Lower abdominal and hip pain, constipation, hemorrhoids, diarrhea. History of IBS. Treatment?

Hi I m XXXXX, I started having a pain in my lower left abdomen, in between my hip bone & my uterus , I can feel the pain radiate into my back & my left hip & down my right leg just above my knee. Sometimes I would feel a slight ache go into my right hip too, then I started getting constipated & then it led to me having external hemoirrads. Then I started having diarrhea with stools in that & now I m not having bowel movements at all. I ve had problems with IBS for a several years. I m scared and worried.

Hello!
Thanks for your query.
You have relapses of IBS and you must observe some rules:
extra fibers to feed the healthy bacteria
fishy oil to reduce gut inflammation
multivitamins(zinc-because chronic diarrhea can result in zinc deficiency)
eliminate the foods to which you are allergic(cause diarrhea) like dairy,gluten,yeast,eggs.corn,soy and peanuts,
treat any bacterial or yeast infection(rifaximin 400 mg x 3 per day for 7-10 days)
take probiotics to repopulate your digestive tract with good bacteria(twice a day for 2 months)
By taking these steps and seeking out the underlying causes of IBS you can improve your health and overcome your digestive disorder
Take care of your self

Dear Sir I have irritable bowel sydrome for many years. I had a colonocopy 18 months ago and all was fine. However since the middle of December I have experienced constant constipation - feeling silk , up in the night trying to do a poo, alot of gas, - i have had an xray and it showed no blockage of the colon but bad constipation. Even with my ibs i was always very regular in the morning. I have not lost weight but am very pale in the face which alot of people comment on as i normally have a good colour. I regulary now take Duphalac which helps movement but tonight i have alot of pain after eating. I just know this is not IBS. What could it be? Kind regards

Hi, my name is Soliman Wazzan, I live in Cairo Egypt and my age is 49 years old, heigh of 192 m and my weight is 95 Kg. Since age of 22 , I suffered for almost 5 years the IBS ( Irritable Bowel Syndrome ) and then i overcame this syndrome till last year. In February 2011, I did a stool analysis and I discovered that i had 2 types of protozoa ( Giardia and Hystolica) . I took the necessary treatment and then I repeated my stool analyses and was clear of these diseases. In March 2012, I did another stool analyses and results were OK. In results, since my infection with these 2 protozoa, I don`t feel comfortable with my colon , some episodes of diarrea, constipation on and off.. lot of gases and fluctuation....but the thing that I have to underline that these symptoms become more severe when I`m facing a situation of stress, travel ( indeed associated with stress). I will be grateful if you could help me to know what is my case exactly and how to face it. Thanking you in advance for your concern and best regards Soliman

I am 32. I have IBS and normally have loose stool more than 4 times a day. For the past few days, I have felt very jittery and light headed. My stomach usually hurts before having a bowel movement but lately it has felt painful from my abdomin to my anus . The past couple of days, I have had what looks like little red flakes in my stool and my stool has been an array of colors. One day, it was bright green, then a yellowish color now a orange-red color with the red flakes.I have not eaten anything differently (no tomatoes).What is happening to my body? Is this my IBS or something more serious?

I am 16 years old female, I suffer from constipation and have been given a fiber medicine I am now having constipation through out the day and then experiencing a bad case of trapped win after my third meal in the evening. This then leads on to really bad diarrhea , I get trapped wind first and then have to really rush to the toilet. I get these symptoms at the same time everyday and it has been going on for the past week, I have tried taking immodium and other anti diarrhea medicines then gives me really bad constipation. It feels as if I should stop eating all together it is as if I am allergic to a certain food IBS is common in our family.
