I did read stress was a major trigger and meditation, yoga, reading, and exercise was good for slowing it down, someone forgot to tell my stomach though lol! I wonder if my hypothyroidism isn't a huge culprit in this yoyo effect I have been on. I see my endocrynologist in June so I am sure she will be checking the nodules on my Thyroids closely. Since I have been on two meds for years, I wish she would just take them out before they do get cancerous. They have to be a certain size before insurance will cover. I am almost there.

Feeling a little nauseous this morning, but otherwise ok. I hope everyone gets to feeling better soon!

Have a great day. emoticon

inda and Janette: I am glad you are both feeling better.
MamaBeck: Thanks for your thoughts and I hope that marshmallow egg is not still making you sick.
I am a little better today but still not feeling great. I had no voice yesterday but it's back today. I'm still coughing and now the big D is starting. I hope that means this illness is on it's way out! LOL

Yes, I am doing really well. I am so sorry several of you are still having a lot of problems. I know when mine hit this last time I wasn't sure if it was going to stop or not. So I am so luckily that it let up and seems to be doing okay. I can still get a little constipated or a little loose, now and then, but I am not getting the horrible cramping and the D like before. And it was several yrs ago that I had previous attacks from stress. So I am hoping it will leave me a lone for a long time again.

Linda I am sorry you felt bad and hope you feel better tomorrow.

I too started feeling bad after eating one chocolate marshmallow egg. Really, just one sent me into spasms. I had to leave and go home but not for a couple of hours after watching my niece egg hunt over and over at my parents. She is 4 and a doll. Though it ended rough I thoroughly enjoyed it till then. Dealing with D, cramps and tummy upset since.

Janine hope you are feeling better as well. Sinuses can get rough if they get infected.

Janette I am so thankful you are doing so well with your IBS. That is a blessing.

Cheri I hope you feel better today as well.

Spring can be such a rough time for allergies and sinuses. Yet it is also such a beautiful time of the year! Take care everyone and spark on!

Happy Easter everyone! If you can, enjoy the sun for at least 10 minutes. It's beautiful today here in TN which is unusual for Easter. I am feeling good this morning and playing it safe so I can go outside for a few.

Have a wonderful happy day! emoticon emoticon

Today went pretty well. I have felt well. I had one incident where I thought I was going to have D but actually that went away. So happy about that.

Cheri - happy to hear that you are doing well with your IBS symptoms. But sorry that you now have your 3rd cold. Yuck!

LindaB - congrats! Happy to hear that you met a mini goal. That is a great accomplishment. Happy to hear that you have had 3 good (cramp free) days!

Janine - hope that your headache is gone and that you are doing well.

Janette - glad you are well.

Happy Easter! Remember we all have to watch for high sugar fructose and chocolate. We don't want any cramping.

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all feeling better today. I am doing fine with my IBS but I am dealing with my 3rd. cold this winter. My ears, nose, and throat have a mind of their own! I have kept up with my 10,000 steps per day but that's about it.
I saw Dr. Hyman on television the other day. I think it was Dr. Oz or The Doctors. He sounded very interesting so I am going to look him up. I think he has a new book?
Enjoy your Saturday!

I am below my mini goal of 210! woohoo, I got the books from Heather Von Vorous about eating with IBS. She has had it since she was nine. It's very intriguing. I also have researched under Dr Mark Hyman and anyone else that is willing to give free info. They all say the same thing. So I am trying to go back to very basics last three days and eat IBSSafe foods only. I am finding that some deemed safe are not safe for me. My Easter Blessing has been 3 days with no severe cramping! Some mild discomfort if I pushed the diet but that's it. I may find my own way. Out of this hole yet.

I am glad you are well Janette!

Janine, Linda, and FancyQtr ( sorry bad short term memory) I hope you all feel better!

May everyone have a wonderful Saturday.

Linda B

Hi all! I had an okay day with no D issues. Hope it stays that way. I have had some sinus/allergy problems so that is enough for me.

Darlene - good luck with the Passion Play. I truly hope that you feel better and that you are able to be part of the play on Saturday.

LindaB - great news that you are feeling better.

Thanks everyone! I had a busy week dealing with the bf's son since his mom was on another business trip. But she came home and picked him up last night. So now I have several days child free! So I am going to enjoy a nice peaceful house, sleeping in or taking a nap if and when ever I feel like it. The bf had to go to work last night around 2 am and still isn't home yet, so he is going to to come home sooner or later and just want to crash out and fall asleep in front of the TV or in bed.

