  1. Traveling with a Health Condition
    Reading through a lot of the posts on travel tips, it affirms me that I am on the right track in terms of being prepared to lower anxiety and risk of flare-up. However, I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for meal prep that I should keep in mind for an upcoming trip, which I'll describe...

    As a new member who suffers with chronic IBS-C I would be interested to know if there are any foods, apart from the well documented, that trigger your IBS. For me, sweet potatoes are one of the worst and currently onions are giving me bother. I have worked out over the years that it is not...

  5. General Discussion
    I noticed that drinking a beverage (soda or orange juice) just after eating makes me experience my typical IBS symptoms. When I don't drink anything right after eating, I don't seem to experience any symptoms (or at least, they're pretty mild). What I do is, wait an hour or so after eating and...

  7. 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...
  8. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hello, all... I posted here a few days ago for the first time and just wanted to address another one of my questions. My doctor recently told me that it would be a trial and error process to find which foods would irritate my IBS-C, but eating has since been causing me great anxiety. I have cut...

    I'm a 32-year-old female, trying to find some coping strategies for dealing with depression and anger around not being able to eat anything without feeling nauseated and going through extreme bloating and back pain.

  12. General Discussion
    So I've had IBS-D for all my life (although I believe it was just the docs fancy way of telling me he couldnt be bothered to run tests). Recently (over the past 5 months) my symptoms have become unbearable. My food intake is limited to 400 calories a day now, and I can only eat specific foods...
  13. Prescription Medications
    Hi all, Has anyone who is taking omeprazole found that they are no longer digesting certain foods? Without being too graphic, I've started to find that parts of previously digestible foods are turning up in my BMs (bell peppers, carrots etc). I'm really worried because this means I'm not...

    Hi all, First time posting. My doc has me diagnosed with IBS since I was about 18 (27 now). Basically, my mother ws diagnosed with IBS (with now turns out to be diverticulitis) so anytime I went in with stomach pain, I was told it was IBS, without any further tests done. In the last three...

  17. Abdominal Pain
    Hi, I don't just have IBS. Though for the last 3 painful years the GI doctors just want to prescribe IBS meds & don't take me seriously. I've finally found a great, compassionate doctor who I know will cure me so I will never have to be in this intolerable pain again. I believe in him. He's the...
