I was wondering if anyone experiences these extreme symptoms?
I've only had IBS for the past couple years (my grandma has always had it). It doesn't happen very often, maybe once a month. It usually starts shortly after eating, within an hour. A couple times, including just now, I've had it this severe where I almost called an ambulance thinking I was dying.
I feel fine and then suddenly my stomach hurts and I have cramps. At first there is constipation but the pain gets so bad I go sit on the toilet, hoping something will come out. My stomach usually makes a lot of ridiculous noises at this time. I start to feel EXTREMELY hot. Burning up! So I've literally stripped naked to try to cool down but it doesn't work. I get dizzy and start to pass out. Sound is muffled. I get tingly and numb all over. I'm EXTREMELY weak at this time, I can't really stand. I'm basically on the verge of passing out. I alternate between wanting to go to the bathroom (nothing's coming out) and wanting to throw up (I hadn't thrown up in over 20 years until just now). I threw up, which alleviated the dizziness and overheating problems immediately. I still feel sick though. Shortly after that, the diarrhea starts. It ends up turning into liquid. This all happens in a very short amount of time, maybe 20 minutes. Sometimes I will need to revisit the bathroom every few minutes for hours before it has all passed through me.
Does anyone experience anything like this? Is there something I can do for this?
Hello :) This is my first time to the site . I'm thankful I found this group and hope to have others who can relate and share info.I'd never had problems before with urinary and/or bowels until I had a total hysterectomy in Sept 2017. Has anyone else found that if one flares up so does the other??? Miserable in MS