I hope you all have a great week, weekend, and a very Happy Easter!

Boy, I haven't been on here for a while. Mamabeck, I'm glad that whatever you are doing is working for you.

Janette, hope your BD was great. Mine was a week before you and we went out for Mexican for lunch. Had half of it for dinner cause there was just way too much.

I have been busy with the Passion Play this week. It has been every night since Sunday and goes through Saturday. I have been having IBS problems since Saturday and had a big problem at the play Tuesday night and couldn't finish it that night. Last night I barely ate anything before the play started and took 2 Immodium, cause I did have a problem while I was waiting for my ride to come. I don't know if it is stress/nerves or if the IBS is just coming back again. Then yesterday I started getting a sore throat and headache, which isn't a surprise, I guess, since half the cast seems to have colds. I sure hope I can make it through Saturday. I guess if I have a problem it won't be any big deal, though, since other people keep yelling out my line and are probably heard more than I am anyway.

Janette hope your birthday was filled with lots of laughter, love, and sunshine!

Janine hope you have a spectacular vacation! Rest, relax, and have a blast.

I hope everyone else is feeling better today. After several really bad days I finally feel a little better. I am eating very basic IBS safe foods only, white rice, vegan peanut butter, sourdough bread, mashed potatoes and pasta. So far so good. I am taking this very slow and easy. This last round really hit me hard and I don't want a repeat. Today is good though. Lol if there is a good side to all the cramping, it's tightening my stomach up some. Not any easier than crunches are though.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Well soup caused spasms last night. This morning I woke up feeling somewhat human though so fixed white rice and plan to take it totally IBS food safe group today. All I can do is pray.

Hope everyone is having a good Easter week and feeling better and healthy.

Thanks, I wore myself out walking and cleaning today, so I hope I will be so tired I won't care whom or what is making any noise. And if not, then after the guys take off for work and school I will crawl back in bed. It's my birthday, and I am going to rest and take it easy! I might have to pick Henry up from school early since his mom is out of town again, but she comes back tomorrow evening, so hopefully she will have Henry the rest of the week until Monday afternoon. And then I can just take it easy for a few days if I want.

All my best to you all always.

Hi all, I hope you are all doing better tomorrow.

I hardly got any sleep last night even though I went to bed early. There were some neighbors out talking on their patio in to the wee morning and their voices were really loud. And I could hear a truck's signal beeping that it was backing up some where close by too. And the bf and the dogs were being kept up by it all too, so it was a night of tossing and turning for all but Henry that slept right through it all.

So I was really tired this morning and just wanted to stay in bed or crawl back in bed, but I had a lot to do to day, so I just pushed on with my day.

Linda....I only had to force myself to stay awake a couple of times. I was just too busy today to not keep moving and getting things accomplished. It feels good, but I am ready for the vacation next week for sure!

I felt a lot better today until the afternoon. The the cramping and sitting on the toilet started. It was a rough afternoon. I am trying to watch what I eat this evening.

LindaB - I certainly hope you are feeling better. You should not have to live like this.

Janine - I hope that you were able to do something today. I know bad weather can keep us from doing a lot.

Janette - glad that you are feeling well.

Well it's Tuesday! After a horrible Sunday into Monday morning, I slept all of Monday away until this morning. Still running like crazy, but the severe cramps are calmer thankfully. Of course I hadn't eaten since Sunday lunch so, fixed sourdough toast, scrambled egg, and almond milk. Hopefully that settles things a little. Any suggestions for a mild IBS safe dinner?

Try walking around in your house, or running in place, or doing a hobby where you need your hands like knitting, or some thing like that. Or maybe try taking a nap if you are really tired as maybe your body needs the rest?

That alarm went off this morning and I thought it was a bad dream! I hope to not stay up too late tonight so I can feel more rested tomorrow. I did get out for a walk after lunch today. That felt good. Got to get those 10,000s in!

Thanks for the support everyone! I am trying to get more focused again. I hope it helps soon because this bloating is causing my clothes to be very tight. I plan to get moving tomorrow for a while to exercise. I know this will help too.

Thanks every one. Congrats on the weight loss! Never any worries here Janine! We all have those days. I got in a lot of laundry, other house work, and walking, and such today. IBS is still doing good.

Linda glad you had a great day as well. Gotta love days like this!

