After 6 months of having severe stomach cramps among other symptoms, i have been told by the consultant I have IBS, What i was wondering was Do you have it? do you know someone who does? What do you do to manage it and ease the pain? I have been prescribed fybogel and peppermint oil tablets, does any one have experience of using these?
Hi Leona, I to suffer with IBS, have done for many years. Funnily enough I've had an attack this morning!! I take Senna tablets if I bung up to help, also I find a hot water bottle wrapped in a towel (so it's not too hot) on your stomach does help a little. But I'm afraid it's a case of trail and error finding out what food triggers attacks and taking them out of your diet. I keep a note book that I add to when I get an attack so I know what I had eaten to set it off. If you ever want to talk please just private message me.
