Hi people can you help? Ooph what a day I've had! Has anyone or can anyone explain why my IBS went totally nuts today? I don't think I've been in this much pain for ages. I made the mistake of taking something called SUDAFED this morning on an empty stomach first thing today to find myself in the doctors at midday. I had never had such a vile reaction to it and I've taken it before. What happens is this: (and I think the ladies will understand this more). Each month IBS kicks off at a certain TIME! Ok, so because my IBS is bad it then also kicks off really bad FACIAL pain that I normally treat with this Sudafed stuff. Why did I do this today and on an empty stomach? I was in pain and felt rubbish! How do I stop this happening? I ended up at the doctors in agony, something I have got used to. My stomach felt like a football, with PINS in it! The pain made me cry! I am not the greatest with pain but normally shift the pain by walking. Does this sound like ibs flare up to you? Is it the medication (I did discover it had ibuprofen in it) or am I not coping? What would you do? Do I see a different doctor? How do I sort? I'm really sorry for the length of post and all the questions! Thanks 😐
