IBS and Back Pain: Possibly Steps Toward Relief

Author: Scott Best

It has been quite some time since I last addressed the issue of IBS and back or lower back pain. But due to the overwhelming readership the articles I have published have gotten and the amount of reader emails I have received I feel it is time once again to address the issue and hopefully bring some notoriety to the subject. My findings over the last few years have been most enlightening.

I have long been a proponent that in some cases IBS is, or at least seems to be directly linked to spinal injury or damage. In my case it seems that way, as it does for hundreds of others who have written me, telling their stories in emails.

I want to personally thank all those that took the time to dig and find my email address. I have to admit that I usually have not made it easy. So those that did actually get an email through, and there have been many, I know had to expend some effort to actually find the email address.

Recently I got an email from a Retired Navy Master Chief who recently read my article on "Lower Back Pain and Irritable Bowel Syndrome" It is because of him, I guess that I have since been prompted to get off my keester and publish something. His story is much like my own, in fact the only difference I see in his story and my own are possibly the manner in which his back injury was delivered and our occupations.

The more email that I receive from people telling me very similar stories about their experiences with Irritable Bowel Syndrome; the more I am convinced that there is a definite link between back/neck or spinal injury and the onset of IBS.

It goes without saying that nerves that control gut operations get to and from the brain via the spinal column. So it only stands to reason that any amount of damage to those nerve corridors, conductors and conduits could and most probably do have an effect on the overall digestive system operation. It also stands to reason the worse the injury or disruption of nerve impulses to the gut, the worse IBS symptoms could or will possibly be.

Is it IBS or is it something else entirely

Author: Scott Best

Some times when attempting to talk about or deal with Irritable Bowel Syndrome one has to take pause and consider whether what one has to say is relevant or helpful in any way. It’s so easy to get caught up in the personal experience of what IBS brings to life that making a point rather than telling the personal side of the story gets lost, or at least seems to.

And as I pondered this thought something inside assured me that even just telling the story sometimes is relevant, sometimes just sharing the personal experience is important. It’s important for so many reasons that to not tell the story might be worse than not trying to help at all.

Every day I come across more and more people who like me, have suffered for so many years in obscurity or ridiculed silence, that for me at least it’s important to tell the story, to share the experiences, to let those that suffer know they are not alone in their struggle.

It just might be that by telling the story from enough different perspectives, after digesting enough information from enough sources there might be a revelation of sorts, the moment when we connect the dots from enough experiences that a cure or causation might be found.

In my last article I addressed the issue of the proper diagnosis for IBS, and again, I am dealing with this issue. It has been many months now since I spoke of the issue with my gallbladder that went acute and needed to be removed.
