How do I get rid of irratable bowel syndrome? It happens to me like once or twice a month and is one of the most painful experiences of my life. Almost like labor. I don't have insurance to go see a doctor, and it gets worse each time it happens. I'm afraid it might kill me soon if I don't do something about it. Thats how bad it hurts. I actually passed out last time. Does anyone know how to relieve the symptoms or treat IBS?

  • I have Ulcerative Colitis as well. The pain you are describing sounds like what I have, but I've never passed out! I know you don't want to go in, but you definatley need a colonoscopy. Take care.

  • go to the emergency room they can't denie you treatment. the doctor and nurses will test you and give all kinds of treatments as long as you tell them about your pain. there are free clinics or sliding scale fee clinics. will prescribe you meds and do all kinds of test also there are 4 dollar genericts meds at target and maijers. This is how I had to go about getting treatment.
    message me if you wanted more information.

  • total treatment and cost so far. 4 dollars a month for the med I am on, 125 dollar for emergency room visit, haven't gotten the bill for the other test yet. but I am Canadian citizen on a visa. they told me if I was American they would get me paper work to fill out for Medicaid. I was referred to a free clinic where they have nurse practitioners and a doctor oversees the nurses. it's a small free clinic but they are so sweet and do a pretty good job if you ask me. i also was passing out and everything else still going through the treatment. I was diagnosed about two months ago
