Hello,my name is Jennifer and I was diagnosed with IBS 10 years ago. I am 51 and started having symptoms 10 years ago. My primary problem which I would like to know if anyone else experiences this, is pain and cramping after a bowel movement. I can go perfectly normally, and within minutes I have crampy aching pains in my abdomen. The pain feel deep inside. I can also feel tired, nauseous at times, shaky and just a sense of feeling totally off. I have been to Gastroenterologists, and have had three colonoscopies and two endoscopies, sonograms and ct scans all coming back normal. I have tried heating pads, electro units, antispasmodics, muscle relaxers, tranquilizers, motrin, advil, aleve, Immodium..all with no relief. I have missed parties, and different functions, have been on vacations where I am in pain all day.Then after getting knee surgery I was given Vicodin. In taking that I had IBS relief for the first time in10 years. No doctor would give me a ongoing prescription so I was told to go to a pain management doctor. I went, have to give a urine sample every month when I go and am presently going for MRI's and x rays for back and neck pain also. I only take one a day, and get relief for my body pains and the IBS.It even helps with diarreha. I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience, and also what your opinion is.
