    Dont know if i have IBS but i know those stomach cramps can be extremely painful at times. Also you are likely to do some damage in the toilet. Just have to deal with it, eventually it goes, only a few more days methinks

    try buscopan for the cramps,if it goes on much longer go see ur doc,times of stress bring it on for some people so have nice bath and massage x

    I suffer from IBS and quite often wake up in the middle of the night - and fail to get back to sleep with the pain. There doesn't seem to be any food in particular that sets it off. The doctor prescribed me Spasmonal superliving.co.uk/pha…tml

    I don't seem to suffer from the frequent visits to the toilet as it sounds your having, but I hope you get yourself sorted soon.

    Yeh thanks will try and get to a doctor, the last time i saw a doctor about was about 15 years ago and this was after the doctor told me i have ibs, alot of people in my family have this

    I have IBS (diagnosed). Luckily mine doesn't give me pains or constipation; im pretty much the opposite. Peppermint oil helps some people but it didnt work for me; now the taste of peppermint just makes me feel sick.

    dear oh dear ....... not a very clever thing to say.

    I take Spasmonal as well. It works after a fashion, but take about 30 minutes to start to have an effect. But as my attacks can last up to an hour it's something.

    apparently this is a serious thread on a shopping forum before seeing the dr:thumbsup:

    i have diagnosed IBS which started after a very bad bout of gastroenteritis (hope i spelt that right!) i find that if i eat fatty foods it really sets it off, it hasn't been to bad just lately though because i've been pretty chilled out, if i'm stressing about something i get it really bad with terrible cramps, bloating and literally running to the loo.
    OP i'd have a day of work, and try and relax, have a nice soak in the bath or something because stress is the main factor for a lot of people.
