Hello all!I am new here and seek any advice, experiences and possible ease of mind. I was diagnosed with IBS about 11 years ago. I am 40 now. When I first had it, it lasted a good 3-4 months. I experienced diarrhea, constipation, ribbon like stools, mucus on stools, cramping, bloating, twisting pains, and a colic feeling in my colon, usually in one or two areas. I was very scared back then as this just came out of know where. I thought I had this and that and when I finally was diagnosed I learned to deal with it. I had to stop looking at my stools for anxiety reasons but eventually everything eased. Since then I had not had a long term episode like in the beginning. I would have attacks here and there for about 1-3 days at the most and was usually caused by a few foods or stress. This was pretty constant though not on a daily basis. Now after 11 years a few weeks back one day I felt a "colicky" constant feeling in my lower right colon. At this time and a few days before I had alot of diarrhea. Two weeks prior I was on antibiotics for a fractured tooth and a week later started another antibiotic for a sinus infection in which I only took the first 3 pills. I was taking probiotics also while doing this. The next day I had a mucusy stool and the next day started taking Metamucil and have ever since. After a few days I had about 4 days where everything was doing great. Now it is doing the same things "usually" at the lower right section of my colon and have stools containing mucus daily. The first stool of the day almost always does not contain mucus and is not diarrhea or constipation. After that in can very. I have checked out other symptoms of other ailments and just cannot really find anything related. I am out of work right now and have too much time to dwell, and know this isn't good. None of my pain is overwhelming at all but noticeable and not comforting.Is this another "long term" IBS attack or do I have something else I need to worry about? Many of the symptoms I experience now I did have in the first "long term" attack but do not remember so much and has me really worried! I do not have dark or tarry stools or blood. I guess I just need peace of mind and support from my fellow IBS sufferers!Thanks for any feed back!
