    Re: IBS pain feel like period cramps?

    Yes I get that. Alot of times my IBS symptoms feels kind of period pain related. But then when I get my period it feels like a very very bad pain of IBS esp in the lower back area and my bowels hurt so bad that it makes me think I need to go toilet and I dont really.

    But yes I know what you mean I dont know if its normal but because I am getting tested for endometriosis to hopefully rule it out then I wouldnt know if its fully IBS or not.

    Hi all, I have the same problem with period type pains. I was worried it was ovarian C but when I asked my doc how IBS could give these crampimg pains, she just said that it's ALL muscle which can cramp. I take Lansoprazol for stomach and also take Buscopan for the cramping which helps a bit. Still get acid and feeling of having a lump in chest/throat and not sure if this is what they call reflux.

    i also worry about Bowel cancer.. i get rid pain and stomach craps that have made me sick at some points. its good to see that other people have lost weight since this was one of the signs of it not being caused my IBS which sent me straight into panic mode. I guess we just have to trust the doctor.. i guess we cant all have bowel cancer

    Wow I'm so glad others can relate to what I've been going through?! I've been thinking was dying for months lol!! I had all the same symptoms and I just keep assuming the worst.. But the doctors keep saying it's IBS.. I still don't believe them, it's basically took over my whole life.

    Hello! First poster here. I know this problem, I have colitis ulcerosa and it causes alot of symptoms equal to IBS. I cannot eat gluten, onions, artificial sweeteners, etc. Still often I have pain especially in the lower bowel areas. One help I have found is a constipation medicine that is NOT based on pressure. Duphalac is one of sugar based medication that increases the natural moisture in the bowel. Works for me in an hour, in the best cases. Of course there are pains on which it does not work, but I imagine at least some of you may find help from that.

    I am not english and my language probably is really bad, and I apologise for that. Also, about the medicine, I do not have to take the whole treatment but only a large sip to help unless I really have a block in there.
