Hi ladies, Jenn here..I am 51 years old and in full Perimenopause. I was diagnosed with IBS about 10 years ago. I was wondering if anyone has had the experience with their IBS worsening around Peri? My biggest complaint is the gas and bloating, and after a BM (sorry to be gross) I get weird crampy cramps around my pelvic area and sometimes lower back. I was told by my Gastro doc that it is colon spasms and a disconnect between my brain and gut. Two Gastro docs gave me antispasmodics, they are terrible!..I have tried everything to stop or help this problem, but it's there everyday and it is affecting my quality of life. Had to go to a pain management doctor and I am taking one Vicodin when the cramps are really bad. I have had two endoscopies and three colonoscopies, pelvic sono, CT scan, blood work all normal..anyone every hear of this or experience it..need some help
