experience the same length of time? That was 38 excrutiating, painful days.Now that I seem to be on the mend....how do I keep from relapsing back into a spasm? Is there anything to keep in mind? Since day 1 I have been taking FiberSure every day with breakfast. I have also been eatin Activia for the last 8 days. I wonder if either of those have anything to do with my feeling better?

I just had an attack that lasted probably 5 or 6 days, and had to take 2 days off work it was so bad.Now i'm back to "normal" (normal for me is, like snookman, always still having some symptons).

RAJ,MEMBER,Mook, I have stomach pain every day since a couple of months. I have consulted two GI specialists and they do not want to give me any pain killers and suggest to take acetaminophen(Tylenol)which does not work. They also said that I consult my family physician for any stronger pain medication and refused to give any pain medication. I called my family doctor and he said he would talk to my GI. What is the fiber medication you are taking?I am taking Citrucul and have also tried Miralax. Is it called FiberSure? I have never heard of it! Please let me know. I will let you know after my family physican talks to GI specialist. Incidentally, I have IBC-C. Good luck

Raj, I am using Fibersure, from the makers of Metamucil. It does add bulk to my stool, but it doesn't change the fact I still have to go about 5 times a day.Today is day 39 of Pain, D and C. GI doc called yesterday and told me my latest test results are in and there's nothing medically wrong with me!! He was so damn quick to get off the phone with me too. Frankly, I think he thinks I'm just over reacting. But anyone who has had IBS knows, it is really serious.My life has pretty much ceased these past 39 days and I feel myself getting more and more helpless. No more nature/photography walks. No more going out with my wife for a night on the town. No more life!This is killing me and I can't get any damn help!
