As I mentioned in my last blog, I am going to document what it is like to have an invisible disorder. I will also be answering questions, getting various doctors points of view, what other people think it is, how they perceive us and me trying new things to see what may help lessen out pain mentally, physically or emotionally.
At this stage, I alre...

I have mixed IBS so it can be varying however I get extremely bad "episodes" when I get real bad bloating, cramps, diarrhea, constipation and vomiting.

Posted by mickeyp81 in mickeyp81's Blog, 13 January 2015 · 1,596 views

I have had IBS A since I was 21 (I'm 33 now.) I actually had it under control pretty well. But this week I had some kind of stomach virus and it seems to have set me back quite a bit. This time it is constipation. (When I get stressed out it is always diahrrea.) This virus, which  I caught at work, kept other people out of work for a day or two, it h...


Having a rough time

Posted by Julie1968 in Julie1968's Blog, 05 January 2015 · 1,116 views

HI all
I am recently new to this page.
A few weeks ago I came to this site for advice on whether I had IBS.
After taking advice from you guys I made an appointment with my doctor who also suspects I have IBS after describing my symptoms.
I am also going for blood tests to rule out an allergy to gluten, chrons disease.

With 2014 drawing to a close end, I can't help but to think how close I am to my mid 20's. Next year I will be 24 and the next I will be 25. I feel so far from that the young 14 year old girl I was when I first "became" sick. Although I didn't really become sick. I got sick and never got out of it. I don't know if this is even a valid distinction. One mom...


Might have a way to help manage this, atleast I hope.

So April of this year I started getting this IBS issue. I would not go number 2 bathroom for days...sometimes up to a week.

I went to my doctor and they ran test to see if it was a bacterial issue but they came back clear. Then then sent me to a Gastroe...


Please, don't make me eat.

Posted by alineb in alineb's Blog, 11 October 2014 · 3,268 views

Our lives revolve around food.
At least, mine does. 
Any time I visit family, one of the first questions I'm asked is, "Jeet?" (Did you eat?) This question is shortly followed by several plates of food being placed before you, no matter your answer. 
When discussing birthday plans, finding a nice place to eat is essent...

SIBO Flatulence

Uncontrollable Flatulence

I have been suffering from SIBO for 7 years. And I have to admit that I get a bit of a tired face when people start to talk about a "healthy" diet with high fibre and high carbohydrate. The obscure fact is that before I got SIBO that is the exact diet I was following - to the letter. I made sure I got AT LEAST 8 grams of fibre per day, if not more. I did...

Most of us have a keen interest in staying healthy, but for many people this does not translate into much more than a general effort to ‘eat well’ and get some occasional exercise.  While our physical health is obviously of critical importance, o...
