I am so sorry to hear that you are going through that. I don't know if i can be of any help but I do know that you are not alone!I've had IBS D for a very long time. About 5 yrs ago I used to get just what you are describing. It lasted about 3 yrs then stopped (the attacks averaged about once a week). (The IBS D didn't stop though)- just the horrible heat, sweats, and passing out.I don't know what brought it on or why it went away??? I do know that it started right after my second child was born and also when I started getting the flu shot. Don't know if there is any connection to either????I got the flu shot for 3 yrs in a row, then I thought that maybe that was doing it to me-so I stopped getting the flu shot and the heat, sweats, and passing out stopped!Don't know if the flu shot was doing something to my immune system or not??Drs. claim it is not a live vaccine, so it shouldn't cause any of those problems??SO whether it was IBS related,hormone related, or immune system related- who knows!!! Never could find a dr. who could figure it out!Hopefully, it will pass for you too......I pray it does.......Tired

Hi,I'm sorry to hear about your attack. I think if you're pregnant you should tell your doc, you don't want to take any chances.I have passed out with D attacks, but only a few times. Those few attacks were soooo very bad, it felt like I was dying! I can actually only think of 2 occasions. Other than that, I do tend to get very close to passing out (but haven't because I go lie down before it gets too far) sometimes when I get really hungry. I also have low bloodpressure so that doesn't help either.Good luck with the pregnancy!Take care,Edith

I have had two spells ust like you describe since my second child was born. It is so scary. The only similar occurrence was that I hadn't eaten anything those two days. I had to be gone a lot at those times and thought eating would mess up my stomach. Good luck

I too pass out with some severe episodes of my IBS. It is so scary to have these attacks. Sorry that you have this also. But you are not alone. I get very hot and sweat so bad that my clothes are wet. The pain in my stomach is horrible. The cramps are severe and I find that using an ice pack on my stomach helps with the heat and the pain. My doctor has been no help with this, he just acts like it is no big deal and says some people do this. I didn't believe him until I saw your post. I keep this a secret from most people I know because they act like this is so Weird! It is so frustrating.
