hi im new here im a 21 year old male with ibs d for a year now, ive tried to change my diet but nothing seems to help i have random attacks sometimes once a week or every day on occasion. either way my stomach is constantly moving twitching, spasms, i have slight gas at times which causes uncomfortable belching which has to be forced out to feel relief, when i have D it is after i eat and starts with a pain in the uper left hand side of my stomach (just below my ribs) i feel great once it is over but the pain during is intense. watery usually browish tan or slightly yellowish but darker, a regular BM is not so regular though, very odd shaped or colored or textured always, i haveint had a normal bm in a while does anyone have similar symptoms with twitching or belching, i have been to the doc a year ago CAT scan and the tube down throt also checked for gallbladder everthing normal. im going to try calcium, also concerned about weight loss. thank you.

Good luck in your search for a cure or some help. Try anything and everything. What works for some doesn't for another. I was on the calcium for awhile and it worked great. then it stopped working me me. Don't know why. Guess cause the stress level in my life is way more than before.

Yep, I get the pain under the left rib, all the time!! I try to manage it by drinking alot of Fennel tea. It's supposively really good for gas and bloating. It's no miracle for sure. I still get those pains but they're not as intense anymore. Try it! Also, Anise tea is great, too. I'm sorry that other people have to experience this but I'm also glad to know I'm not the only one that has this!!I hope you get to feeling better soon!!Michelle

Hi there! My doctor gave me Bentyl for the abdominal pain (that was a few years ago), and right now I am currently on Levbid. So far, I think the Bentyl worked better.For me, it never matters what I eat, even my gastroenterologist told me it wouldn't make much difference what I ate, altho I DO avoid dairy. My sister has colitis and has very bad pain, she takes Lomotil. Not sure if you would want to try any of these, but I just thought that I'd put that out there. It seems to help her. I have very good things about the calcium!! I would try it! And, for me, Metamucil (I take it once a day) helps control my D somewhat.Renee
