I usually have IBS with D but this latest attack I am having a heck of a time with constipation. Normally stress is my trigger then food irriates it. Right now I am having constipation and really painful hemmies. I was talking to the Doctor about the stress and she put me on Librax. She said that not only does it stop the spasims in the colon but also kinda have a relaxing effect for the stress. Does anyone know if this is true? Or does it cause constipation? I have been on it for three days. The day after the Doctor appointment I had a very painful bathroom day. Went three times. First one was small and hard second one was bloody, large, but soft. Thrird one was bloody and but soft. Did not go yesterday and today have very soar hemmies and a little bloody. Hemmies are killing me!!! I have increased fiber. I take benefiber mixed in crystal light. Gradually going up on the dose. I take it twice a day. I also have the metamucil caplets. I also eat more fiber and take Colace (stool softner). Am I on the right path??? I am doing so much better than I was 2 months ago but I really wish these hemmies would go away.
