I have a severe issues with my IBS and it's nearly got me in tears. I'm going all the time. I have no issues with constipation. Not a single one. I've tried Metamuccil and the like, yogurts (various ones), fiber supplements (various), water, Pepto Bismol (suggested by doc). Nothing is working. I've tried dietary changes. Nothing is slowing me down. I go between 6-12 times a day, sometimes more. And what's worse is that it isn't always in great quantity and that upsets me too because I feel like I have to go so very badly and that I'm going to burst if I don't so I go back to the bathroom quick and then I go and there's hardly anything to get rid of. And I'm so very often sore on the bum because of it. I have no relief. I talked to a doctor about a prescription of some sort and he said the one that works best for it was taken off the market due to heart problems being reported. So I'm still up the crick with no paddle or hope in sight. It's just affecting me badly. I have so many health problems to begin with that this is compounding it and affecting my depression cuz I'm constantly parionoid I smell awful no matter if I'm showering a lot or not and I'm scared to go out for fear I smell (my sister tells me I worry bout it too much and I never smell). This is just affecting me so very badly and I can't seem to live a normal life hardly anymore and I just can't stand this. If anyone has ANY suggestions on way to relieve going ALL the time, please offer them. Or if you just wanna support one another (me support you/you support me), please message me. I can use more friends who understand this IBS hell I'm in. Today is worse then normal. It's just so bad today. I just wanna cry.

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009. He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him. BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
