  1. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Does anyone have endometriosis, ibs-c, and GERD? I keep eating the wrong things and it does not help to look up what is safe for others because they are not safe for me. I've been trying to get chores done for the past week but the second I start I get sick. Does anyone have any idea what I...
  2. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hello gang. Here's a recap of my symptoms and the things I've tried. I am 30 years old, male, had real bad IBS (worse than what I have now) from 2007-2008, then it went away. It then became a once or twice a year occurrence. It returned with a vengeance July 2017, when my mom had a heart attack...
  3. Your Story
    Hey guys, I'm new to this thread and thought it'd be good to discuss with people that are potentially going through the same thing... I have not been diagnosed with IBS-C (Because doctors think it's "All in my head". Honestly so frustrating to be told that when it affects my day to day life so...
  4. Welcome!
    Just found your page. I was diagnosed with IBS some 13 years ago after a stressful time at work. However having spoken to most IBS sufferers in my circle of friends who have periods of relief before a flare up mine seems to be constant. Can you help. My diagnosis came after as I said some...
  5. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi everyone! I'm quite new to this forum as I've been ignoring how much agony I am in daily with my IBS due to thinking it may due to my diet, although my diet has improved recently and yet - I am more in agony than when my diet was awful! Now believe me when I say this might be normal, but it...

My name is Michael. I will be 33 on December 22 and I am from NY. At the end of February 2016, I went to the walk...
  7. Welcome!
    Hi all! New member here looking for advice on chronic IBS C. I was diagnosed 6 years ago now, but have had IBS my whole life. I am already on the quite skinny side naturally, about 108-110 pounds as an adult. Also, I had to go to the ER this spring for my IBS and the x ray showed conspiation...
  8. General Discussion
    So it seems like most of my gut problems would subside if I didn't have to eat anything. Pretty much any food I put into my body gives me some sort of discomfort. Of course I want to make sure I get enough calories and nutrients, but does anyone know of ways to eat the littlest amount possible...

    I'm 18 (female), and I've been dealing with IBS for about eight years now. I also have Eosinophilic Esophagitis. I am now at the point where my life is completely put on hold because of my various health struggles. My GI doc says that it's just IBS from what she can tell. I've also developed...
  10. General Discussion
    So I've always been very regular and routine with my bathroom habits but lately things have been rocky and I'm very anxious about it. January I drank a lot of redbull and I experienced extreme intestinal distress (insane diarrhea lol) and since then I've been having some random issues. I've had...
  11. Welcome!
    Hi, Not sure is this is the forum to discuss this but I am looking for help and advice. I have been suffering from periodic episodes of feeling sick. It started a year ago and I cannot seem to find the cause. After having a colonoscopy test, I do NOT have crohns or colitis not polyps. My...

    Hi Everyone, Just looking for some honest feedback. I don't have IBS but the man that I am madly in love with does. I'll try to keep it short. We met two years ago online, we texted a lot, and then had a wonderful first date. After that, I saw him less and less. He works crazy hours, but he...
  13. Over-the-Counter (OTC) Treatments
    My bloating has been so bad recently and I'm not sure what to take. Thinking of adding in probiotics but I wouldn't know what to get, are there certain types? I have fennel and peppermint oil pills that I take when I see my stomach distending (which it does DRASTICALLY) or feel bloated. Any...

  15. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    So don't get me wrong I'm no stranger to having IBS attacks, particularly when I was just figuring out how to manage my IBS but after a while I thought I had worked it all out and that I knew which foods I could and couldn't have and what kind of situations made it worse. This caused my IBS to...
  16. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi everyone, New on here! I was diagnosed with IBS-D in high school, and have come such a long way from that. I was so embarrassed about the initial diagnosis, but now my family and close friends know and I feel comfortable talking to them about it. I have been through therapy and pretty much...

    Hi, I am waiting for a date to have a gastroscopy and colonoscopy. I have been told I have a dilated small intestine and a possible hiatus hernia. Recently I have been getting (what I hope to be) acid reflux. I tend to go really weak and get a rush of blood (to the head), nausea and a very...
  18. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hi Everyone, I'm new to these boards, so forgive me if there's a 'beginners' thread that goes over this. (If there is, please direct me to it!) Here's my story: My IBS-C started almost two years ago. I had lived my whole life up until that point (24 years) with no constipation, ever, barring...
  19. General Discussion
    Hello. I am a somewhat new member to this forum; however, I find it an excellent place to read from others experiences and actually obtain a small sense of both comfort and community. Anyways, I digress. I recently started seeing a gastrointestinal specialist in response to problems that have...
