    Hi sarahpainfree I only started with Ibs since Ive had fibro I dont take anything for it.  The only thing I take is imodium if it is Im going out any where as I find this helps. You could have a chat to your gp see if they can give you something. Take care

      When we are upset it plays havoc with our bowels, I have the same problem. Hope you can get the work issues sorted as its not going to help you with the Ibs or fibro. Im disgusted how they are treating you and being with you. They should be helping you and supporting you. Please get in touch with the CAB as they can help you, they will know your rights where works concerned. They are best to advise you or a solicitor who deals in employment issues. Hope the Ibs soon eases for you its not nice to have, I had it all last week so you have my every sympathy.

    Hi,I'm the other way completely......due to pain meds it stops me going( sorry if I'm to graphic).i do take a precribed med for it but still have tummy pains and am unable to 'go'!!...eat a very well balanced diet to,lots of fruit and veg.

    im still new to the diagnosis and find myself having pains I never knew you could get pain,tight feeling in hands,wrists painful.shoulders,tips of shoulders,neck,back,leg and boy knee pain.and so so tired.i can sleep for 2/4 hours a night then fall asleep at 7 ish and sleep another 3 hours,despite trying so hard I still fall asleep during the day.

    I wish I knew if what I'm suffering is due to fybromyalgia....sorry to moan peeps xx
