Ibs symptoms is it normal feeling this way ?

Postby Andrew arnold on Tue Jul 31, 2018 3:24 pm

I have always been a nervous sort of person that worries about every little thing going, had a delicate stomach since childhood. We are off on holiday to italy tomorrow by plane & as normal for the past 3 or 4 weeks I have started with what has now been diagnosed yesterday as IBS. Horrid stomach cramps, feeling of dread that I won't make it on holiday & letting all the family & grandkids down, general fear of every little thing going wrong, it happens every time I am stressed, neck & shoulder cramps, tight aching cramping stomach, lower back pain etc etc etc, been given buscopan & took 2 but no real comfort yet, also on omeprazole 20mg 1.25 mgs of bisoprolol for AF, just need reassuring by other people going through this, really feel in a bad way, all help greatly appreciated.
Thanks.......Andrew.

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for your post and welcome to the talkhealth forums.

We are sorry to hear about the problems you are having. IBS can be a very difficult condition to manage, but if your GP hasn't advised you against going on your holiday then it should be fine. IBS can be managed and we actually have a support programme coming out shortly for IBS, which you can find here: http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/psp/ibs.php

In the meantime, do enjoy your holiday, and let us know how you get on.

Thanks,
The talkhealth Team

Thank you very much for your kind reply, I will definitely be going on holiday, it's not an option to cancel it however anxious I am feeling right now, I will let you know how it was for sure.
Andrew.
