  4. Your Story
    My story starts in 2002 when I was in my last year of graduate school. Brought on by a combination of too much processed food, bad diet (some days I would forget to eat), and agonising over a perfect GPA. I graduated with a perfect GPA of 4.0. But at what cost? Near the end of my final semester...

  7. Diet
    A lot of people here believe that they have underlying physical reasons for their IBS, and that diet makes no difference. If this is true then a meal made up of Brussels sprouts, baked beans and pizza will have the same effects as steamed fish, mashed potato and pumpkin. It's possible that most...

    This is my list of flatulence-causing foods, from worst to best. This is just my personal list and I'm constantly working on this, changing things around. Everyone's list will be different, but I'm guessing the typical problem foods like alcohol, legumes, milk, bread etc will be at the top for...

    Rice is often a problem food for IBS and there could be several reasons for this. IBS sufferers might think that they tolerate rice because it doesn't cause gas. For many of us though, rice causes a lot of gas once its resistant starch arrives in the colon to be fermented by bacteria. Because...

    Hey everyone, It's been three years of constant symptoms now (Im now 20) and I don't know what to do! Wondering if anyone else has experienced bloating premenstrually, or has polycystic ovary syndrome and has ibs? Could they be related? Anything that can be done to alleviate the symptoms...

    I've joined this group on behalf of my husband who has IBS. We're both searching for solutions, but we can attest to the fact that he never had IBS before his colonoscopy about 4 years ago.
