  3. Welcome!

    Fodmap diet should be done with a dietician/nutritionist, but most insurances don't cover them.

  8. Mental Health
    I am IBS free now, but I have some anxiety issues. I get too anxious easily about things that would not make most people anxious, such as small things to be done at work the next day. Sometimes, it prevents me from sleeping. But, it generally prevents me from falling back to sleep after waking...

    7-8 days, I woke up after about 5 hours of sleep. I wake up due to a lot of morning gas. Then, I was unable to feel sleepy throughout the rest of the day (as always), even when there was little or no stress and even when I stopped using caffeine for a month. I noticed that this started happening...

    IBS often messes up my sleep. Sometimes rectal itching wakes me up. Sometimes mild diarrhea and urge to go early in the morning wakes me up. Sometimes, I am just not able to sleep early, despite doing all the things needed for good health and good sleep. I tried good sleep hygiene besides good...

    Hi, I just ate some, nice but constipating foods for 2-3 days and broke the rhythm of smooth bms. I noticed that I often sleep better when I have mild/bearable constipation. Today, I felt refreshed after getting 8 hours of sleep. I had a full evacuation, but with straining and a bit of pain. I...
  15. General Discussion
    I often have a bowel movement which is hard in the beginning, but smooth thereafter. The hard part is about 10-20% of the length. Sometimes it is not smooth and even incomplete, or even followed by diarrhea. But the initial hardness is always there. I always had frequent constipation and rectal...
