Lately I've been having weird digestive stuff going on. My stomach begins shaking/vibrating and becomes very painful, and then the vibrating kind of spreads out from there. My arms and legs start shaking too, then I lose some muscle control and it becomes hard to walk. Once it was so bad that I lost control of my eye muscles and throat and I had to go to the hospital. Sometimes this is accompanied by diarrhea, but not always. It's kind of a full-body thing but it always starts with my stomach, which is why I think it could be IBS. I went to a gastroenterologist, but he just told me to eat more fiber, which obviously didn't make a difference. Has this happened to anyone else before? PS- I have POTS, but my doctor doesn't think it's related to that. I know patients with POTS often have IBS, though.View Thread
