Abdominal Issues????

For about the last week, I have felt really rough, Chiari-wise.  I have noticed some abdominal discomfort (like I'm constipated) along with all the other symptoms....Anyone else ever experience this????  Thanks!

Yup...I was told at a young age I had IBS so I get this all the time...feast or famine....I hate it and it is always worse with extreme weather changes...season changes....stress...meds....u name the change and it rears it's ugly head.....

Have u tried drinking more water, a stool softener....and a gentle laxative like senekot?

DO talk to ur DR first !!! .......But many of us do have these issues.

I just went on the Internet and looked up Chiari and bowel symptoms...Found a great article actually written by Dr. Rosner (can you imagine???) about IBS and Chiari...So, it appears that they are connected!!!!!!