Janine you do not sound whiny. Hang in there and remember, get in what you can, even if it's during commercials or getting up to walk to get something add a couple of twists. It's small steps but it adds up quickly on pedometer and pays off at end of the week. Plus you feel better because you did do something. Commit to walk in place during commercials as a start. Knees high, twist, or step wide. You will feel it. emoticon

I am feeling pretty well today. I had a pretty relaxing day. I got in some exercise, lots of water, etc.

Cheri - glad to hear that you have lost 2 pounds. I gained 4 pounds in the past couple of months and cannot seem to lose it.

Janette - sorry about the mix up with the PT. Many times the office staff just doesn't do what they say they are going to do. It is so aggravating.

Janine - sorry to hear that you are bloated. It happens to me quite often as well.

LindaB - glad that you are having good weather. Yes, I have also started some spring cleaning. It's good to get around to things that we haven't been able to do for awhile.

Ugh.....I am definitely bloated today. It is a struggle to feel like I do right now. I need to get some me time so I can get in more exercise. Hopefully soon this will all settle down and I will get a walk in or some strength training. I miss the gym! Sorry to whine everyone.

WTG Cheri! That is a great. Hope you have a great weekend.

Janette it's amazing how PT offices can be so confused. If everything is in the same computer system you would think it would eliminate a lot of these problems but it doesn't. Fingers are crossed and so are my ankles!

Having a good morning and cleaning house while I feel up to it. Love springtime in Tennessee!

emoticon Good morning everyone. It's a beautiful Saturday here in south Texas. I have been getting at least 10,000 steps in daily and I lost 2 lbs. this week! I am still 5 lbs. away from where I was before I started gaining some of my weight back but it is definitely a start.
Have a great weekend!

I hope everyone is doing fine tonight! I am doing well with the IBS still. There was some mix up with my PT. They originally had my referral to go some where about an hr or more away from where I live. But that same PT also had an ofc closer to where I lived. I called the Pt ofc that I was suppose to go to and asked them if it would be okay to go to their closer ofc instead and they said fine, that they would take care of the paper work with the ins co to switch it. I then later had my consult visit and they wanted me to come back several times a week, but they needed to get my drs ofc to sign the last page of a report and fax it back to them so they could work it out with the ins co to get me as a continuing patient. They asked me to call my drs ofc and let them know what was going on, so I did that the same day I had my consult appt. But some one at my drs ofc either before that or after that, didn't know that I had already had a consult appt and they put in a request with the ins co to have my consult appt switched to a different PT co by where I live. So the very next day after my consult appt I received a referral for a consult appt at this new ofc by where I lived. So I was confused as why they let me go to one company one day and then the next day was trying to send me to a new company instead of approving me to keep going to the first company. So I spent all day today on the phone with the ins co, my drs ofc, and the PT ofc that I went to on Wed. And so far all I got straightened out is that if I don't go to this new Pt ofc then the ins co with pay for the consult I had on Wed. But if I go to the new Pt ofc, they will stick me with the bill for the consult I had on Wed. So now I am still waiting for them to decide if they will let me have more visits and where they will send me for the other treatments. But it sounds like if they decide to let me continue with treatments that I will probably be able to keep going where I went Wed. So keep your fingers crossed for me ladies, as I don't really trust that they all are on the same page now still, but I am hoping that they will get there if they are not.

Janine I hope you make it to round two. Sounds like the kind of interviews that MTA had when they hired. It's very nerve racking and stressful. Try some deep breathing techniques before going in and maybe that will help keep the tummy quiet. 16,000 steps WTG!

Linda so glad you had a great lunch with your friend.

Janette sounds like you have your IBS well in control. Hope your muscles are following close behind.

The doctor called this morning and the MRI was normal. I explained the new meds made me sick so went back on Librax even though it didn't help much. Dr wants to see me in 3 months.
I am definitely switching to the new Center in October. I understand and am thankful everything is normal but he will not give me anything to help me through the acute cramping times. He wants me to go to the ER. I explained my insurance will not pay for an ER visit unless it's life or death and you are admitted to the hospital. I wish they had to go through an episode for a month. Bet they would help then!

I had a good day and saw my Mom and Dad. My Niece turned 18. She is so shy. We came home and had dinner and then my day ended. It was beautiful though up to that point!
Took the day off from exercises.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! We are going to be in the 80s tomorrow woohoo!

The interview went okay. One of the women on the panel was not overly friendly and it threw me. I should know something next week if I made it to round 2. Thankfully my stomach did not act up during the interview, but tonight it is not overly kind to me. I hope it passes quickly.

