I’m not sure if my gut symptoms are the same.
I daren’t eat anything containing bran – it will constipate so badly -SO badly. The same is almost true of porridge. I can have it maybe once a week and have to make sure I ‘go’ if I have to.
My main problem is a kind of alternating situation though – therefore the IBS diagnosis.
The thing is that when I get an “attack” (mainly after eating), I have tremendous pain and I can hear the valves shunting food. Its like someone has just turned the system ‘on’ and whatever is in my gut – well formed or otherwise, is gonna get out. I can hear the upper valves gurgle the liquid stuff down, and then the lower bowel has to evacuate what is there that is ok, to let the deluge behind out! God this is so gross to describe! This whole drama , can take about 3 episodes on the loo – often with sweating and extreme agony. When its all done – i’m absolutely fine again. It doesn’t happen in any particular situation or with any particular food. It just seems like the gut decides for itself when its gonna have this hissy fit. It’s terrible if I’m at someones house or out at a public loo. My dear partner Al also gets the same thing, except he is less prone to the constipation side of things.
Shall I email you to be a volunteer Diana? Or is this not what you are talking about?
