Hi all.A little background - I'm a 31 year old male. I've had IBS-D for years ... maybe 5-7 years or so. I've tried a lot of things to bring some sort of normalcy back to my life and put my mind at ease, but nothing has really worked 100% ... I take Metamucil twice a day, and that keeps me pretty regularly. I also eat 6oz of plain yogurt per day.I've been prescribed Levin by my GI -- but that stuff simply doesn't work for me. I pop two at the first sign of discomfort hoping it would head-off the cramping and IBS-D, but no go. I end up taking Imodium after the first IBS-D BM, then have to take another .. then things normally settle down a bit.When my body decides that IBS-D is the acronym of the day, it hits heavy, fast, and hard. To me, the ridiculous urgency is bad, but the burning is worse. I can deal with cramps and "walk them off" for the most part, but the burning is horrible. I'm 31 years old ... I'm married with two young kids. This IBS-D is handicapping our family life and our social night life is completely non-existent. 95% of the time my problems occur in the evening, between 9-midnight, for whatever reason. That makes any sort of nighttime activity very uneasy for me, because even though during a normal month I'll only have 1 to 2 IBS-D days, who knows when those will be.My mother has had digestive issues for as long as I can imagine, and she is a colon cancer survivor. Growing up, we never went out to dinner because my Mother always feared that she'd need to use that bathroom and would be stuck somewhere (in the car, for instance) where that wouldn't be possible. I do NOT want to lead that life. Because of the family history with digestion problems, my GI ordered a colonoscopy a couple years ago and the only issue that he found were diverticula.I'm interested to hear what real people are doing out there to cope with IBS-D. What is working, what isn't, and ... is the burning normal? God I hate the burning.Edit: I forgot to mention, I'm in a PPI for GERD. Currently the drug of choice is Omeprazole (generic Priolsec), but in the past I've taken Nexium (until my insurance company decided to no longer cover it), Aciphex, etc. I have to wonder if PPIs have something to do with my IBS-D.
