Hello,I'm happy to have found this site and would like to share my story with you. After suffering with pain and fluctuating constipation/diarrea for a few years I found out only by accident that I was diagnosed with IBS (type A according to my symptoms) when needing my charts to enter the millitary. I unfortunately was unable to to proceed and now work as a fixed operations manager in the automotive industry. When I found out I spoke with my family doctor and was put on a medication for about a year and a half that worked in the beginning and then faded. I then got tired of the pain and approached my doc again and was placed on Librax and have been on it for over a year. About a month ago the pain had started again and was so bad one day two weeks ago that I thought I was going to have to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. I was embarrassed by having to be driven home by my shuttle driver with me stretched out in the passenger seat moaning, with my vacation starting the next day I decided to go to the er at midnight only to be diluted with dilodid and told that bloodwork had come back clear. Being as high as a kite I got out of bed and left as they said there was nothing more they could do. Librax has now gone by the wayside, I take three of them a day with again no relief! I've got another appointment with the same specialist that performed both a scope from the top and bottom and didn't even inform me or had my own doctor inform me of my condition on Aug 16,2010.I don't know where to turn, I'm in fear of job problems, I'm forever fearful of travel and from one day to the next I have no idea what to eat as what bothers me one day will not the next. I've no idea what to do, or what to ask my doctor that I have yet to ask. I'm certain that another scope will take place which I can cope with if I knew something would be found. I spent 6 of ten days off on the edge of disaster and have another vacation coming in a months time involving a fair distance of travel with uncertainty on how to cope........ Suggetions In any or all of my concerns would be greatly Appreciated!!!!!!! And !!!!Sincerely FLUSHED,Mr. Tully

I've picked some up, what method do you use in regards to how often and when you take it? It says one to three times a day. Are you type "A" as well? :)

I should note as well, I could only find drinkable aloe Vera gel mad by Aloex and bought it in mint as I've heard peppermint is good for gas.....
