I have been suffering with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for decades now and the symptoms became worse after I was put on medication for high blood pressure. While my doctor did not tell me the final diagnosis, I know I was on an ACE-inhibitor and the symptoms match intestinal angioedema.
It’s been over 3 months now since I changed my BP meds and the bowel pain has gone down but comes after passing stool – I do get some pain with straining but then I get these waves of pain that are in the lower abdomen and buttocks. It can last up to an hour, sometimes two. Eating food does not seem to trigger the pain.
