Severe Attacks and Fainting
      01/08/04 09:33 AM

I am a new poster, but have been lurking for several months. I want to thank everyone here, especially Heather, for finally giving me answers I never found in any doctor's office. And the support you all give each other is astounding. One question I have is about severe attacks. I had one this week and nearly fainted from the non-stop D. This has happened a couple of times before, and I am so tired of the gastro and other doctors just saying I'm hyperventilating or panicking, nothing more. But I didn't feel panicked; in fact, I felt pretty calm. I know I'm having an IBS attack, I know it will eventually pass. I take the Levsin and/or Librax as prescribed. But when it gets really bad, I have actually fainted onto the bathroom floor. I don't know if it is the severe cramping pain or dehydration, but I can't believe these drs. who constantly pooh-pooh (no pun intended!) me that it's just an hysterical reaction and all in my head. Has anyone else experienced this and do you feel it is a physical reaction to the severe D?
