I've had a really bad flare-up this past week. I've had so much stress, though. I left a job under duress that I'd been working for the last 4 years, a lot going on there. I'm in the process of trying to find a new job, with the hours and pay that I had at my old one, more stress. I've been having an attck once or twice a day for the last week, and I found that if I took an Immodium or two, I was good for the rest of the day, then the D and cramping would be back the next day again. So, I went to my doc, and he prescribed Bentyl, which I took years ago. I hope this works, and that the stress in my life is reduced soon! Thanks for letting me vent!