I have felt so much better today. I woke up and didn't eat breakfast because I was afraid it might trigger an episode. But I met my friend for lunch and shopping and didn't have a problem.

Janine - you got in a lot of steps. Great. I hope the interview went well. I know that stress can trigger an episode for me. Hope it didn't happen to you.

Linda sorry you had such a reaction to the chocolate milk. Sometimes it's so hard to admit we can't eat what we want.

Janine I am glad you got your steps in. I barely reach 3000 but I get so little nutrition in, I really am not pushing that as I am loosing it fast enough anyway..

Janette glad you are still feeling well and stretches are helping.

I had my MRI today and it lasted for 2 long hours. They scan from my liver down to my pelvis so we shall see. The tech told me that MRIs normally don't show much in the lower stomach though. I am hopeful that as empty as I am, it will work. Slept last two days mostly. Just tired a lot but managing. I have figured out the hyoscyamine was making me feel even worse so stopped it and went back on Librax even if it doesn't help a whole lot. It's better than nothing.
I tried a banana today and well it is now a trigger food for me. Weird though since, I was able to eat it six months ago.. Getting 5 fruits and veggies is hard right now. potatoes are easy on my stomach but burning out fast.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday! Take Care.

I had a good day. Very successful in exercise, food choices...but, I drank chocolate milk after dinner. Wow, that hit me like a ton of bricks. Between IBS and my lactose intolerance was bad. I have spent quite some tome running back and forth to the bathroom. Hope to feel better tomorrow since I am meeting a friend for lunch. I will just have to watch what I eat.

Janine - glad to hear that you are not bloated today. I cannot say the same thing since my IBS flareup.

Janette - I hope that all of the procedures aid you.

LindaB - hope you are feeling well.

I didn't overeat today so I hope to not be bloated tomorrow. Got my 10,000 steps early!

Did a lot of stretching exercise today for my back and side. My IBS is doing really good still.

Hi everyone! So glad to hear you got the referral Linda, too bad it is so far off, but glad you got it. I am with you, I say you should go and talk to them no matter how you are feeling then.

They move my PT consult up to this morning instead of tomorrow morning. So I got poked and prodded, twisted and bent, and my spine aligned like a chiro. Supposedly my thoracic part of my spine is not moving like it should and it is making my muscle work harder and tiring them out. So they should me some stretching exercises to do several times a day to try to help with it. They want me to come several times a week for more treatments. But I guess Medi-Cal and my ins just approved for the consult. So now I have to wait and see if they will okay me to go back. They said they probably will but it might take a few weeks to work through the red tape for it.

He hit several tender spots and lots of tight hard knots as he was checking me out and aligning my spine. And some of those spots are still tender now, but he loosened me up so that I was able to bend and twist further after his treatment. So I really hope they approve of my going back as I think it will really help.
Janette

I wish I had more time for even those exercises. I have been getting my 10,000 steps at work thankfully and have even started using my prep to walk around the block for 10-15 minutes. That has been helpful. When I was working out regularly, I was doing some pretty intense weight training. When I start back I will have to basically start over. I will get back that soon, most likely after Relay is over.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Janine I use my house as a gym. My split level is my stair step, and calf raises, the counter top is my support for the hip flexors and knee lifts, side lifts, and back lists of legs. I pace in place on commercials, or, up and down the hallway, not to mention my jogs to the special room, lol!
The Russian twist with a hand weight or a ball is good for your waist also.

I may get two to five minutes at a time only, but throughout the day or night it is adding up and helping. I hope this helps you a little with some ideals. Good luck!

I miss the gym so much! I just haven't had time to fit it into my schedule lately and I hate wasting the money for the membership. The guilt of not getting in a gym workout is bad enough.

I started the day at the gym. I had a good workout. I then went to the bank and back home. I did some of my housecleaning. So tired this evening.

Linda B - it is great that you have an appointment for the Vanderbilt Hospital and specifically the center. I really hope that you get better before the appointment. But if you don't, it is good that you can push up the appointment.

Thank you everyone for all the advice and answers it has been very helpful. I can say without hesitation I am doing good if I can even get 1000 calories a day in right now due to the severity of the cramping and diahrhea every meal. Last night and this morning has been especially bad.

