College is the worst thing to happen to IBS

Posted by Gena in Gena's Blog, 22 April 2015 · 752 views

It has now come down to the last 3 weeks of school and I cannot function. It seems that everything is going wrong, yet I am finally seeing positive outcome with my hard work and dedication. I may be an overachiever, actually I am pretty sure I am, but it has now lead to multiple moments of backed up bowel movements. I've been taking milk of magnesia, some...

Stomach flu and IBS

Posted by mickeyp81 in mickeyp81's Blog, 13 January 2015 · 1,616 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 · 1,152 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. At times it would be SO painful and then I would get horribly painful diarrhea instead of constipation. 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 · 3,287 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...
