I have had this spasm "thing" for years, but it usually only lasted for a day or two. I have now been in the midst of this battle for ten months. My insides shake, multiple bowel movements (small, hard knots) and now and then watery stool. I have had all the scope,, CTScans, etc - all negative. I get light headed, shake like I am out in the snow-NAKED, and can no longer tell if this is causing the stress or visa versa. I can take anticholergenics and clonesapam, basically "zone" out - but this is unacceptable for the long term. I am a GrandPa, have a really great life in all respects, but this is getting the best of me. Everyone always say do the fiber thing. Fiber makes the spasms much worse, am I not trying it long enough? HELP!!!

If your worst problem is Diarrhea, I would suggest trying Caltrate. Look for LNAPE's calcium thread on the OTC forum.Your symptoms sound like mine and it's helped me immeasurably.

Try the Caltrate, start slowly and work your way up. Read all the post about Caltrate here and seewhat you think. Whenever my IBS acts up and I go back on the Caltrate it straights me out in short order.