However I had two doctor appts and it hit me at one of them. They saw how much I have lost, how miserable I am and have set up a referral in October with the Digestive Disease and Disorder Center at the Vanderbilt Hospital. If I get better I can cancel and if I don't, I can move it up sooner. I do believe I will keep it regardless due to the nature of the situation and the fact that I did have a colon polyp when I was 26 years old. At least I feel like something will happen I just have to wait and hang in there. To me that was my ray of hope for the day!

I'm so glad to here everyone is feeling better today. Nothing is worse than feeling bad on a pretty day. I am so thankful for this team and for all of you! You have been a wonderful group and a good release for me as no one I know has this or even understands it. I am counting my blessings for your friendships and help and sometimes just listening. Thank you so much!

Linda......overeating for me can cause a problem as well. Yet sometimes I feel like I overeat because my stomach is bothering me and I am trying to cause a reaction. Sadly that almost never works in my favor.

The probiotics are okay. I really do think I need to up the dosage. I can tell a difference when I don't take it though.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I am feeling okay however, I really overate today. It hasn't caused IBS. I hope it doesn't. Many times overeating will cause a big problem. I did drink plenty of water and took a long walk. I guess all of it helped.

LindaB - I also haven't had the bloody mucous. I do hope that you find out the problem. I do hope that you find out the results of the MRI soon.

Janette - glad that you are feeling better. I agree. Many doctors and others feel that we are hysterical females with our issues. Little do they know, we HATE having IBS. We don't want this condition.

Islayy - I haven't used Align. Happy to know that it works for you.

Janine - how is the probiotic working for you?

So sorry you are going through this! And I know what you mean, the first two times I went through really bad ibs-mixed with nausea and even throwing up from stress many, many years ago I was on insurance. It happened yrs a part I had different jobs and insurance each time, and I was bounced from dr to specialist, to specialist with no clear answers other than them trying to say it was just my own doing from stress. My mom got the same treatment, and so did my sister. They don't really want to even come out and say IBS, it is always that we are just hysterical females, or hypochondriacs.

I'd say see what the MRI shows, and if the still can't find anything keep looking for a dr that seems to believe you and that seems to really want to pin point what is going on.
All my best to you always.
Janette

Thank you Janine and Janette. This is my 2nd Gastroenterologist and I am so frustrated. This just sounds and acts more like an IBD than IBS to me. They have run biopsies, blood work, various other tests and all are normal. Maybe the MRI will disclose something. It's really frustrating when you feel so bad and run down and the doctors act like you are being a drama queen. At least that's how I feel he thinks. It only happens once in a blue moon so maybe its an ulcer who knows.

Even if I went to a third doctor I would have to wait a while for the insurance to cover repeat tests. However, I do have a third option. Its a center for Digestive Diseases and Disorders that I found out about. I just wish I had learned about them sooner.

Ok, on the happier side of things its a cool day but the sun is shining which is wonderful to see and the trees are starting to bud out. Warmth is not far away thankfully! I hope you guys have a wonderful and happy day!

Again, thanks for replying. It did help a lot.

I agree. Mucous is one thing, but bloody? I would have that checked out if it were me!

I am sorry, but I don't think bloody mucous is normal! I have never had that! Rarely I get some mucous, but never blood!

Glad you figured it out Janette!

After two wonderful days, I had an attack this morning again. This may be a bit too personal but when you guys have the bad D spells do you ever pass bloody mucous as well? Everything I read says that I should seek immediate treatment, but the doctors keep telling me that is normal for IBSD. All my tests keep showing normal. I am getting an MRI Thursday. He doesn't feel a colonoscopy repeat from last year is necessary. I am at a loss. Sorry but I don't know who else to ask. I am the only one in my family that has this illness.

Hi everyone, I have been doing really well with the IBS. I think I figured out the allergy problem too. The BF picked me up some generic Tylenol with "cool" taste for my side pain. I didn't think to look at what that "Cool" taste was before, but broke out in hives on my back last night and sinus problems this weekend too. So I was trying to think of what was new to me and it was just milk that I added to my diet and these pills. Milk can give me mucus, but I only had 2 glasses of it one day. And it never has done anything like this before. So I checked the "Cool" out and turns out it has Sulfur in it and I am allergic to Sulfur and Sulfa medicines, so that is probably what happened. So I have stopped it to and went back to my IB pills for now.

I hope everyone is doing okay.

You are the first person who has reported any results with Align, good or bad! (If others did, I missed it) Thanks for the feedback. I take a probiotic every day, but could probably increase the dosage.
