I've been away from this board for about a year and returned with a new id (couldn't remember password and changed e-mail address).Looks like the same sort of postings going on. Heart rending stories from people who are suffering a lot more than me. Same names quoting medical publications and data. Plenty of disagreements and unfounded theories but very few success stories.I guess if people find "a cure" then they are likely to stop using the board, so we may not share in their success, although I suspect these are as rare as rocking horse sh*t.Does anyone have any good news? I don't.It seems to be getting worse but I can put up with it.I pump myself full of fibre, plus Immodium when I'm out socialising. I can cope with ****ting 3 times before leaving for work and get used to a regular explosive #### after a lunchtime sandwich.I'm undecided about probiotics, like why do you have to keep taking them, why don't they take over and colonise your intestines. Do they really work, or are they a marketing con trick?I've got a pack of Caltrate plus (or similar) sitting in the cupboard unopened since I read about it on here over a year ago.I can't fathom out whether it's certain foods. Should I worry about dairy products, high fat products, bean and pulses, spicy food, wheat and gluten? There's no pattern to it, although the spicy stuff comes back and bites!Now I'm sounding like all the other hard luck stories. It's a bloody annoying condition but it won't stop me doing the things I want to do. It's just the occasional embarrassment of my arse exploding in a toilet somewhere near you!Enough of my ramblings, I just want to hear from someone with some positive news for a change.Oh yeah, no pseudo-medics putting anyone down please.
