    i'm on 1 or 2 BM's a day at the moment, and my life is kinda resetting from severe obstipation, shivers shakey and chills sounds familiar, "glad" i'm not the only one
    my brain is all over the place feeling new stuff and so on....
    No problem. The shakes and chills happen immediately after a bad episode. I've even had to stand in a hot shower for five minutes to warm up afterwards. I used to naively think everybody had 3 bms a day. On IBS days I will have more like 6+. It can be a hassle for sure.

    Hi Spaz !

    yeah i was so cold yesterday evening, only a shower would help to regain some bodywarmth,

    i'm learning a lot fast the couple of days.

    also i'm not that good in balance with my body, now i've been officially diagnosed, i'm kinda full on aware from all the symptoms, i've waken up from body wintersleep, so everything is new and fresh

    for me it's urgency, coupled with leakage in the back and not always feeling when the leakage happens, at times it can be all out uncontrollable, most often it's bad urgency

    As a fellow IBS sufferer I find all the different stories quite interesting, so I'll add my own in the hop that it might help someone.

    My IBS started in my teenage years and peaked in my mid twenties before settling down to the point where it is today. Although I still have 2-4 BMs per day on a good day, and I do still occasionally have BM accidents it's much better than it was.The turning point for me was finding out my trigger foods, through long, sometimes painful and occasionally embarrassing experience. The list of things that I completely avoid has slowly expanded and now includes, in no particular order:
    Spicy food (particularly anything with chili or ground pepper), Potato chips (aka crisps), Coffee, fried and fatty food
    And the list of food I still eat but only in strict moderation includes:
    Chocolate, alcohol and dairy products
    I found these through elimination diets and constant experimentation. The elimination diet thing for me was not straightforward because even when I restrict myself to the most boring and safe diets I will still get some intermittent IBS symptoms.

    The other main factor for me is stress, which I don't think is a trigger but seems to amplify any IBS issues I'm having.

    I'm trying to make this post positive because although I still have IBS it definitely improved through time and hard work. Also, I should mention that the "hard work" part was occasionally very enjoyable, for instance, after a decade of completely avoiding all cheese I found that I can stomach it in limited quantities without any ill effects.

    I developed severe IBS-mix during a trip to India. My infectious disease Doctor treated me with several different antibiotics. After a couple of months with no change in symptoms, I was sent to an IBS specialist. He told me he has seen many cases like mine and it would rectify itself over the next 7-10 years. No explanation, just medications to help cope with cramping, pain, and bloating. The first year was the roughest. I missed a lot of work because I could not leave the house and sit in traffic. Luckily, I was able to find a position that allowed me to work from home.

    My symptoms have improved dramatically over the last 7 years. Not totally but enough to get out without fear on messing myself. Interesting note is that it seemed to trigger urinary problems. I was a bedwetter growing up, but had a fairly good dry spell for 15 years. I am not sure if the two are related, but the timing leads me to believe they are.

    In addition to the symptoms everyone else posted, I would produce a lot of saliva when my IBS was at its worse.

    Sorry if I am rambling. This is my first post.

    Actually stress is one of the most common triggers for IBS dear

    i'm kinda glad i've started this topic, and be able to give room for discussion on IBS in the widest form,
    All the experiences say and tell me more than hours of article reading,

    i've got some sort of stabilisation, the first week, and a half, the volume was kinda huge, looks like my body is getting somewhat used to Metamucil,
    now the volume is less big, but still just as easy passable, perhaps this has to do with the fact, i've run out of Metamucill 3 days ago and had to use 1 bag instead of 3,
    my GP has given me a sort of "trial" pack, for 20 days, now i've got stock for the whole month...

    anyway, i'm slowly getting my head straight about the IBS stuff, and also me having constant brainstorms over a lot of stuff, i'm really focused on other far more important headtopics like IBS, and prepping everyday.
    Also my Brain has kinda woken up from wintersleep, so the connection between brains and body is full on... ( possibly i'm repeating myself, sorry had a rough week)
