Benefiber Pain Causes and Reviews


Pain is a signal in your nervous system that something may be wrong. It is an unpleasant feeling, such as a prick, tingle, sting, burn, or ache. Pain may be sharp or dull. It may come and go, or it may be constant. You may feel Pain in one area of your body, such as your back, abdomen, chest, pelvis, or you may feel Pain all over

Pain can be helpful in diagnosing a problem. If you never felt Pain, you might seriously hurt yourself without knowing it, or you might not realize you have a medical problem that needs treatment.

There are two types of Pain: acute and chronic. Acute Pain usually comes on suddenly, because of a disease, injury, or inflammation. It can often be diagnosed and treated. It usually goes away, though sometimes it can turn into chronic Pain. Chronic Pain lasts for a long time, and can cause severe problems.

Pain is not always curable, but there are many ways to treat it. Treatment depends on the cause and type of Pain. Pain relievers and other medicines, acupuncture, physical therapy, and sometimes surgery may be helpful.

My daughter suffered with severe constipation from age 3 and was misdiagnosed with all kinds of things, the lastest irritable bowel with constipation. She also has exercise induced asthma.By chance at age 17 someone suggested she give up gluten in her diet. The constipation went away, she felt wonderful. Her asthma was much less severe. She will be 19 this summer and still gluten free and feeling great. Don't let her suffer. Have her tested BEFORE you try giving up gluten as she has to have it in her system to get a proper diagnosis. If she gives it up first and feels better it is incredibly Painful to go back on it for testing.

I was taking Benefiber for 2 months and started getting a dull Pain on my lower right side. A few days after I started getting muscle twitching. I did not think it was the Benefiber at the time and continued taking it. I was not on any other mediation. Later on my bowels felt sore and Painful. I was drinking a lot of fluids and eating prunes and bananas, but my bowels felt like it was dead and I had to rub my back to actually get the feeling to go. When I did go my stools were soft not hard at all. I landed up in the ER one night when I felt my heart being ripped out of my chest. My ECG was normal and I realised that it must have been a severe muscle twitch. This was the beginning of frequent muscle twitching in both my legs and my arms....mainly my left arm. My left arm was sort of stiff from all the twitching. My doctor did not know what to make of it. I decided to stop taking Benefiber because that was the only thing I added recently. After two days my bowels felt much better and the twitching intensity decreased. The frequency of the twitching remained the same. After one week everything is getting back to normal. I still have some slight bowel Pains and twitching after one week. Waiting for when there would be no more adverse effects.
