I have been having this pain for 4 years. I have been diagnosed with colitis, ibs but nothing seems to work. I have had a colonoscopy and everything else leading up to that and more cat scans that I care to have had.

IBS is not a disease. It’s a functional disorder, meaning that the bowel doesn't’t work, or function, correctly. Its causes are unknow.Research states that that people who suffer from IBS have a colon, or large intestine, that is particularly sensitive and reactive to certain foods and stress. The immune system, which fights infection, may also be involved.


All the tests for IBS will come normal like endoscopy, colonoscopy, video camera,X-rays of the abdomen,barium meal studies & barium follow through tests. All these will come normal.There are other anti diarrheal medications. Also you need anti depressant medications.Taking probiotics will increase the 'good' bacteria in the gut which will help to ward off 'bad' bacteria that may have some effect on causing IBS symptoms and pain.


The prescription medications approved for the treatment of IBS are: Alosetron (Lotronex),Lubiprostone (Amitiza).Medications that affect certain activities of the autonomic nervous system (anticholinergics)are very effective in relieving the abdominal pain or stomach ache.


So I advice you to make an appointment with your doctor for these prescription medications. Till then you can take tab. naproxen. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Also take tab. Meftal spas. It is anti spasmodic. Both are availaible as OTC without prescription.


Please feel free to ask if you have any other question.

Relist: Answer quality.
I have pain in my intestines which is severe cramping I have done every test available and do not wish to make an appt with a local dr to go through all of this again. That is why I have enlisted your help. I need some relief from this pain and very unhappy with my last answer as I have already tried all of that. I need a consultation for pain medication and I can fax most of my medical records. The whole point of going through you is so I don't have to make an appt with a local dr.

It is a violation of federal law for a physician to prescribe any controlled substance without having first performed a face-to-face evaluation. Once an initial face-to-face evaluation is performed, it is not required that a face-to-face evaluation be performed before every refill, although it is expected that evaluations would be performed at appropriate intervals. Therefore, it is illegal for a physician to prescribe a controlled substance over the internet. The only way to obtain controlled substances legally is to see your physician.

As Dr.DLove has stated above that I also have stated the same thing. Medicines cannot be prescribed online without physically seeing the patient. Only over the counter medicines can be prescribed which I have described you above. So to get the prescription medication, I advice you to consult your doctor physically.
