Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I was diagnosed with IBS three weeks ago. I have seen my Doctor twice. It is very difficult in my Health Centre to have the same doctor. I have had a very bad time with IBS and looking for some help to cope with this.
I saw my doctor on the second occasion. She thought I was taking Luxido too many times and to reduce it to one every two days. I was also prescribed Mebervine to take 20 minutes before meals.
I do suffer from stress. The problem I am having is very loose stools like diarrhoea and smell really bad despite limiting the Luxido. After an episode like this and I have been on the toilet for a long time. I am absolutely exhausted and have to go to bed. I read somewhere that the bowel can pass a small stool and then very loose stools and then a hard stool. I think it is called overloading. I wonder if anyone can help. I am not sure if it is the Mebervine causing the problem or stress. Also I do not know what foods to eat as I have always had constipation which was ok as I knew to have high fibre food. If this is a different kind of IBS I am not sure what I should eat and what would aggravate the situation. I know stress is one cause but I would be grateful if some one could help with this problem and has anyone had this type of IBS. I have to see my doctor in a week's time and I have to have a colonoscopy. I also suffer from Barrett,s Oesophagitis and acid reflux and I am on Omeprazole.
I would be grateful for any help please
