What the heck can be going on with me?? Last week I was the one with the terrible awful Labor Day weekend,then this past Friday I was hit with the worse case of IBS D than I can remember for a long time, I am on Imodium, Caltrate (3) a day, Librax and Colestid which is not doing a darn thing for me, with all this meds. I still got a terrible bout that will not stop completly. With this attack I felt as though I had the flu, but I do not, felt as if I had a fever- which I did not. I got a real sick feeling and got awful dizzy-- Did anyone ever have this happen to them with an attack? I am really worried that this something worse than IBS--and yes I have had a colonoscopy and it showed no inflammation. I am totally completely fed up with this and somehow am going to come up with something to stop this even if it means going through with a total colostomy--I cannot deal with this anymore!!!

I know how you feel i had those days myself alot!!!Lately i haven't been as bad but i can remeber when i was going through withdraw from my med's <limbitrol> and i wasn't on caltrate, i was having this fear that their was something really wrong with me.I would get this dropping of my heart feeling because my gut would tell me in it's strange and undeliteful way that"your going to be sick"and i would run to the bathroom,but the weird thing was i knew i had to go but it was like it wouldn't just come out without the pain..The PAIN is what i hated..it's so hard to describe it,my gut would burn and with every burning there would be a movement then it would start all over again and again,sometimes i'd be in the bathroom for nights in cold sweat,shaking,and almost in tears trying to get a grip saying to myself "it will be all over soon" to myself over again in my head..it was all i could do..So believe me i know what it feels like..your not alone.I started staying away from dairy and then not eating so many veggies at one time or even too much at one time and taking caltrate and getting back on my med is the only thing that has kinda helped me so far..so please hang in there..i'm with you..we all are believe me.-------------------Cadia-Baker that can't eat her own Cheessecake..lol http:www.cakesbynikki.com

Jade--I know what you are dealing with. I had a horrible attack this morning..the worst in months. I took 3 Imodiums which helped me make it through the day. (However, I know I will pay for taking that many in about 4 days!) I am also on Librax. I have tried Caltrate and that didn't help either. With this morning's attack, I was sweating, shaky, dizzy, nauseous..I felt as if was going to pass out!! Then when it was over (or shall I say all out) I was shivering. This IBS thing is terrible! I was doing so well all summer long. I started my job again two weeks ago(teaching) and I've been sick since. I am also determined to not let this get the best of me. It is hard though when you are suffering! I wish you well!! Gina

Thank you for your support and replies. I was getting really worried about these symptoms( Dizzy, shaky, nausea), but it seems like the same old IBS, and others are suffering along with me and I am not alone, Does it make you wonder why you can go through the summer feeling decent and now get hit so bad? I can not wait for that new drug alosetron to come out next year, but then if that does not help it will really be a huge letdown!! Gina- Do you take Librax every day and how many?
