Our expert says:
Amy, it might of course be a persistent infection, so the first would be to have a full blood count done to see if it is the case. If it is, stronger antibiotics are the only option.
It might also be that you suffer from something like fibromyalgia syndrome and a careful history should reveal if it’s the case.
The cramps might be due to the IBS, but it might be due to something different like endometriosis. The thing to remember is that there is no law that says that you can’t have more than one disease/disorder at the same time. Maybe the best would be to see a specialist physician and have it sorted out. Good luck.
