  1. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hello, im still struggling on a daily basis with my ibs. Just finished another round of rifaximin but idk how much good it will do. I know that there was one clinical study that mentioned somewhat positive results in symptoms after taking like 6-8 pepto bismol pills per day for 12 weeks or...
  2. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I hardly know where to start. I have had uncontrollable diarrhea for the last 9 years. It started quite suddenly and it is an every day, all day occurrence. The worst part is that I have little to no warning. I can feel ok one second and the next second I have a dire emergency. I often can not...

    Hey Friends, I've been eating a minimal diet just to see what foods trigger me. I normally get left upper side burning and bloating and cramping and spasms that last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months it seems. I have been making my own almond milk for a couple months when I decided to...

  6. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Has anyone here taken the ibs-smart® the blood test for IBS-d? It was developed by Dr. Mark Pimentel and his team M.A.S.T. at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles.

  8. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I swear if I poop one more time, you're all going to hear me scream - even those of you far away. Surely not everyone in this world has to have a bowel movement EVERY DAMN TIME they go to the bathroom. Does everyone in the world have to wipe their butts so much it's almost always bleeding...
  9. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Has anyone ever tried and/or had any success with treating their IBS-D with an elemental diet? If so, could you share your tale? Like most of us, I've tried everything and would even be willing to try this if anyone has found even some relief from it after the 2-3 week course that seems to be...
  10. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Ive had ibs-D for years and I recently tried a new probiotic. I had it custom made based on a submitted stool sample. So, I was optimistic this would finally be my magic bullet. But, instead, it gave me terrible D. And my immediate thought was to give up and stop. And I think thats a natural...
  11. Over-the-Counter (OTC) Treatments
    Having a particularly bad day today with my IBS-D. I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and saw an ad for something called IBSolution. (Facebook must have been spying on my Google searches again.) I found it on Amazon and started reading reviews, which seem promising. Below are the listed...
  12. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Does anyone else here have a fear of vomitting? Often when I have an IBS-D flareup (in the middle of one right now at work - Yay, Monday!), I'll also start feeling nauseous. I very rarely ever throw up. Only happened once this past year, prior to that I hadn't thrown up in nearly 10 years except...
  13. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    It's been a long time since I've posted here; only in the last couple of weeks have things gotten really bad. I had a followup with my gastro doctor (who I love) a couple of weeks ago, after about a month of pelvic floor therapy... they could tell the muscles on the left side of my colon were...
  14. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I will make this post short and sweet. I have had very bad IBS-D for over 30 years. I have done all the tests, elimination diets, and had tried all medications with no effect. I used to always be on this website looking for cures. Finally I got so discouraged I was just bound and determined that...
  15. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Does anybody actually feel a little "happy" when they get diarrhea? Like, "Oh, WOW, at least something is finally making an appearance from that orifice!" If so, can I get an "Amen" or a "raises hand"? I've begun taking the Dr. Schulze's Intestinal Formula #1. So far, no cramps (up to 3...
  16. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I've been dealing with my IBS-D for the past five years and still don't have a clear idea of what causes it. Have had two colonoscopies, an endoscopy, tried various elimination diets and other lifestyle changes, all kinds of prescription and over the counter treatments. Without my daily imodium...

    Hello all! I often read that weight loss is not a sympton of IBS, but gradually over the past year I have lost 18 pounds (actually, needed to) . Therefore, I am curious why weight loss is *not* included in symptoms. Every time I go back to normal eating I have a flare-up. SO, I go back on...

  19. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    It all started in late 2013. I was a 30yr old female, I smoked and drank and ate crappy food but I was pretty healthy. Rarely ever got sick, stayed around the same weight without much effort. And I'd always been regular when it came to the going #2. Then one day I noticed that my schedule had...
  20. General Discussion
    I often have watery stool after I eat dinner. Can good bacteria grow in this situation? I have been taking rather expensive probiotics and they do not seem to be making a difference, which I attributed to the watery stool washing them out. Thanks for any advice!
