Read lots of posts from people who have much relief from various meds (ie levsin, bentyl, remeron etc) and I have tried these but found no relief from my symptoms. So maybe I'm telling my doctor wrong and need to "revise" myself so I'm looking for information from you all ...When you say you are in pain or you have cramping - is it constant or is it your "signal" that you need to find a washroom NOW and then as soon as you eliminate, it's done?See, my pain is the latter kind. It "notifies" me that I need to find a washroom and then as soon as I have a BM or pass gas .. it's gone. For those of you who have this acute, spontaneous pain that, thankfully, is shortlived, what med do you use? how long did you have to take it before you saw relief? Have you tapered off in useage or are you planning on it?
