Ibs for nearly 3 years

Posted , 3 users are following.

I’ve had tummy troubles since Oct 2015 I’ve been on and off to the drs as I have treatment they work then I get a different symptom. Im never 100% normal and always very aware of my stomach. I’m currently suffering really badly with acid and I’m on two antacids but not really helping. My real question is - is this normal to be constantly getting new symptoms.

sometimes I have pain in my right side bowel sometimes just under ribs in the middle of my tummy. Sometimes cramp, sometimes bloating always burping. My bowel movements are regular and normally twice a day and they’re fairly ok although when I need to go it happens quickly.

any thoughts?

    My symptoms are similar to yours. I also get lightheadedness. I don’t have any recommendations for you I’m afraid. Good luck

    IBS symptoms can change over time.  If your stools are urgent, this sounds like a change of bowel habit which is common with IBS.  IBS will come and go in response to stress or food.  Have you tried Low Fodmap or a food diary.  Are you under any stress?  Some flare ups will be mild, moderate or severe.

      That’s good to know. I say urgent not where I have to run to the toilet but I get strong feelings when I need to go. I only say urgent becase my husband always comments that I was quick! I've tried low fodmap and was supposed to go on fodmap but lost too much weight so didn’t. This was all through a nhs dietician. No stress really. How long will a flare up last?
