Sorry Flux,I just posted on effexor..dadeda, but have a question that is easy for you. We all have "gas" right? or we would explode. lol.What I would like to know is that why does it hurt so much in IBS??? I KNOW that fro whatever reason we are more sensitive to stimuli because of all the nerves in the lining so that makes sense why it hurts. I plan on compiling a print out of info and dropping it off at the Dr hopefull today or tomorrow because I just cannot do this anymore. I just don't get it why some people walk around and fart fart fart and laugh about it when I have and pass it it HURTS like the dickens. Sorry for the slang. I mean I do understand it but I want to know more specifics in detail..for the Dr.And feel free to put in a cute graphic for me ok?? You may roll your eyes and think this is a stupid question..but I need it in detail ok? I'm so tired of treating myself with no meds and getting no where.ThanxDeb <~~~~~~the pest.------------------Keep moving forward...even if you must crawl.
