    Re: bowel spasms and ibs

    I have been diagnosed with ibs but mine mainly consists of a recurring pain/irritation along my left lower abdomen and at different times I have spasms in my right lower abdomen. No rhyme or reason to when I get them - they come randomly during different time periods - but I think they might be linked to when I eat rish foods (often when on vacation or around the Holidays).

    Re: bowel spasms and ibs

    I have IBS but don't really get the spasms that's usually associated with IBS so the anti spasmodics don't work. I just get almost daily pain low down on the right side of my abdomen and across it at times as well, really painful and I feel sick all the time.

    I do feel worse after a bowel movemen though which is weird as with IBS after a bowel movement it's supposed to make you feel better.

    Don't worry though, IBS is different for everyone. Buy some colpermin capsules from Boots or Superdrug (about £5.50) and take 3 a day, I know they work great for people who get the spasms with IBS

    I get lower abdo pain on the right, almost at the side of my leg, and on my left sometmes. My lower abdo feels so heavy like there is a brick in it sometimes and my bottom feels painful and full of wind, not nice at all.
