Had a bad day yesterday with the dreaded Diarrhea,started ok in the morning,then went again 2 hrs later then really bad about 6.00pm,cramping into the late evening,then woken up this morning at 4.30 and very loose again,dont know whats caused it as ive just eaten my usual foods of wholemeal toast,Prawn sandwich and salmon,new potatoes ,carrots and peas.Its so depressing,I already have a doctors app today to get some more medication to last me over my Safari holiday next week,really scared now about going.The only pain ive had is a sharp shooting pain into my left groin that only lasted a couple of seconds,would appreciate anyones  thoughts.Im not a happy bunny.

    Hi Yvonne,

    just a suggestion, it ranges bells with me when you mentioned you are going on holiday. Lately when I am going on holiday I am ill beforehand, normally settles when I am away. I think there is a stress element, even although I am really looking forward to my trip. The knock on effect is that I am scared to go away now. I am going to doc Friday for advice, but at present I take small dose of amitriptyline, a muscle relaxant, at night which helps me as pain and urgent bowel movements seem to occur at night

    good luck, and hope your trip goes well 

    Mary.

      It seems to work, as when I have pain I can't sleep, and hence feel even worse! At present I am having a bath before bed, some buscopan if necessary and amitriptyline. I have used amitriptyline, in bigger doses,before for anxiety. My doctor  agreed that it should help me sleep better, happy to give anything a try!

    Just a small suggestion to add to these posts.  Why don't you take antiseptic wipes and some small plastic bags like doggie bags, so if you do ge caught short whilst out on safari, you can be clean and comfortable.  I've never been on a safari, but I imagine there must be times when you need a "bush toilet".  But hopefully by then your tummy will have settled back.  I do hope you enjoy your trip.

      Yes Felinia I'm going to do that but hope I won't need them,as to the Imodium,I took one full tablet about 8.00am this morning  and have had a fairly normal bowel movement about 11.15 so no I dont seem to get constipated.My tummy feels a bit odd sometimes but no pain .Whenever I get diahreea though I feel a bit sickly .Thanks for all your suggestions I really do appreciate them.

      Yes Susan probably,my doc said to open the capsule and empty half out which I've been doing but probably not enough ,so that's why I took the whole one this morning.Im still taking the Fybogel and eating fruit which helps I think as well.

    Taking Immodium frequently is not good for the bowel, is this connected to Diverticulitis? When my attack was done my bowels were still a wreck from the meds I was on so my doc recommended a probiotic tablet each day to put friendly bacteria into my system and it took a few days but it worked and have been fine since then, that was in January. I also used it after having pancreaitis to get back to normal.
