    Hi guys, was diagnosed with IBS a couple of months ago although suspected it for years but over the last 3 months it seems like I've had either all or some of the symptoms constantly or it goes away for a few days so I stop taking medication but then a few days to a week later I'm throwing up...

    How would you describe your IBS experience? I am a doctoral student at Oxford University and I am investigating mind-body connections in patients with IBS. IBS is a very complex, disabling illness and we are studying the interplay between physical sensations and mental reactions to pain (e.g...

    Hello everyone, I'm new to the site so this is my first time posting. I was diagnosed with IBS-C about 4 years ago at the age of 15, and had it mostly under control until February of 2014 - right in the middle of my freshman year of college. In late February, I had a bout of constant diarrhea...

  7. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I discounted having PFD for a long time because I've never had kids but now I'm finding out that there's more to it. Sorry for the long post, I'm copying info from a couple of sites. I want it all in one place for my own reference but hopefully it will help some of you as well. Copied text is in...

    I just joined and have been recently diagnosed with SIBO. I have started protocol. Getting off of grains, dairy, processed foods and sugars immediately put my lower gut to rest. My upper gut feels like it is going to implode! Is this typical of SIBO? or should I be looking into other organs...

    Hello, I'm a 29 year old female who has dealt with IBS for years. I deal with the frequent urge to go, as well as diarhea. I also have some other symptoms which I was wondering if anyone else had. Often before I have the strong urge to go (or an "attack" as I like to call it), I often get...

    As would be expected for someone with IBS, I am lactose intolerant, I can't digest food high in fiber, anything too spicy, or anything with a high soya content. However, if I get into the routine of drinking coffee, all these symptoms go away. I can happily have a glass of milk, without any...

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I've had IBS like symptoms but was never diagnosed with anything, so I believe joining the Military is possible. My only fear is bootcamp. I wanted to know if anyone has been to bootcamp with IBS like symptoms and what their experience was during the...

    I have been taking Librax pretty consistently one a day for the past 3-4 months for esophageal spasms. For the most part It's worked. Lately I've been experiencing irregular heartbeats. (Double beats, pounding sensation). I'm seeing a cardiologist who ran tests that suggest that nothing is...

  18. General Discussion
    Hey all, I was recently diagnosed with IBS, and was hoping to get a few things from you guys, namely: 1) peace of mind, and 2) some advice for possibly achieving remission. I am a male, only 22 years old, but lets just say I've had a "temperamental" gut for quite a few years. This October...
