I keep going back and forth between constipation and hurting tummy with lots of pooping & colon spazzing. It was similar to when I was first diagnosed. Figures, when I want to start training for a 5K again. This is totally ruining the beginning of spring.

I feel your pain. Well not right now thankfully but it sucks when you can't get it to stop and you need it to.

So, i made a shake today with: soy milk, peanut butter, dried dates, some cocoa and a little maple syrup. Now, my colon is on attack mode. What?
Also, does anyone else take fiber supplements? Not to be graphic, but when I first had IBS, it was a combo of constipation and diarrhea. I'd go 3-4 days without movement and then blame! Nowadays, it's mostly the big D when I have an "attack," as I call it. But I am still taking the fiber. Don't know if I still need it.

Mine's picky on the soymilk too. It could also be the dates though.

I am thinking dates. I didn't take my fiber two nights ago, but took it late last night. The running, which jiggled my digestive system around, plus the fiber-licious dates, probably is doing its havoc.

I take soluble fiber every day. I put it in my morning coffee. Without it, I have no consistent control over my IBS, no matter what I eat or what exercises I do. I have cut back to once a day and the minimum dose that works for me. I also try to switch up the type of soluble fiber I use. I don't want a dependent colon - just relief!

BAD MORNING. I guess I shouldn't be surprised - my tummy was gurgly yesterday. Possible culprits include:
Fresh pineapple
AFR Caesar Chavez dressing
New kind of coffee

I hope it was the coffee, because it wasn't good so I won't drink it again, but I clearly love the other 2 things.

Appifanie, it could be the pineapple. I have severe stomach issues when I consume it, even if it's mixed in as juice with other things.

Why is it that when I take a day off from exercising, aka giving my intestines a break from jolting around, it hurts worse than ever?

And why is it when I make delicious dinners to take to work, it hurts so bad after eating them?? UGH.

I got an IBS medication for the pain/bloat. Bentyl, or the generic Dicyclomine. I am SUPER excited!

And after I feel GREAT for weeks, my IBS decides to be stupid today, my birthday. OF ALL DAYS. Well, I should never eat popcorn, I guess.

Took Dicyclomine for the first time on my birthday. Holy cow, talk about being loopy! It made me nuts for about 1.5 hours then it was fine. Driving home was a trip, though. And I felt so parched, like I was a sponge squeezed out.
It worked and did its job, but I don't want to become dependent on it.

Let's talk sneak attacks. I'm almost in the midst of one.

Ever feel AMAZING, like awesome for the day. Maybe a little bloat here and there but it's a normal day. So, you go about your routine & then BOOM. I begin heating up, my stomach feels like it will implode. (usually I'm at work at this point.) It goes from zero to 100 in 30 seconds and I feel like death.

Anyone else have this? What are your sneak attacks like?

YES! I get all hot and nauseated and weak. The worst. It usually happens at a store (usually wal-mart or the post exchange - I have no idea why)
