I am confused what I read on the Internet. Sometimes I read that coffee makes you bloated and than I read that it's a diuretic and makes you loose water weight. I feel terrible bloated lately and I don't know what to do. I am already drinking peppermint tea, fennel tea and I take x-las. I know I should drink more water ( I just forget sometimes) Would that help ? Any advice about coffein.

You can try and see if it helps... I kind of doubt that it will (imo). I drink coffee every day and bloating is my worst IBS symptom. I actually tried quitting coffee for 4-6 weeks last year to see if it would help and it made no difference at all with my IBS.Caffeine is a diuretic and will dehydrate you, but coffee can also irritate the GI tract in some people.

I'd be careful drinking too much coffee. Caffiene can be hard on the digestive system, making IBS symptoms more pronounced.
