Can mebeverine cure IBS nausea? I've been having a lot of gas, burps and bowel movement, so I'm sure it's my IBS, but the nausea is the worst one.

Not likely: Unfortunately we don't really have medications that "cure" IBS. Most of our medicines for this ailment just address symptoms. Mebeverine is mostly an antispasmodic.

Why is it whenever I have very little fiber in one day, it helps with my ibs, but isn't that unhealthy?

Why is it whenever I have very little fiber in one day, it helps with my ibs, but isn't that unhealthy?

On the contrary: Fiber is considered healthy. Average adult should consume about 20-30 gms fiber each day. It helps regulate the bms, makes it easier to go and helps against diverticulosis too. Constipation and diarrhea, commonly associated with ibs, both reapond well to fiber. I recommend taking it on a regular basis. ...Read more

Started Cymbalta (duloxetine) 60 mg one month ago.  now experiencing hypersomnolence & IBS sx (constipation 1 day, diarrhea the next) .  side effects?

8yo no BM for a few days, then has bouts of stomach cramps, hard stool, then softer stool. But a bunch in one day. Happens often... Ibs? Mom has ibs

Stomach cramps: Sounds like it is constipation which is very common in 8 y/o rather than IBS. Use peaches, pears, and prunes, eating the fruit and drinking the juice. Plenty of water and perhaps Miralax (polyethylene glycol). If you child has not been seen for this then get a check up first. ...Read more

I'm 20. I had loose stool one day in dec, then muscle weakness, nausea, light sensitivity, fatigue, dizziness, migrane &vomiting. Now IBS type symptoms?

Mostly migraine: Light sensitivity, fatigue, vomiting, dizziness, nausea all happen with migraine. The diarrhea was something else. It depends on how often you're getting these symptoms whether something else needs to be done. If you get frequent migraines you may want to talk to your doctor or a neurologist about preventative medication. ...Read more

How does ibs come about and how can it naturally be cured?

In 400 characters?: The GI tract has a very limited # of symptoms to signal its distress--nausea/vomiting, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, pain, fullness, bleeding, etc. As you know, many of these characterize ibs, but are also seen with inflammatory, infectious, ischemic, malabsorptive, and functional disorders. Directed lab work, imaging, biopsies, stool studies are appropriate in excluding non-ibs pathology. ...Read more

Would one hit of weed actually ease my extreme IBS? I've never smoked it nor do I really want to but I'm very ignorant about medicine.

No.: The only indication for medical use of THC is for appetite stimulation in patients suffering from anorexia related to metastatic cancer. The drug is called dronabinol. How do you know you have IBS? Who told you that? Don't use some wastebasket diagnosis that some poor excuse for a doctor gave you as an excuse to try street drugs or to get high. ...Read more
