FMS+IBS

Postby migrembe » Sat Dec 28, 2013 1:36 pm

After two days of Christmas food my body has given up. The IBS has kicked in and goes from one end of the spectrum to the other and back and that in turn has turned up the pain. The problem is nobody can see so nobody really understands even though i know my children love me. Back to gentle eating now and see how long it takes to recover :(

Migrembe....you are not alone with the way you feel.

Most of us do the same thing to ourselves. We just can't seem to help eating the cookies and chocolates etc at Christmas.
I certainly have done my share and I am now waiting for the symptoms of IBS to sink in.

Hopefully the discomfort will not be too bad and it will be over soon.

Gave myself one day to eat anything I wanted as I knew even that would trigger some problems and then straight back to being careful so I hope it settles down quickly for you :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

I only had two days of eating and certainly not overeating just a few of those Chrismassy things that we all like. It's a little better - kinda - thanks for all your support :grouphug:

My IBS has been gatecrashing the festivities as well :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: The calming down I had experienced whilst having acupuncture has worn off now, so things like the bloating, cramps etc were making their presence felt again :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: Add in the bit of extra stuff I've eaten and there is only one inevitable outcome really :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: Not even Buscopan has helped, such is the vengeance it has returned with :scream-1: :scream-1: :scream-1: :scream-1: :scream-1:

migrembe....LOL Isn't it amazing how weight can change so drastically with either Fibro or IBS.

I have realized since Christmas festivities (scoffing down, LOL) have began that vegetables seem to be one of the worse things to set of pain in my tummy. I have had IBS and Lactose intolerance for years, over 25, before fibro. and am now really noticing what sets things off.

Things like ceaser salad can pass through me within 15 minutes of sitting down and eating. Raw veggies the same. Garlic, look out! Bread, not only pain but if I start eating it, it is like I am addicted, I can't stop.

I am in need of a good laxative, LOL Even though I have eaten about 2lbs of milk chocolate. Oh how we think chocolate will take away the pain, more pain, more choccy. Obviously it doesn't work...proof of the empty choccy tins and me still in pain.

Well I am going to make a cup of tea and down 2 Dulcolax tablets.

I found this really interesting, I have overindulged too and feel bloated although I've not had trouble 'going'

I also can't eat garlic, onion is another no no, a lot of veg gives me tum ache, which is hard as I'm a veggie :crazy: I love stodge, bread cake etc.

Since my stroke in July I have put on a stone, lack of exercise, meds and comfort eating. I must take myself in hand in the New Year xx

I have found too much of anything causes me problems one way or the other. Although not been tested for IBS the GP says that's what it sounds like and with FMS its one of those things, not very helpful. :crazy:
