    Hi, Bit of a gross post, but has anyone else with IBSD experienced their food not digesting (as in coming out in their BMs)? I've found that no matter how easily digestible the food (and, believe me, I've done research on easily digestible foods!), I'm finding undigested material when I go to...

    Hi guys, So all tests so far have come back clear. Had standard bloods run, tumor marker tests done, F.O.B test carried out, and an ultrasound that came back clear too. So today my doc prescribed me creon (a medicine which gives the digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas) to take before...

    Does anyone experience abdominal pain from drinking anything? Drinking water (or any fluid for that matter) triggers gas, cramping, and a bowel movement for me (often loose/diarrhea). It feels like a raw burning pain in my abdomen. This is alarming because I am not able to reach my daily...

    I can't find any studies on the link between early dinner time and efficient bowel evacuation. Maybe this is one reason why IBS-C / Gas / Leaky Gas is so poorly understood. Eating dinner earlier and diet has made a big difference to evacuation time for me so I hope this post helps those with...
