I know I'm not the only one who suffers, I read these all the time (usually while on the toilet to give me some hope that I'm not alone) it's 4:20am and I've yet to sleep tonight. I have worked all day the. Babysat tonight. Outta the blue I got the all too familiar rumble down under that produces sheer panic, hot/cold sweats, cramps, back pain you name it I get it. It feels a million times worse if I'm out, in work, in someone else's house or in the middle if nowhere. I like my own toilet, my mum and brother are so used to it now. Anyway tonight in particular.....started new job been there 2weeks now love love love it finally got my dream job and this is gonna wreck it. I've been eating v little due to nerves and trying to limit what may exit if the worst happens. I take loperamide when I get that flare up feeling, been doing do on/off past 2weeks. Tonight after eating v v little today and taking 2 loperamide about 1pm the ibs-D hit me like a ton of bricks. Why didn't the loperamide work? I thought if anything I'd be constipated because of all the loperamide I'd taken this past 2weeks. It follows a very specific pattern for me, I'd love to know if anyone else's is the same please please please tell me this is "normal" for people like us. I run to the toilet a few times starting with hard bowel movement, normal one, wee bit looser, diarrhea then BOOM!! Water, mucus, blood and anything else left over it seems I can actually feel the major pains cooking away with the last movement like it's been the one give it the pain. There's cramps etc after but nothing like the pains before. Then I pass out in bed totally knackered. This is ruining my life. I can just go to work and that's it, and even that's stressing me out. I'm gonna end alone just me and my toilet....no friends, no life!!!!!
