I just had a real bad bout with my IBS. I was happy to read the past postings most people don't understand what I go through they think the pain is in my head. I was on the toilet from 2o to 6:30 without getting off I don't go to the bathroom just mucus. I hear a lot of noise in my intestines and the pain is like when I had my children, I know when the pain is concentrated in my pelvis area I will soon be relieved and have D. Which I am glad to have at that point. I try to stay on a strict diet of lots of fiber, salad,vegies and Citracil. Most of the time it works. I was wondering if anyone else had these symptoms?
