Constipation help

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all had miss carriage then anti biotics that have just done who knows what to bowels and gut, am so scared to eat as I can't bear the pain and cramps have never experienced this level of pain from IBS and have had it all my 40 years.

Pain to push then the pain after as it cramps sad

Dr just says take buscopann but I won't take something that makes vision blurry.

Have got movicil to take daily to help I hope. Just locked in a vicious circle plus muscles r all hurting from surgery am sooo anxious which dosent help tummy and bowels.

Start hypnotherapy tomorrow for IBS and SSRI to calm the anxiety but what do they do give u cramps and abdominal pain so round we go again !

Any advice would be great 😀

    Sorry about your miscarriage, this is all you need to have gut issues. Have never heard of anyone having blurred vision from taking buscopan, I TAKE IT when neededit helps me a lot. Give it a go.

    What is buscopan?  My doctor doesn't know what is wrong with me.  I am 64 had some constipation issues for years and once in a while explosive diahhrea.  Well last October I had diahhrea for 10 days and finally hospital I was so weak.  I had colonoscopy, upper gi, endoscopy, 2 catscans and no answers.  Went along ok for about a month and then got very stressed out about finances and weather ( I get anxiety attacks). So the other day in anticipation of a large snowstorm (I live alone) I got explosive diahrea attack and bleeding. It stopped and now constipation and abdominal pains in waves.  Just so frustrating.  Now doctor wants more tests and I just don't know what to do.
