I have been researching and reading these boards so I am hoping you all can shed some light for me.I was diagnosed about 10 years ago with IBS, I had numerous tests at that time. Since then it came and went. But in the past month it is like all &*%$ broke loose! I don't suffer from D or C, just very mild C sometimes, but not really concerning. I have terrible abdominal cramping and pain. I have lost 8 lbs becaues I can't eat anything, it seems like everything I eat makes me feel more crampy, trapped gas, grumbling. ( sorry if descriptive, kind of hard to put differently) Plus, I get full after eating almost nothing and then I bloat up.In the past month I have had blood work twice, all was fine. Ultrasound, fine. Abdominal CT scan, fine. And am waiting for an Upper GI this Thursday, and I have a 2 month wait to get into the GI doctor here in Texas!!Any advice, help would be so much appreciated. I am depressed and scared and it's not like I can just talk about it to friends or family.. I am embarrassed. Thanks. ...sorry so long!

Hi Susan
and welcome. I also suffer from severe abdominal cramping and pain. It moves and differs daily. I go from C to D depending on the day also and look pregnant after eating (especially bread). I've been through all the tests and they tell me I have IBS
Know that you're not alone.

you may want to combine with aloe vera gel- which has helped me.Started slippery bark yesterday - not sure what effect.Had a huge lunch, with no complications - however takes about 6 hours before i know if the world will explode.bill
