IBS-D

Posted by pjss48 @pjss48, Dec 11, 2018

I have IBS with diarrhea. I’m taking med for it. Had several bowel movements already today. How do you get things done in house and go out on errands and going to Dr appointments? Driving me crazy!

@taya

Thank you for your reply. I’ve had colonoscopies which were fine. I will try Metamucil. I take Klonopin and Mirtazapine for anxiety but don’t think they are a problem. I think I will find a probiotic, maybe that will help.

Every morning upon awakening I have a dull stomachache, just an overall feeling of malaise. Usually around noon I start to feel better and continue with my regular activities. Could this just be anxiety? Anybody have this problem?

Could be what you ate the night before. Do you eat before bed or drink before bed? Sometimes that can cause stomach aches. But yes it could be stress or anxiety those things really can affect your body in a negative way

For me everything changed when I started using Fiber twice a day. Not fiber gummy's but fast absorbing powder…It has no flavor and you can use it in coffee or tea and it really works…

How can a person with IBSD have surgery on knee or hammer toes when I also have depression and anxiety disorder. I can't

Hello @pjss48

I'm not sure I understand your question regarding surgery on your knee and hammer toes. Has your doctor indicated a problem based on your history of ISBD and anxiety issues? If so, it might be helpful if you could share more information as you feel comfortable doing so.

Suggest you see a nutritionist about the Low FODMAP diet.

Has anyone successfully worked with an Integrative Medicine specialist for multiple digestive issues including IBS and GERD? A friend referred me to someone who is a PhD in integrated medicine. I think some practicing in this specialty may also be MDs or DOs. Anyway, this partiuclar person is supposed to be very competent and has had success treating IBS patients.

Hello @jackiem95,

You may notice that I moved your message to this discussion about IBS as I thought it would be beneficial to bring more people into the conversation.

You’ve asked a very pertinent question – the need to address gaps in conventional treatment for IBS, GERD and a few other digestive issues is an important priority. Integrative medicine can help people with many conditions better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life by reducing fatigue, pain and anxiety. Here’s some information from Mayo Clinic:
