  1. Diet
    Hi, I have quite a sensitive stomach, and when it is unhappy I get flatulence and sometimes a bit of constipation. I'm struggling to work out what cereal would be best to eat to minimise these problems. I have been eating bran flakes, weetabix, shreddies, and I'm not sure if these cereals...
  2. Your Story
    Hi all, I am new to the site and would like to try and get some help or see if anyone has the same symptoms as me.. I am 20 years old and have suffered with IBS for the best part of 3 years and over this time it has gradually got worse. It is so bad now that I can hardly go out unless I can sit...
  3. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    I'm spreading my thread around this website for others to see because its a simple solution and it worked for me. If your symptoms do not improve in 4-5 months then I'm sorry! Either way this worked for me and i hope it does for you too. -Take 1 MAGNESIUM CITRATE supplement (150mg or 200MG)...
  4. Your Story
    For almost two years, I've been having severe issues with flatulence, diarrhea, and constipation. I don't know how to control the extremely loud gurgling, panick attacks, or stomach burning. Are there any dairy free products I can use? Diets or anything at all? I'm desperate and tired of living...
  5. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating

  6. Young Adult's Issues
    After reading through this forum a few times I decided that I might be able to find some help if I posted my story/symptoms. So here it goes: I've had social anxiety for the past couple years. Never been one for going outside to begin with, but once I developed anxiety I refused most chances...

  8. Welcome!
    I am prompted to post this because of massive bleeding at the moment - something I have usually assumed is internal haemerhoids. Diverticulosis is the only firm diagnosis I have - following my recent post-55 sigmoidoscopy.at the end of last year. I have had permanent near-diarreah for maybe 8...
  9. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I am at my wits end, i literally don't know what to do anymore. I started getting constipated a couple of years ago which was strange as I was always able to go to the toilet frequently with no problems. I usually don't go to the toilet for over a week. Today it got so bad, i had really bad...
  10. General Discussion
    Hi all, I've been ill for 2 years, doctors have diagnosed me with IBS. But what's killing me is that I think I could have "caught" these digestive system problems from a past partner. Here's the story: I gave oral to a partner and afterwards I heard people saying that he stunk up toilets...
  11. General Discussion
    i suffer from IBS and currently under medication. The biggest issue i'm facing right now, is flatulence. The smell disgusts me and the sound has made me embarrassed many times. (At home as well as work). It has come to a point, where I have completely forgotten the meaning of self. I really...

  13. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    Hi I'm new here, never posted before but sometimes read the threads to help myself feel better. Right now I'm feeling really low, I've just started at uni and last year I was diagnosed with IBS. The GP didn't really offer much help just put me on colofac which didn't work very well. I tend to...
  14. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    Hey guys, what do you think about following idea: My problems appear mainly after lunch. (A lot(!) of smelly farts) And in the afternoon and in the evening its getting worse. In the morning its really much better. My explanation to this are two following possibilites: 1. I suffer from SIBO...
  15. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    Every morning, I feel the urge to have a bowel movement. This morning I felt the urge and thought my stool would just come out without me having to push so much. However, my stool did not come out; all I did was pass gas. I went back to sleep. Even with me passing gas seems like a struggle...
  16. Diet
    My most successful diet is a combination of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and the low FODMAP diet. This thread might be confusing for people as I was still eating starches and high FODMAPs and getting mixed results. I wouldn't bother reading this thread as I was still eating the wrong foods...

  19. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    What will happen exactly? And how long will it take for the side effects of this to kick in? I'm taking laxatives because my bowel movements are strange (sometimes normal, then suddenly constipated, etc...). Will laxatives work normally as long as there is stool in your colon? And for how long...
