    I have been underweight all my life and recently I was explicitly told by a vascular surgeon that it's making my IBS symptoms a lot worse. Without enough fat to keep things nice and separate and padded, things are becoming much too tightened inside. However, I can't tolerate most meats (pretty...

  6. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    long time no post! I went a long time with my IBS-C fairly under control, as I was treated for diastasis, which made a huge difference. Nowadays, I still get bloated and feel pressure/ nausea, but it's not nearly as bad with those muscles repaired. Recently my ibs has been causing weight gain...
  7. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    I've creeped on this forum for years but finally am posting. I'm 27 and have dealt with constipation issues since I was about 14. At 19, I went to the doctor and they said take more fiber, exercise, and drink water. That didn't help much, but my constipation would come and go at random...
