Hi, I've been reading this board for a while and decided it's about time I piped up and said something. I've had IBS for about ten years now, mainly IBS-C although I never get really bad with C, I just seem to have bad pain sometimes and really, really sensitive intestines. Like today, for example, I was just 'aware' of them all day, sort of mild discomfort and the occasional spasm...eurgh. Don't know what's causing it - does anyone have any suggestions for how to calm an angry intestine? I've been taking Lepicol psyllium fibre for the C and that was going great for the last two weeks, and then I got the discomfort again today. Any ideas? Well, thanks very much for listening - I've read some lovely messages of support on this BB and would just like to add my own to anyone struggling with this bloomin' illness. We know how hard it is, us people here, and we understand. thanks for listening.
