Bathroom SOS

Posted by jjd1999 in jjd1999's Blog, 07 October 2015 · 61 views

I am new to this site, but not to IBS. I joined this site for support and a way to vent my struggles when needed. Today is one of those days!! I arrived at work early this morning (I work 5am to 1pm) to find that our patient bathroom was not working and that the employee bathroom was no where near working 100%. This alone gave me major anxiety knowing tha...

My name's Angie. I'm new to this site (obviously.) Basically, I've spent the last 8 years trying to figure out why I have such painful stomach pains that are accompanied by bloating, constipation, diarrhoea as well as various other symptoms. In 2014, we discovered that I have endometriosis but that in itself didn't give me the a...


best results?

Posted by shibena in Miracle for IBS d, 27 September 2015 · 828 views

i eliminatedd wheat - and switched to white flour. 
this helped a lot. now realise the junk fibre in the wheat is the cause of ibs-d.
try it - if it works for you, i am happy.
must have 2-3 slices of white bread or roti everyday . this stabilises the condition .
avoid indigestible fibre like the plague
good luck...

stabilized allicin

Posted by jaumeb in jaumeb's Blog, 24 September 2015 · 1,336 views

I have been taking stabilized allicin as it helps some people with chronic pelvic pain. I read that it takes a long time (1 month?) to make a difference. I've been taking it for 6 days and I recommend opening the capsules and start with smaller doses. I'll continue taking it.


Ibs and mental health

For two in a half years i was having all the symptoms of ibs and intense nausea and vomiting. It threw doctors off becuase ibs wouldnt commonly cause someone to get as violently sick as i was. Multiple trips to the ER and just about every gastro test possible was taken. It wasnt untill i ended up in the ER by ambulence becuase i was so sick and couldnt ho...

A Solution for GERD

Posted by msg in msg's Blog, 14 July 2015 · 2,996 views

For the last 2 years, I had been getting thick phlegm accumulated in my throat during my sleep.  Sometimes, I would have had to get up and go to the bathroom to clear it.  In the mornings, the phlegm would come out in a dark brown color.  Sometimes, I had bad breath that would have filled out the bedroom.
I originally thought it had...


A Day in My Life

IBS, friends, family, anxiety

I love having a place to actually share how I feel with others without them thinking I'm completing disgusting, weird, and feeling as if I'm constantly being judged...because that's often what I feel on a day-to-day basis.  
I have most of the "regular" symptoms that people with IBS know, gas, alternating constipation, then less-than...
