    Fingers crossed. I had terrible pain LHS pain night sweats my stools were like chalk so had ct scan which showed divicular disease. Scan also showed my colon had deflated which must have been causing terrible pain as my colon wasnt doing its job properly. Colonoscopy showed colon back to normal so specialist thinks it was either impacted poo not allowing colon to get rid of waste or flare which had narrowed entry. Before diagnosis it was thought l had pancreatic cancer because blockage had caused all symptoms of pancreas not working and enzymes in blood

      I am glad it wasn't cancer. I hope it all sorts itself out for you. I usually go to the toilet about 3 times in the early morning I don't usually have bad stomach ache just left side pain so I put it down to the fybergel. I am seeing specialist on Friday so will have a word with him

    Hi Susan

    I too wake up with tummy pains, go a couple of times and am OK with no further action.  What you describe is actually normal for me, and has been for the last 9 months.  In fact even before, I often got tummy pains which told me I needed the loo.  Your specialist may advise otherwise.

    Hi Susan,yes that's quite normal for me even if I take Imodium ,I've just received my new Fiber supplement called Heathers Tummy Fiber as the Fybogel seemed to have stopped working , will see how I go on with that.

      Imodium constipates me for about 4 days so I try not to take it. Fybergel make me feel bloated and gives me pain in my stomach. I am suffering today because I changed back from fybergel to mabevarine So fingers crossed I feel better tomorrow

    Sorry to hear that you are poorly Susan, this disease makes you want to pull your hair out, it is so frustrating trying to avoid setting it off and failing yet again.  I hope that you feel better soon.
