    Re: Bowel problems

    It's good news about the stool tests and bloods. I hope your scan today gives you some reassurance re OC. Your GP is being very thorough/

    I think anxiety is the driving force re IBS and weight loss. I've lost weight at the moment despite eating normally and have IBS-c. I put it down to prolonged stress over many months.

    Let us know how today goes and good luck. Having the scan/CA125 bloods done will reassure you re OC.

    Thank you Pulisa. Tbh OC never crossed my mind in all this. Think doc is ticking all the boxes before she takes things further.

    Iíll update with any news in case anyone else is going through similar.

    I think testing for OC is quite standard with bowel issues-just to cover the GP really. I wouldn't see any significance in this, Humly. I've had these tests as well.

    Glad to hear the tests went well so far but I understand your continued anxiety since Iím going through some of the same. My pain is also on the left side. And I have been losing weight like crazy for the past 2 months. I hope that part is just anxiety too.

    Just had a few ďnormalĒ days and I started to settle down, then last night again had the cramps and diarrhoea. Itís worrying me that itís sometimes happening in the middle of the night as well ie 2 am. Is this normal for ibs? I think I read somewhere that if it wakes you from sleep then itís serious.

    For what it's worth, Humly, I went through a long phase of bad cramps and diarrhoea in the middle of the night on a weekly basis. I don't get it so often now, but it still happens maybe once or twice a year. I haven't dropped dead yet.

    Re: Bowel problems

    Were you diagnosed with anything Blueiris or did it just go away on its own?

    I just donít understand whatís happening. I had breakfast this morning. All fine. Had lunch about 2 pm and within 40 mins or so I was getting cramps and wind then it passed? I thought I was going to have to pull over to the side of the road on the way home 😳. Whatís all that about?

    Itís getting to the stage that I donít want to eat in case it sets me off.

    No diagnosis, nope. I'm phobic about doctors and eventually it went away on its own. Word to the wise, though, stopping eating is the absolute worst thing you can do.
