Chrone's? IBD? IBS?

Posted by @judibrab16 in Digestive Health, Dec 6, 2011

Please help. I've always thought I had IBS. But it can be so severe with pain so bad I lose consciousness and awake to drained bowels, extreme sweats, and not knowing where I am. This has been going on intermittently for many years. I live with it.
I have developed arthritis. Can this be associated with Chrone's disease?
I have also thrown up green bile.
I have pain in my upper abdomen right now, with bloating, distention, and no sign of an active bowel movement. It just sits and hurts.
I have taken Dulcolax and Gas-ex. Nothing helps.
Anyone else out there with similar experiences? Please share.

Call and make an appointment NOW!! There is no reason for you to have to live in such misery. They will take care of you. Take a breath, trust, and do it. The time has come and you're on your way to better health.

Thank you, but making that call is not so easy. I am one of the millions with no insurance. I went to the hospital the last time my IBS was this bad. There were no answers for me except meds that I could not afford. In my 12 hour hospital stay, I incurred a $6,000 bill that I will pay on for many years. To be seen again, I would have to file bankruptcy. But again, thank you for replying.

I've had severe abdomen pain with uncontrollable nausea for over 5 yrs now and they still can't figure out what's wrong with me! With me they said the blood tests ruled out IBD and Cronh's. I have severe pain everyday, but mine starts in my lower stomach area and always goes to the left side. If you get any answers please post them as I am desperate for answers. Good Luck

I'm sorry for your illness. I too, am really struggling. Such awful pain. I have not slept or hardly eaten in 2 days. Mine as well is in the lower stomach/upper abdomen. Bloating, burning, cramping. No otc meds help.
I don't have insurance, so relief and diagnosis won't come from a doctor.
I guess I am relying on people who have "been there". I recently tried some "Ultimate Flora" 80 billion probiotics. -the result; more gas-more pain.
Good Luck to you too. If I find ANYTHING I will let you know.

stop all fluids for 48 hours and rest in bed for this entire period. There was a boy of 18 years how had IBS for last 4-5 years he got relief by this 3 years back and is still fine. He got relief from mouth ulcers and leg pains as well after this. Do make sure that u drink 1 glass of water 1 hour before lunch and dinner. Restrict ur water and other fluid intake to 2-3 glasses in 24 hours after giving up fluid for 48 hours.

You sound like me before gluten-free. Painful trapped gas. Stop eating gluten and you will be amazed how fast you recover. Try just one g-f meal and if no bloating or trapped gas, voila, you have your answer.

Thank you. I will try this. I feel better than I did when I wrote of my ailments, but I know it will be back with a vengeance if I do nothing about it . I appreciate everyone's advice and concern.

A diet with high intake of red meat or poultry might be counter-indicated for Crohn's disease.
