  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...
  2. General Discussion
    Hey guys, I am new to the forum and am looking for feedback. I have had IBS-D for many years and have always struggled with traveling and especially getting caught in traffic with no access to a restroom. I have found myself taking toilet paper and an extra pair of clothes with me whenever I get...
  3. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi, I am new to low FODMAP and heading to New York city in two weeks. Because I just started, I am not sure of what specific things I can tolerate. I'm very nervous about finding places to eat in nyc and not having any problems there. Has anyone been to New York city or lives there and has...
  4. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I will be on a cruise to Scandanavia next month. We will be having tours every day in mostly small towns. I will be walking, on buses and on trains. My IBS-D is much better controlled now on Viberzi but I still have episodes at times of explosive, watery diarrhea with only a couple of minutes...
  5. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi there, I'm hoping this group can offer some advice. I saw a few older posts about travel with IBS-D, specifically about a safari trip, but did not see any resolutions. Have any of you gone on safari recently and how did you deal with the symptoms? I have an upcoming trip to Kenya next month...

    Hi All, I'm wondering if anyone has had C-Diff, and would be willing to describe their symptoms in detail? Back story: I recently spent three weeks traveling in South America for work, where I got sick with something gastrointestinal, likely from contaminated food or water. I had diarrhea...
  7. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Folks, I've had IBS-D for about 15 years now. I usually have to go to the bathroom at least once pretty urgently in the morning, and sometimes again in the evening (especially if I have a large meal). I'm almost certain that the primary factor in my IBS-D is psychological stress / anxiety...

  10. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi all, I never post in these forums, though they've been a HUGE help to me through the 10+ years I've dealt with IBS-D (we are a great and supportive community!), but I will be going to China this year and I'm hoping to get some advice for traveling there. I'll be going to Beijing and either...
  11. Young Adult's Issues
    Recently I just took a week and a half trip to Hawaii. It was my first time flying ever. The entire trip was a battle with my IBS, but thankfully I was with family which I feel didn't make it quite so awkward or embarrassing. The only thing I think it can be is either dairy or wheat/grains...
  12. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi everyone, New on here! I was diagnosed with IBS-D in high school, and have come such a long way from that.

  15. General Discussion
    Hello. I am a somewhat new member to this forum; however, I find it an excellent place to read from others experiences and actually obtain a small sense of both comfort and community. Anyways, I digress. I recently started seeing a gastrointestinal specialist in response to problems that have...

    Hi, after some trouble with my health for quite a while i was finally diagnosed with IBS about 3 weeks before I was due to set off on a solo round the world bicycle ride to raise money for charity. I decided to go despite the diagnosis and see how I coped. I am now nearly 7 months into the...

  18. Gas / Flatulence / Bloating
    Hi all, I'm seeking suggestions regarding symptoms that I've definitely pegged to longer car rides, especially with fast driving. I guess the symptoms must relate to the vibration of the vehicle, as they don't occur when I'm simply sitting for a long time. 1) Strong feelings of bloating and...
  19. Working and Careers
    Hey All, I need some advice as I find myself in a predicament. I started my current job three years ago before my IBS kicked in. Within six months I was having chronic stomach issues (pain, cramps, etc). Tests ruled out IBD, celiacs, and many others so I was slapped with the IBS diagnosis. I...
