Im 20 years old and just been diagnosed with IBS D. Compared to some of the stories on here i don't have it nearly as bad and am considered a minor sufferer.
However i suffer from Generalized Aniexty Disorder and have just been through / still going through (and will be for a while) a very stressful experience. And my symptoms last for days with little to no relief. The pariona and stress is making this 10x worse. It reduces me to tears at times as i feel unable to live my life and work etc.
I am on medication for my aniexty which has just been raised. Although i suffer daily from it anyway. The doctor Diagnosed me with IBS D with no tests. He gave me a sample kit which i have just sent back. But other than that he just linked the stress and aniexty to my symptoms.
I suffer from loose BM for days sometimes over a week on end. I have only had one very minor stomach pain and dont seem to suffer from any of the other factors in IBS i,e bloating etc. I know this may seem like the easy option for some of the suffers but for me its still very diffiicult to deal with and has rendered me housebound (unless doctors appointments) for nearly a month. I dont want to eat anything as i have read all about the food triggers. But am still drinking plenty.
The doctor prescribed me Mebeverine Hydrochloride 135mg Tablets for the loose BM. (wont affect any of my other tablets) And said i can take them regulary or just when i suffer (it would be regular with me anyway)
BUT i have read all these horrible stories about it and im now to frightened to try it for fear of making it worse!! How does it help anybody else? Especially with IBS D as i know alot of people with IBS C don't bode with it well. Does anybody have any good feedback (or bad) for this drug?
I need some relief from this condition. So any feedback will be very welcomed. Thankyou!
