  1. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I've had IBS-D for more than a decade. I have experienced the same despair as everyone else in this forum. It is a really tough disorder to deal with. I had been taking VSL #3 for about a year and I was doing okay. I had managed to achieve a little stability and not have every morning be awful...

    I drink juiced ginger rhizome before I eat dinner to aid in digestion, and I also drink it to reduce pain. Since ginger has antibacterial qualities, can it void the the probiotics I am taking, as well? Does anyone have experience with regularly ingesting ginger and probiotics? Thank you!
  3. Leaky Gas (LG) / Incontinence / Odor
    Hi all, I am a 23-year-old male. My symptoms began in December 2017, and have changed somewhat in the past 5 months. At present, these are my symptoms: My anus frequently becomes moist, especially (but not always) when holding gas or bowel movements, soon after eating, or even while eating...
  4. Your Story
    Afternoon all, I've been wanting to tell you my story but I'm pretty much always busy having to go poop 4-5 times a day or doing Uni work, but I've decided to take this weekend off. THIS IS A LONG READ - WARNING! TRIGGERS FOR EATING DISORDERS. An introduction about me and how I believe I...
  5. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I see Dr. Mark Hyman's name mentioned so often so I read one of his articles and he says VSL#3 probiotic will treat and potentially cure a lot of IBS-D cases. Does anyone have any experience with VSL#3? it's available on Amazon and the reviews sound very good.

    Hi all, I've had ibs for several years, main symptoms gas, frequent bowel movements (not necessarily loose) and some pain, mostly lower abdominal. Since taking naproxen and morphine for a chronic anal fissure for two weeks in December, I have had new ibs symptoms and pain. Upper gastro pain...
  7. General Discussion
    Hi all, I'll apologize now for the long post - thanks for taking the time to read. I was diagnosed with ibs about 8 years ago and this has been confirmed with recent colonoscopy, small bowel MRI, stool samples, blood work, and endoscopy. It mostly caused me frequent bowel movements (but not...
  8. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    For decades I had what seems like a sluggish bowel so fiber in the diet helped a great deal. IBS first showed up several months ago after two rounds of antibiotic (for tooth pain/abscess after unsuccessful root canal). I thought the FODMAP diet might help and plan to follow it in March along...
  9. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi everyone, I'm new here. My dad sent me this page to see if I could get some tips and advice. Stomach issues run in my family, hemorrhoids, crohns, etc. I have bleeding hemmoroids and anemia from bleeding so much. I'm had 2 colonoscopies and an endoscopy and there was nothing seriously wrong...
  10. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Looking for a probiotic that specifically works well for constipation. Seeing some research that B lactis DN 173-010 and Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12 work well, but these are difficult to find. I'd appreciate hearing what's worked for you.
  11. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Just FYI, I have chronic constipation--long story but last week my GI doctor put me on Align probiotic. It is for IBS C & D. Might be worth a try and can't hurt anything. So far I can't tell much but it's only been a week. Dr said there has been actual testing on this particular strain and...
  12. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Anyone drinking this and got good result? As I am drinking this once a day and the cramps and weird stomach movement now gone. Hmmm?
  13. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi everyone, I have had symptoms of IBS for quite a while but only recently have begun getting diarrhea after a bowel movement. The diarrhea, of course, is preceded by unbearable pain and urgency in the lower abdomen. But the diarrhea happens after a normal morning bowel movement. Within 20-30...

    I have had IBS c for quite a while now. I had been taking Amitryptiline and fiber capsules and it has helped, some. Last year I had some other health issues, Sciatica. While I was sorting that out I changed a few things to deal with that and some of my symptoms changed as well. I'm still...
  15. General Discussion
    Hello Are probiotics important for health? Have you heard of the probiotics like Nucific Bio X4, Perfect Biotics, Essential Cultures? Do we really need them? I've started this topic out of the need to educate people on here about Probiotics. And me too I need some answers. I find some...
  16. General Discussion
    Hello all, I'm brand new to this forum, so thanks for having me! I don't typically post on forums, but lately, I've been feeling as if I have no where to turn. If any of you have underwent a similar experience, please write about it or advise me what I might be able to do. I don't want to...
  17. General Discussion
    Hi all, I figured since I've read nearly every post regarding IBS, specifically PI-IBS, I figured I'd share my story and where I'm at. Hopefully it helps ease the mind as some of these stories did for me. Back 4 months ago, I had gotten sick after eating ground beef that must have been...
  18. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    was wondering if lactic acid can cause diarrhea, most probiotics tend to have a laxative effect on me.
  19. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    which probiotics have people had success with for the C: i am taking florastor, culterelle, and align. any others that would be good to add to the mix or replace these?
  20. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    So here's something i've been wondering but way too afraid to give it a go. I don't know everyone's experiences here so feel free to post your opinions and thoughts. I've been following a low-FODMAP diet with L-Glutamine to heal my gut for about a good 8 weeks now. I've seen definite...
