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?
