Besides the fatigue, I think one of the worst parts of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is the IBS. I go for a while and I am okay, then all of a sudden – wham! My IBS is acting up and I am so miserable!
I was sick on my stomach with a bug early last month and ever since then, my IBS has been flaring. It is so uncomfortable, painful, and I am always fearing I won’t make it to the bathroom in time.
We go out to eat on Saturday nights and it’s not fast food – we will always eat in a nice restaurant. But about 15 minutes after I eat, I start getting severe stomach cramps that hurt so bad it feels like labor pains!
I end up doubled over in the car, or wherever we are because the pain gets so bad. My husband can’t believe how bad it is for me sometimes. Then we are racing down the road or interstate trying to get me to a bathroom as quickly as possible! It is very frustrating for me.
I wonder if others have this problem as bad as I do. If so, please comment and tell me what has helped you.
