Hi...I'm Don. New to the board, but I dare say, at 48 I may be one of the longer IBS Veterans around. At age 7...they told me I had a 'Spastic Duodenum',,,at at 15 'Mucous colitis', then 'Spastic Colon' , then of course, IBS...I'm sure you folks have heard all of the names. Anyway, I've mostly had IBS-D...some C...or...not? Here's my question: Has anyone ever had what I call 'Constipated Diahrea'? I mean , I get the cramps...feel like I better get to the bowl quickly...only to sit and get zippo...then, after contorting myself, pushing (cursing) bending (cursing) twisting (Promising God everything), sweating and, did I mention cursing? Then, I get (this is gross, I know) a blob, or a piece or pieces...but they are NOT rocks...it's mush.Naturally, even after all of these years...I still get nervous when it goes on for a week...Especially, when a Hemmorrhoid breaks..Bottom line...anybody else get the 'Gotta GO NO' cramps only to do nothing...then a soft blob later?

Plenty of times I've had to strain to go BM and it ends up being extremely soft (what I'll call D) and sometimes (after all the straining) it's such a small amount that it's almost like calling "wolf." The smaller amounts of D happen right before a big bout of D and it also happens when I'm coming off a big bout of D. It's annoying, I know.

Hi Don - (Have to say - Love the Beatledude user name - my kids are Beatle freaks - they know more trivia on them than I do, and I am the old one of the Beatle generation...)Anyway - yes I have had that - and I have called it "constipated diarrhea!" The intestines are clamping down, they let some out, and then clamp down again - I have had this before and it is murder. Just another facet of wonderful IBS!For me there was never a pattern to it - nothing I ate made a difference - happened even on very little food, and it was very frustrating...Welcome to the BB and hope you find lots of info here...
