How do you deal with IBS? Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Might have it.
Asked by Anna Macedonio 2 years ago.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common intestinal condition characterized by abdominal pain and cramps; changes in bowel movements (diarrhea, constipation, or both); gassiness; bloating; nausea; and other symptoms. There is no cure for IBS. Much about the condition remains unknown or poorly understood; however, dietary changes, drugs, and psychological treatment are often able to eliminate or substantially reduce its symptoms. Treatment Dietary changes, sometimes supplemented by drugs or psychotherapy, are considered the key to successful treatment. The following approach, offered by Dalton and Drossman, is typical of the advice found in the medical literature on IBS. The authors tie their approach to the severity of the patient's symptoms: Mild symptoms Dalton and Drossman recommend a low-fat, high-fiber diet. Problem-causing substances such as lactose, caffeine, beans, cabbage, cucumbers, broccoli, fatty foods, alcohol, and medications should be identified and avoided. Bran or 15–25 grams a day of an over-the-counter psyllium laxative (Metamucil or Fiberall) may also help both constipation and diarrhea. The patient can still have milk or milk products if lactose intolerance is not a problem. People with irregular bowel habits—particularly constipated patients—may be helped by establishing set times for meals and bathroom visits. Moderate symptoms The advice given by Dalton and Drossman in mild cases applies here as well. They also suggest that patients keep a diary of symptoms for two or three weeks, covering daily activities including meals, and emotional responses to events. The doctor can then review the diary with the patient to identify possible problem areas. Although a high-fiber diet remains the standard treatment for constipated patients, such laxatives as lactulose (Chronulac) or sorbitol may be prescribed. Loperamide (Imodium) and cholestyramine (Questran) are suggested for diarrhea. Abdominal pain after meals can be reduced by taking such antispasmodic drugs as hyoscyamine (Anaspaz, Cystospaz, or Levsin) or dicyclomine (Bemote, Bentyl, or Di-Spaz) before eating. Dalton and Drossman also suggest psychological counseling or behavioral therapy for some patients to reduce anxiety and to learn to cope with the pain and other symptoms of IBS. Relaxation therapy, hypnosis, biofeedback, and cognitive-behavioral therapy are examples of behavioral therapy. Severe symptoms When IBS produces constant pain that interferes with everyday life, antidepressant drugs can help by blocking pain transmission from the nervous system. Dalton and Drossman also underscore the importance of an ongoing and supportive doctor-patient relationship. Answered by Pamila Keihl 2 years ago.
I got it when I was in the military. Talk about stress. Mostly I make sure I get an adequate amount of fiber everyday. It helps regulate the bowel, tending to ease spasms. I know when I do not get an adequate amount, I start having trouble, same thing if I am under a lot of stress. If there is a way of regulating your particular stress, go for it. Exercise is good. Yoga, music, meditation, I have even heard people saying getting an aquarium relaxes them. If you find something that works for you, grab on with both hands. None of it worked all that well for me. Exercise seems to be the best for prevention, not so good when you are doubled over in pain. Know what sets you off, and when you are "tender" (I use this term to mean when I am not exactly in pain, but if I do the wrong thing I will be). Mostly I can eat, drink anything. But if I am in that tender state, I know coffee is a no go and grease will be coming to get me later. Again the most important thing is fiber. I usually count grams, like most people count calories. I try to get 20g, but more is better. Breakfast cereal is good for this, can get up to 5-10 g a bowl and was always taster to me than the metamucil stuff the doctor advised. If you get very little fiber now, it is better ease it up over a couple of days, rather than 0-20 in one day. Gas hurts. Also you may experience flatulence, but people that care about you shouldn't want you in pain. I haven't tried the meds that was advised above. It is for the constipation kind (which I have), from what I have heard. Not heard of one for the diarrhea kind. I have taken some other stuff when it would get real bad, dicyclomine I think, which worked pretty well, but never wanted to depend on it. Good luck! Answered by Seymour Gentzler 2 years ago.
I have needed to manage IBS all my existence. It may also be very depressing from time to time for the reason that you cross among no bowel motion and diarrea. I even have alot of belly disorders, ulcers gastritis, and reflux. I cannot say for certain that it does not have some thing to do with getting pregnant a physician might need to let you know if it does. All I can say is that I have two lovely children and treated IBS for the duration of the pregnancies however I would not alternate them for some thing on this planet. No subject what I went via it used to be valued at it so do not permit it give up you from getting pregnant, you'll be able to be completely satisfied you probably did!!

Zelnorm taken on an empty stomach, a half an hour before you eat or drink if it's IBS with constipation. Otherwise, you have to be very selective about eating things that cause gas, and try to avoid milk products. There are diets that help, but other than Pepto-whatever it is, I can't think of any medications that really do anything. Answered by Ute Helsley 2 years ago.
well---stress and diet have a lot to do with it. probably the number one thing to avoid in my humble opinion is stress. i know this sounds silly, but even the stress of worrying about having an attack of IBS can bring about an attack of IBS! it's like a bad joke. diet can affect the frequency and severity of IBS as well. are you lactose intolerant? my wife thought she had IBS for years but come to find out she is lactose intolerant. she takes medication for that now and the IBS is history. if working on stress and diet don't totally do away with IBS for you, you just need to learn to live with it. medicine can work--but the side effects are a bear to live with. not as big a bear as IBS, but still a bear. good luck, kiddo!
