I am having a REALLY hard time lately with my IBS-D Things were under somewhat of a "control" for the past few months - but around Christmas, it has all been in an uproar! My IBS-D is out of control, once again. I've had to take Immodium to be able to function. In functioning, I'm talking about even to leave the house - that's how bad it is! The Immodium gives me stomach pains, but I can live with that. I'm good to go for a day or two, maybe 5 days if I'm lucky - but then, its like everything breaks through and its horrible all over again. Its like the Immodium clogs things up but then it releases with a vengenance and I'm back to square one - and in worse shape each time. I dont know what to do but take Immodium - I have to go to work. I just popped another one this morning and now I'm dreading the back lash of it that will happen sometime this week! I do drink my Citracel faithfully every night and take my Calcium to try and keep things under control. I'm just frustrated because it all seems like a vicious cycle that is not fun anymore. Stop the ride - I want off!
