thought I'd share grin

gurgly. crampy and ver loose. Have to be careful where and when I break wind.

probably stress related as have been a bit tense this week.

How shall I bung them up a bit?

mine too. Shall we ask for a 'keep out TMI' (too much irritation) topic?

BitOfFun Tue 29-Sep-09 17:36:00

I'll see your irritable bowel and raise you my hostile vagina grin

Or something.

BecauseImWorthIt Tue 29-Sep-09 17:37:17

Peppermint tea to calm/relax your gut.

Probiotics - acidophilus.

Drink lots of water - not cold, but warm/hot, again to relax the gut.

I see your IBS, your hostile vagina and raise you to a Bartholin's cyst ...

Aloe vera. Did wonders for mine.

EccentricaGallumbits Tue 29-Sep-09 17:41:19

I'll see you your Bartholin's cyst (ouch!) and your hostile vaginasand raise you an inflamed and bleeding hemmorhoid!and DH is moaning about the amount of bog roll I've used over the last couple of days.

BecauseImWorthIt Tue 29-Sep-09 17:41:50

Hah! Now you're talking, EG!

BecauseImWorthIt Tue 29-Sep-09 17:42:16

All I need is another dose of thrush and I think that's a full house!

EccentricaGallumbits Tue 29-Sep-09 17:43:23

where does one find acidophilus?

BecauseImWorthIt Tue 29-Sep-09 17:44:02

Good healthfood shop. Go to one where you can buy it from the fridge.

weegiemum Tue 29-Sep-09 17:44:14

Hah! I see your bleeding haemmoroid and raise you my thrush at the same time as a very delayed and clotty period .....


BitOfFun Tue 29-Sep-09 17:44:41

Healthfood shop/vitamin aisle

BecauseImWorthIt Tue 29-Sep-09 17:45:53

Throw in some cystitis as well then, weegiemum - no point doing things by half!

EccentricaGallumbits Tue 29-Sep-09 17:46:42

eeew weegie. WTF are you doing with all that stuff?

EccentricaGallumbits Tue 29-Sep-09 17:49:45

have jus seeped with wind sad

need some cure that waitrose sells? anything? (has to be waitrose as only shop open now)

fruitshootsandheaves Tue 29-Sep-09 17:50:41


BecauseImWorthIt Tue 29-Sep-09 17:52:34

Do they have a pharmacy? Colpermin could help, otherwise peppermint tea is really helpful.

Are you constipated? Could always try getting a Colon Cleanser - I think there's an Aloe Vera one you can get.

EccentricaGallumbits Tue 29-Sep-09 18:09:49

DD1 has just exploded in a similar manner.

am beginning to suspect a lurgy rather than an irritation.

Thought it felt different to my usual cycle linked irritability.

BIWI a colon cleanser is perhaps the last thing I need right now. a cork would probably be most useful.

BecauseImWorthIt Tue 29-Sep-09 18:10:44

Ah but - diarrhoea can often, strangely, be a symptom of constipation!

EccentricaGallumbits Tue 29-Sep-09 18:10:44

and by god my bum hole is sore.

weegiemum Tue 29-Sep-09 18:25:22

I have the thrush because I had a UTI ......

My bowels are pretty loose too - I haven't left the house today and my mooncup is not a sight fot the faint hearted (or weak-stomached!)

EccentricaGallumbits Tue 29-Sep-09 18:27:13

oh jeeez that is unplesent.

CloudDragon Tue 29-Sep-09 18:30:52

everyone in my family had so called IBS after years of pain we all went one by one on an exclusion diet:

My mum and I are totally wheat intolerant
My sister cabn't have citric acid
My nephew is dairy intolerant.

the difference in all of us is amazing. No more cramps/swelling
/tiredness/less irritable

and if any of us make a mistake we bloat out/diarrhoea

it's been great.

We were all fobbed off for years

If I were you I would exlude away!
