I'm hoping someone might have a possible solution for me on this one.
About a month ago I had a really traumatic day with a family crisis which turned out to be not so critical but the day had already taken it's toll on me. I had diahorrea for a week (which I had never had with IBS before) and was given mebeverine which cleared that up after 2 tablets so I stopped taking them.
Ever since then I have been having constipation of sorts - I'm going to the loo every couple of days but only a very minimal amount so I;m not going anywhere near normal.
Works really busy so food wise I've started chopping and taking several pieces of fruit to work with me so that when I'm snacking I'm eating good stuff but the biggest problem I have is that I'm still eating the same amount as I normally do but it's not going anywhere and it's really getting me down now.
I've had some pains (and a heck of a lot of wind) in the last couple of days and so am taking an extra fibre supplement but can anyone tell me if me taking Normacol granules for a few days to clear out and start afresh would be worthwhile?
I have to say its a relief in itself to find this forum as whilst my hubby is very sympathetic and can obviously see the bloating there is nothing he can do to help and my parents worry too much for me to tell them whats going on, I have a mate who I can tell but she has a new baby so I don't want to burden her.
I've heard that the main trouble with IBS is that the more you worry about it the worse it gets and the worse it gets the more you worry and so on which is exactly what seems to be happening to me at the minute, when I went to the gym the other day the bloating disappeared and the pain subsided but the next morning it re-appeared so I was worrying about it again - I can't live at the gym!
Maybe I just need to wait until my holiday in 3 weeks to get it sorted again!
