I'm 15 years old and i was diagnosed with IBS about six months ago. Lately its just been getting worse and worse. Its come to the point where i HATE going to school when only last year i loved to go! Today i just had another 'episode' at school, and i try to be secretive about the condition, but you know how it is... I've changed my eating habits- eating more fruit, drinking lots of water and avoiding my 'trigger' foods- but none of the changes seem to help. I'm a dancer and the only time i feel relief is when im dancing....... I'm tired of feeling sick all the time and giving up my social life because im to petrified to leave my house because of the fear to have another episode... So, what are some ways that help you calm your symptoms and episodes ?? Answered by Bobbye Eanni 2 years ago.
I too have IBS and know how embarrassing it can be to have an "episode". Has your doctor given you an anti-spasmotic like Librax or Pamine Forte? these drugs will help your colon not got into spasms and cause horrific pain. Try to lessen your stress. This can be a trigger. Maybe have a private meeting with all of your teachers and let them know or get a statement from your doctor and ask them to be discrete about it. It will get better. Most people who suffer IBS will go through spells of attacks. What I do is take anti-spasmotics and increase my fiber intake, avoid trigger foods, get plenty of rest and eat simple stuff like jello, soups(not dairy based-those are usually triggers), rice, etc...Good luck(and keep on dancing :o) Answered by Vernell Boyden 2 years ago.

number one, try to rule out if you are lactose intolerant. try going a week without any milk or dairy products and see if that helps. number two, you may have IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. with that there will be certain foods and certain stress levels that may cause you to have to go to the bathroom frequently and at a moments notice. nothing horible you just have to watch out and be prepared anytime things get stressful. number three, you could have crohn's or colitis. both very painful bowel diseases. most often you start bleeding with them. since you didn't state that you had blood while you had a bowel movement I will quickly sort of rule those out. number four, have them check you for H. pylorus bacteria in your mouth and blood. it is a nasty bacteria that can cause ulcers and make you have horrible diarrhea and smelly flatulence. it sounds to me like lactose intolerance or some sort of IBS. it could possibly be the H. pylorus bacteria. but ask them about all of the testing options before they make you do a colonoscopy. those are horrible, trust me. ooooh, and if they do make you have a colonoscopy, ask for the powdered form of the stimulant instead of the watered form. the powdered form of the laxative you can put in like Powerade and Gatorade so that it doesn't taste awful! good luck, my prayers are with you!

Below is a link I found about IBS. I highly doubt it to be an ulcer, and the ovarian cysts are nothing to worry about. The cysts usually go away in time, I get it too, and its most likely that you were just ovulating. I think youre doctor is right that you have IBS. You should read up about the symptoms. And about the period thing, the website also stated: "women are roughly three times more likely than men to suffer from it. Women with IBS seem to have more symptoms during their menstrual periods, suggesting that reproductive hormones may play a role in this disorder." If you think there is a misdiagnosis or you think that you might have an ulcer, talk to your doctor about it. Im sure that he/she will help you ease your worries by doing some tests.

I have had the same problems for years. I finally had an colonoscopy and they discovered that I had diverticia in my colon and IBS. My doctor said that the best cure was a big glass of Metamucil every morning, first thing. I have been doing this now for 7 years and the symptoms have been greatly alleviated. I still have some problems, but not nearly to the extent that they used to be. The only thing that I still have to watch is my diet. I can't eat foods with a lot of cream, and I have to stay away from certain alcoholic beverages such as tequila, and I can't eat a lot of hot spicy foods, or I will suffer.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome and intimacy?
Hi Generally gets stomach cramps when she's stressed, before exams, interviews and so on... Now when she is intimate with a guy, will she get stress and stomach cramps - and then be put off from being intimate? Basically will the intimacy give her cramps/stress, even after foreplay and so on.

Hi, I have IBS, GERD, spastic colon, and I only have 2/3 of a colon after surgery, so in other words this area is sort of my expertise. The IBS does not exactly give you a choice when it will kick in. Usually the stomach cramps associated with stress come for a brief period then fade. If the cramping and symptoms are that bad for her, she really should see a doctor. There are tons of medicines out there she can benefit from. I personally like Pamine Forte to stop the cramping and spasms. Now, as for the sex, I would really not even consider this an option for ignoring intimacy. My husband and I (married 9 years) have never had a problem with this interuppting my enjoyment of sex or other activities. I would say just take it slow and easy and according to her pace.

This is a worisome problem. About 50% of women who have irritable bowel syndrome have been abused (physically or emotionally) at sometime in their life. I am suspicious that this person may have been sexually abused at some point and needs to see a psychologist/psychiatrist/counselor in addition to a gastroenterologist.

If this is her first time and she's exceptionally anxious about it (in other words, has ANY doubts) then she might get stressed enough to not want to have sex. Chances are however, that she's not going to have an attack DURING the act...she will most likely have an attack prior (in the afternoon, say) to the activity -- if she has one at all.
