You maybe scared and worried if your reading this, I know I was! The good news is most ppl with ibs-d-pi will be improved in 8 weeks, studies say they show improvement after 8 weeks after being treated with placebo. i am back to normal.
i would describe it as the body healing itself, or the intestinal bacteria or flora returning to normal. The Monash fodmap diet is scientifically proved as useful, even though everything on it may not apply to you - for ex., im not sensitive to gluten or milk when im back to normal. and these sensitivities are dosage related. Maybe for example, you can have one serving of something but not 3 servings. Yes, probiotics are also scientifically proven useful. Everyone is different and you must research solutions and your own body's reactions to dietary changes. And de-stress yourself if possible! Stress is definitely contributory to ibs.

I got a stomach virus first week of November 2016.
5 months later....still not back to 100% normal (I am better than I was in November but still getting diarrhea more often than I should...like every other day or every third day). Actually feeling 100% normal except for the diarrhea / loose stool.
Probiotics initially helped but eventually made me worse.
