The IBS just hits occasionally after 20+ yrs dealing with it.
Lately, just constant constipation but finally becoming almost under control w/stool softener and probiotics.
OAB - is best its been in 20+ yrs , but still require incontinence underwear, even with OAB med and Inter-stim, and post-5 bladder surgeries.
Often pain in bottom of abd., lower pack, upper back .. cause undetermined ..but I BELIVE it is to do with the constipation issue.
From this study (12 hours ago):
I recently stopped taking the Hydrochlorothiazide about 2 weeks ago thinking it might have ben causing my dry cough attacks. The attacks have slowed down and not as bad. However i still get a couple though through out the day. Is this from possibly the pollens in the air i was hoping which is why I started taking allegra every morning.
From this study (4 days ago):
Numbness and pain is worse at night. Started Wearing a brace at night which really helps. Also soaking in warm Epson salts and then holding a cold glass of ice helps. Sometimes the numbness just about goes away during the day, even thought I perform normal activities.
