I have a spastic colon, but it seems like I get a fibro flare when my IBS is out of wack (sometimes D, sometimes formed). My belly across the bellybutton area gets sore after a BM. Sometimes I don't think it is the colon as when I pinch an inch of skin in that area, the skin is tender. Also, people with IBS, what do you do for the aching. Does anyone take Bentyl? Does it work? Also, is there a specific diet we should be on? My gastro sure does lecture about what things are when I see him, but never really tells me what to do. And when he says "spastic" colon - I know that is a muscular dysfunction, but he never relates it to my fibro. Any suggestions?
