Hi everyone, I was told in 2008 that I have IBS. I am not 100% sure if this is what I truely have or if it is something different. All I know is that over the past year my symptoms have gotten extremely bad. I go from being constipated for a day or to, to having diarreah. Then it will be great for awhile and I have normal bowel movement (2-3 times a day) The past 2 days I am experiencing severe abdominal pain. It feels like someone is taking razor blades and tearing my insides out. The pain hasn't left me, it is worse when I eat and I am consently burping no urge to pass gas south. I have recently made a change to my diet. I have cut out most gluten products, (pasta and breads.) I eat more salads, fruits and veggies. I don't eat reds meat as it makes me sick. Is there anyone out there that have any suggestions to help me get through this or have ideas to help improve my symptoms or get rid of them. I have missed some work and I would like to know how to make things better so I can get through my day to day life normally, and pain free. All info is welcomedView Thread
