Re: Getting very distressed

I sooo appreciate all the advice and I'd love to be able to share what I'm eating daily, I guess my biggest problem, aside from the D, is the Un Godly, labor pain, cramping that goes on for hours before I even go blast....I could live with D, if I didn't have all that miserable cramping.

The D/cramping episodes started on July 1, I don't remember what I ate Friday, but Saturday, I had Half a bluberry sour dough bagel, from Panera, they are IBS safe, I take the citrucel caplets, 4 in the am, and 4 pm, I drink at least 4 bottle waters a day along with peppermint tea, that is the only two things I drink, since I had such a severe episode Friday, into Saturday, I had sourdough pretzels and applesauce, (natural) for lunch, and for dinner I had a half a sub, from subway, honey/oat bread, turkey, pickles, shredded carrots and seedless cucumbers on it, along with lays baked potatoe chips, regular. Up until recently I had taken 3 librax a day I "gradually" (over a period of a year) lowered the dosage since the 3 a day did not help and Heather's diet seemed to be working and I was on 20mg prozac and birth control pills. About 5 months ago, I quit the BCPillls and about a month ago I stopped the prozac. Since December of last year my IBS had been doing pretty well, I quit taking the librax 3x a day and just take it at bedtime, since 90% of my episodes are at bedtime. I try not to eat 2 hrs before bed, but I do drink peppermint tea just before going to bed. I thought I had remembered a couple years ago, before heather's diet and this board, I ate whatever, I knew salads killed me, but I started taking the prozac and asked the drug rep when he came in the office if it had any indications for IBS, he said no, they can't market it for that, but a lot of people that take it had some definite relief, I think I quit it because I was getting heavy? Don't remember. Sorry. Saturday I had a 11:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. cramping, with the heating pad and no rest until I could finally go to the bathroom, it "usually" starts out normal and a little firm, but always ends up like water, after about the 4th BM. After that episode, in the am I had my fiber, half a bagel (Panera) bagels are all made from sour dough and are IBS safe, (I don't get the ones with a lot of fat in them). I had rice and pasta noodles, with spray butter, which is not really spray butter, no fat, no dairy, stuff, and a slice of sour dough bread. D again during the night. Yesterday, I had a banana for breakfast, sourdough pretzel, lunch and an apple, dinner was baked tostitos with soy cheese, and baked beans. I never over eat, I can't. With these latest episodes I have started back to 2 librax a day, and I am very hesitant with the imodium because I'm afraid if I take it the cramping with prolong because I can't get the BM out, since the cramping lasts so long, and I usually have to go at least twice before it's full blown D. Any other suggestions would be so grateful!!! What is the trick with imodium, i'm afriad I'll have the cramping longer if I'm Constipated................ I forgot to mention, I've taken Prevacid for years, so I don't think that is a problem, Nexium/prilosec gave me diarrhea and the only fiber I used to take was Fibercon,,,,,,,,,not good!!!! Sorry friends, I also have noticed in the past week that 2 or 3 times my BM"S have had that awful sulfa smell, but have not eatin any gassy veggies, what causes that smell..........
